I have some exciting news to share with you. I’ve been working on a book lately together with Russ White. It’s called Unintended Features – Thoughts on thinking and life as a network engineer. The book is partly based on blog post we have written in the past but also some unique content for the book. The outline of the book is as follows:
So you’ve decided you want to be a network engineer—or you’re already you a network engineer, and you want to be a better engineer, to rise to the top, to be among the best, to… Well, you get the idea. The question is, how do you get from where you are now to where you want to be? This short volume is designed to answer just that question.
This book tries to teach concepts not found in other writings such as thinking more about architecture and seeing patterns in technology and how to stay current in the networking industry. With the rapid pace of the networking industry it seems like we are sipping from the fire hose. How can we prevent this? Isn’t every new technology pretty much an old one with some new parts? When you start thinking at that level and start to see the patterns you won’t feel as stressed about the evolvement of the industry.
If you want to buy the book it’s priced at 9.99$ currently + VAT Unintended Features.
We’ve just published it and it’s published at Leanpub which means we can push corrections and updates to it. There will probably be some editing errors and spelling errors etc so please report those and we will work them out.
