The first event in 2018 is here! Thank you Equinix for providing us a venue and food this time.
6.00pm Arrival and food/drinks
"Flows and BGP, a multi terabyte story" by Louis Poinsignon
Louis has been working at Cloudflare for more than a year improving the network data collection and processing at scale (flow and BGP). The tools are currently used for business intelligence and traffic engineering. He also started implementing machine learning algorithms to detect traffic anomalies and automate remediation.
"Making Network Automation Consumable" by Jason Edelman
This talk will examine network automation and the use of data models and quickly shift to how we can ease consumption of network automation through Chat. Quite possibly we'll have a demo of both.
"My Project" by Paul Prisecaru
8.00pm Panel discussion: open discussion of topics submitted by the attendees in advance
Mircea Ulinic is a great advocate of event-driven automation, but also likes to share best practices regarding the preparation of the environment and how to start automating.
Jason Edelman works at Network to Code based out of New York. He spends his days helping clients adopt network automation through professional training and consulting services. He's been an active advocate for network automation since 2014 and yes, the the O'Reilly book on Network Programmability and Automation is getting printed soon--this month!
Jake Bunce is a London based DevOps engineer and builds services for infrastructure automation. He has over five years experience writing code to solve network, security, and systems infrastructure problems with Python and Go. His current engagement is focused on Kubernetes, monitoring, and service reliability to support network automation applications.
Although his current title is Senior Software Developer, he is a Network Engineer at heart who also happens to love Systems and basically anything you can manipulate into doing things for you without too much arguing (which immediately qualifies robots and dogs, but disqualifies humans and cats. Although he also like cats :P)
He is one of the co-creators of NAPALM and he believes in open-source. He takes great pride into replacing proprietary software with open-source and cutting ties with vendors who are often slow to react and usually introduce on each release more problems than solutions.
