As a network person I am focusing on Red Hat Linux mastery, Open Stack, VMWare NSX, BGP EVPN+VXLAN, SDN northbound and southbound interfaces, NETCONF + YANG.

Also Ansible + YAML , Python, Open Stack heat templates, Puppet/Chef, etc for automation and deployment.

What about you?

    You may want to add Kubernetes to that list...

    Sounds more like self-inflicted torture than a career. Consider wearing a hair shirt. Same result but faster.

      I kind of like the new tech rather than pure hardcore networking which I have been doing for a while. I feel like working in tech will most likely be this way, large shifts in focus every 5 to 8 years during a career.

    Outside of Python and VMware, the rest sounded like a different language.

    You a dev? Dev ops?

    If you're a dev I'm far more behind than I originally thought.

      They say they are a network engineer and you should probably know what at least six of those things are.

    I am a sales guy and considering a role at Puppet. Is Puppet a good direction for me to go in?

    What do Devs do to evolve your tech exposure, learn new languages? When a dev says system design, are they talking about systems in a server + redundancy + distributed layers?
