There is so much more to infrastructure and network today than ever before. Our Network has evolved and changed from physical routers and switches to a programmable Network (Virtual Machines, Containers, Cloud, IoT, IaC, NETCONF, CIDC pipeline, AI/ML and APIs). This disruption has led to a need to merge Network Engineers with Application Developers to help bridge the gaps between the infrastructure and development worlds and become one team. A DevNetOps team that is a fully engaged and empowered team marching toward one goal and desired outcome – to create new opportunity for the business and enhance the customer experience.

We’ll discuss our journey of recruiting developers to our infrastructure world and creating a win-win situation where our network engineers learn DevOps best practices and think in term of Automation to solve problems, automate workflows, network management and monitoring tasks; while on the other hand, how to help developers see the opportunity to apply their dev skills and DevOps mindset and tools, to ensure infrastructure availability, performance and resiliency.
