Catchup Blog from 23,333

Well, doesn’t time fly when you’re in a new job! I’ve finally settled down into my new role and been badged at “Technical Architect” – I’m not yet totally convinced that I’m there yet but it’s something I aspire to be.

I’ve done a lot of on-site consulting and design work in recent months and with a break in the work stack I finally have time to spending ‘solutioneering’ and more importantly going on training and catching up on today’s network technologies. Not that I was being left behind, I’ve still been watching twitter and reading blogs, but I haven’t been able to see theory in practice.

Recent weeks have been a flurry of vendor activities, and I hope to put a few thoughts to paper shortly for each:
– CMNA 1-day Training – learning the fundamentals of Meraki
– Cisco UCS / ACI Integration – a pilot course, but prompted a lot of discussion between engineers
– VMware NSX for Internetworking Experts Fast Track – pretty much says it in the title.

In the mean-time, I need to work out a solution for getting notes from Evernote into WordPress!
