I really enjoyed having this conversation and think you will too!
A colleague, Dan Pacheco, our F5 guru, and I joined the F5 DevCentral Connects podcast to do a show and tell of our AzureDevOps CI/CD treating F5 as infrastructure as code with their AS3 API and Ansible! If you wonder what a CI/CD pipeline looks like or how to really automate infrastructure with an API, data models, Jinja2 templates creating JSON, and Ansible URI module all packaged up in a Docker container that is build and released from Git triggers like a Pull Request!

*This* one was amazing! Ethan and I clicked very well and have a real thoughtful discussion and reflection about network state validation, automation, and what it means to be an network engineer (or are we even still network engineers?) in 2020.
Wow! I was actually invited to present a 30-minute break-out session at AnsibleFest! Incredible!
You can still watch the session by registering for free and searching for my name or “Automate Your Network: Introducing the Modern Approach to Enterprise Network Management” in the session catalogue.
My presentation is also available on my GitHub repository.
I am so incredibly fortunate to have been able to share my automation journey with Cisco DevNet Create this year !
In this discussion a very safe roadmap for automation success is discussed – check it out!

I was invited by BlueCat to join a round-table discussion with 4 other IT professionals to have an open and honest discuss about the automation “Promised Land”
“Six non-hype network automation lessons from IT pros. Five IT pros get real about network automation during the first Critical Conversation on Critical Infrastructure hosted in the Network VIP community.”
This was my first real podcast! Great discussion about network automation and treating infrastructure as code!
