So, given that I’ve got a very network-centric viewpoint of the world, what did this event really mean to me? How does it play into the future of networking/networkers? Well, I think its safe to say that network folks will have to learn new skills — else be doomed to being the elevator operator (my friend Mark Snow’s favorite analogy when discussing this!). There is of course no scenario at all, assuming a desire to stay relevant, where network engineers can just stop learning — period. Technology is of course not standing still, so even if you’re just learning new syntax or a new routing protocol, you’re not off the hook.
Carl has some interesting thoughts about the role that programmers will play in networking in the future.
