Darren’s O’Connor writes on his blog:
There have been numerous debates recently about how important the CCIE is going forward. My views seem to differ form a lot of others so allow me to get on my own soapbox.
What I am sick of hearing is how a CCIE is just a ‘cli jockey’ — I have not, and have never, considered myself to be that. I’m also sick of hearing that you’re either this or you’re that. People are far more complicated that being either one thing or another.
Darren has some thoughts on the recent debate about the value of the CCIE. Network folks aren’t going away any time soon, so don’t think the CCIE will be either.
