Programming 101 for Network Engineers

An excellent post by Steve Jiveson on Packetpushers about the need for programming skills for network engineers.

Whatever your attitude today, you really should be asking yourself what you need to do to stay relevant, be meaningful and add value tomorrow – before your cost begins to outweigh your value. If you care about your career, if you think networking is more than just a job, you want to be more than just another ‘resource’. You want your creativity, knowledge and understanding to matter and have an impact. Well, I’d suggest that learning a programming language be high on your to-do list.

Enough said, I can only agree.
