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.

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.
