Today’s Priority Queue is the second round of the Engineers At The Bar series, where networking pros gather for drinks and conversation about life in technology. (Listen to the first episode here.)
This episode was recorded live in Las Vegas during VMworld 2016. Greg Ferro hosts, and his guests are Tommy McNicholas, E.J. Spry, and Doug Youd.
The conversation starts with a debate about training and specialization, and whether there’s a lack of fundamental knowledge in the industry.
They also talk about what drew them to networking as a discipline, the prospects for open networking and disaggregation, the fear of not knowing things, vendor gripes, why 2017 will be the year of visibility and telemetry, and more.
Join us for a candid and casual discussion.
