Programming 101 for Network Engineers

Another great article in this series. I didn’t even consider the following, but it actually makes sense…

Ultimately, if you can’t touch type, any written documentation (or email or whatever) you produce will take you at least twice as long to create as someone who can. It’s probably not going to be as good either, as you’ve had to focus far too much on the typing and had little energy left for considering the actual content.

I consider touch typing a second nature for most network engineers. But looking around this is not the case.

I am sure Steven Iveson will touch on this in his follow up articles but I can really endorse Codecademy to learn some basic programming.
