Looking into the future...Cloud

For the past year our family have experienced a lot of new things, challenges, and overall growth. We have a new addition and now we're a family of three! You really do learn to survive on less hours of sleep, very rarely do I sleep for my than 6 hours a day now, less for my wife unfortunately.  Even with that considered we wouldn't have it any other way.

I'm still at it here and there with Python scripting but my big focus for the last year was completing the Cisco Certified Design Professional (CCDP). This exam was absolutely tough and I barely squeaked by but I made it through. Even though I'm not playing much with Cisco at the moment, the concepts hold true for many other vendors as well. The most difficult topics were new tech that I just don't get to play with along with security. Be sure you understand Cisco ACI at a high level and Cisco security IDS best practice designs at a low level.

Next up for me is most likely Sec+ but I've also been taking a hard look at cloud infrastrucure. Our enterprise is heavily focused on moving as much as we can to cloud or at the very least, a hybrid infrastructure. Not much as landed in our Networking team's laps but it's coming down the line fast. Most likely I'll dive into AWS to get a good sense on what it's all about. Because I'll be honest physically racking less equipment is not anything I'll ever complain about!
