In this video I do my best to answer a viewer's questions regarding CCNP vs DevNet. Also, he asked a question which I forget to answer. Today, if I was hiring someone to be a network engineer I would prefer an experience engineer with no python experience over a developer with no networking experience. If I needed someone specifically to write network tools, then I'd go with the developer. 0:20 Quick Update 1:25 Viewer Question 4:40 Studying for CCNP vs CCIE 7:00 Viewer response 12:40 Automation is here to stay 17:38 CCIE vs DevNet blueprint 23:00 The future of networking.

Yaaaaaay! I am flabbergasted and so happy that you posted another video! What a treat! Please come back on the regular buddy.
happy to see you again Jeremiah Wolfe , you still showing me the best path to my career every time i watch your videos . thank you
I agree that the cli won't go away soon, because on the live network let's say when something complex is broken (like an L2VPN or EVPN) cli it's the most useful tool, however doing repetitive tasks with cli will not work anymore, I think that the one question was missed here: Should we go and try be an expert on networking(CCIE/JNCIE) or just stop at Professional level and from there start learning things like cloud/automations/data center/ hacking and becoming some sort of DevOps engineer, should the time invested in CCIE prep be invested in learning other types of tech? Is is worthy in 2022 to go all in for an expert level when you can be more ,,well rounded" let's say. I guess the answer may be both in an optimistic way, expert level knowledge differentiates yourself from the rest, but knowing all other tech may make you more valuable than the rest, kind of a dilemma.
Hey JW. Sending positive vibes to you and your family. I hope your little one recovers soon. Thank you for your content and explanations, clear and to the point. I know you busy but I'm alaways looking forward to your next one. great video topic, I'm going the devnet route but for my personal knowledge, i'm going to tackle the ccnp first - i did my ccna already
This is my first video of yours. Awesome stuff!
I love hearing your stories and insight from your career as a network engineer. That's the next step in my career and I'm always wondering what it's really like.
Love your content dude. It’s always helpful
Awesome indeed! Thank you! This helped a lot. It really did. I think I needed this breakdown. I like how you made a clear definition between scripting, coding, and programming. I think alot of people like myself get confused at those terminologies at time.
It’s good to know that both schools of thought are still relevant and needed today.
I really enjoyed your breakdown!!! It’s like do I want to master and know the networking protocols and commands of MPLS, VRRP, OSPF, BGP, etc like my boss and not care about python, ansible, or those expensive Cisco automated tools.
or do I want to know how to automate those processes and save the company those man-hours, time, and perhaps be more efficient while learning software programming languages that could and will accelerate my career! I see your name became more powerful because you had a skill in those automated processes! That’s cool and awesome.
I am reading a network automation and orchestration book along with DevNet and the author relates it to a pilot. I guess it comes down to a pilot 👩✈️. Pretty much the airplane is able to fly on its own and the pilot makes sure that the plane goes through its automated and orchestrated processes. The pilot has a great understanding of those tools of automation and orchestration that can make the plane take off, fly, and land on its own and only intervene when needed.
Or do you want to be a pilot that flies the whole plane from start to finish. You do everything manually as the pilot lol and have no automated processes. That may can lead to a lot of errors if you’re not careful. But it does sound cool that you know the in and outs of the plane and each process that requires you to take off, fly, and land. If all else fails you can do it yourself. But on the other hand we both know technology and those automated processes will only evolve. Now with your video and me talking to myself, i am looking at DevNet with more confidence.
Also praying for you and your family! Thank you for all your knowledge and detailed explanation.
There are you are
