Today’s Weekly Show is a two-part episode, recorded while Greg and Ethan were on the road at ONUG 2016 in New York.
In part one, the Packet Pushers sit down with a couple of founders to find out what it’s like to run a networking startup, and why networking presents a particular challenge for new companies.
In part two of this episode, Greg and Ethan talk about the direction the networking industry might take over the next five to ten years.
They discuss the transition from hands-on care and feeding of individual devices to automation, why buggy software may drive customers away from incumbents and toward open source, and how networkers’ skillsets, knowledge, and expertise will change.
