I am working to replace cli driven automation to RESTCONF/NETCONF underlying implementation, but it doesn't seem there is a lot of community activity yet and vendors don't have complete support for models yet.

Infra as code as vastly improved ability to abstract config and expose network state and changes to teams outside network SME's. Ansible and Napalm have presented great opportunities for simplification. I hope things continue.

This is a great start for initiating a dialogue and discussion about automation. As a developer turned automaton ( :-)) I feel there is a huge potential to leverage current tools and reduce the Vendor's opex and network user experience . Many are working on silos and pointed solutions which is a great start but a big challenge as well. I hope to be part of a comprehensive solution and contribute towards the same
