Learning Through Experience

I’m a husband, father, network engineer, and consulting business owner bringing what I know and learn to you. Let’s learn together through video, labs, community, and other digital content.

Join Me On the Network Junkies Discord

I’m building a community, Network Junkies, where anyone from beginners to experienced network engineers can get together to learn, speak, and ask any question (there are no stupid questions) in a safe space. Get to know others in the community and improve your skills. Join me on Discord today!

What I’m Working On

I did a live stream 7 days straight to discuss network engineering during this weird time. I’m doing this to challenge to myself in public speaking & to encourage myself to do more learning and labbing. I will continue to do a live stream regularly.

Recently passed  the Cisco DevNet Associate and now I’m helping others learn so they can work towards automating and managing network devices more efficiently and obtain the DevNet Associate certification.

It's time to parse XML using Python. I've learned how to use the requests module to form a GET request to a network device. Taking the response, I convert it into a string which will be fed to xml minidom to create an XML variable containing the content I want. From that content, I'll parse out specific information using XML elements and attributes. I found this useful for studying the Cisco DevNet Associate.

If you start to think the problem is ‘out there,’ stop yourself. That thought is the problem.

At the time, the controller code didn’t have these features enabled.  How can a vendor […]

3 Business Books That Changed Me in 2019

Taking the steps towards building a successful business (or side-hustle) means picking up the knowledge to run said successful business. I wasn’t interested in building a high-growth business, fast. A different approach caught my eye which was building a one-person business. Can a one-person business be highly successful and profitable? That’s why I decided to […]

Cisco Live Photos

During Cisco Live 2019 I decided to bring my camera and document some of the action of a 28,000+ person conference. Photography has long been a passion of mine. My goal was to capture people’s interaction with each other, the lighting of the keynotes, have images for future blog posts, and to share what my […]
