AOL's J.McCollum: Trigger; configuring network hardware so you don't have to

  • Sep 17, 2012 · 7:00 PM

Trigger - Configuring network hardware so you don't have to:
AOL has a huge network. Are you done laughing? No seriously, we have a HUGE network. Yes, the network has shrunk over the years, but we still have over 5,000 network devices we have to keep up and running. In this presentation I will talk about Trigger, a network toolkit we created to manage our network hardware at scale.

Jathan McCollum is the Lead Network Automation Engineer for AOL's Network Engineering organization. He is focused on unifying all network engineering configuration and interaction under a suite of service-based components. Jathan is an avid member of LA's Python programming interest group, the SoCal Piggies, and the lead developer of Trigger, an open source Python network engineering toolkit.
