Time Travels with @CloudToad

Derick Winkworth, Network Engineer at ApstraDerick Winkworth (@CloudToad), Network Engineer, discusses the challenges that network engineers deal with every day, as well as the solutions they use to overcome them.

In any given network, that broader network is broken into smaller networks like one or more WANS, campus networks, wifi networks, data center networks — and when we build out the network we're really adding those sections to the network. Invariably, over time, little variations occur every time we add a little piece to the network. What's funny is that we have an insane way of dealing with these variations — by creating standards.
