The Packet Pushers community blog saw an enormous number of contributions come in during 2012. As the editor, I thank everyone that took the time to write. Writing is a time-consuming task; getting your thoughts down so that they make sense to someone else is hard. That you are are willing to share your knowledge and opinions says much about who you are. Many pieces written here have been springboards for larger conversations, mailing list discussions, study group talks, podcast arguments, and exchanges with vendors. The effort put forth is worthwhile. The networking community is richer for what’s been contributed here, and I hope we’ll see many more contributions in 2013.
This list represents the top 50 blog posts of 2012, as ranked by page views. Some of these pieces might go back to 2011, depending on just how popular they have been. Each category lists the the most popular pieces first. Take a look, and read through some of these great articles you might have missed.
