Or is scale less important than how an organization values the network itself? Join Tom Hollingsworth, Jordan Martin, Aaron Conaway, and Darrel Clute as they discuss.

The Premise: The efficiencies of network engineering will decimate engineering jobs.
The panel debates if this is true. They look at if this will happen across the board, if engineers will just become programmers going forward, or if automation will actually benefit network engineers down the road. And if automation does eliminate all these jobs, does it then become a pernicious form of support lock-in?
