Network Automation & Programmability Survey
This is a brief survey on the topics of network automation and programmability. My plan is to gather what people are doing and thinking. Ultimately, I'd love to make sure my focus areas are aligned to others out there too! I am also prepping for a few presentations and would love to have this kind of data to share with others. While vendors and analysts have tons of this kind of data, I want "real" data although this sampling will be at a much smaller scale.
Full intentions on sharing the results should you want to see it. Let me know below.
Feel free to share with your peers as well. The greater the sampling, the better visibility it'll give all of us into some of these newer trends and tools.
