On Heavy Networking, Tom Hollingsworth joins us from GestaltIT. Don’t know Tom?
I’ll describe Tom as a long-time network engineer and CCIE turned Scruffy-Looking Nerd Herder who manages many of the community IT events you know as Tech Field Day.
I’ve known Tom for many years, and had this opportunity to get his take on many things I’ve noticed going on in networking.
This episode, we’re going rapid fire reaction. I’ll pitch a statement (which I might or might not agree with) to Tom, and let him react.
Buckle up, everyone. We’re going for a ride.
Provocative statements include:
- Certifications are dead
- Enterprise networking is dying
- If you want an IT career today, it’s cloud or nothing
- BGP is the kitchen sink of routing protocols and that’s bad
