Jason’s Blog - Network Automation - http://www.jedelman.com/

Topic 1 - You have been pretty actively lately, highlighting new projects and learnings on your blogs. Let’s talk about some of your recent projects.

Topic 2 - We’ve talked to you in the past (Jason, show #119) about why you’re making these transitions, but let’s talk about how the transition is going. What has worked well, what’s been difficult, what has failed?
Topic 3 - Lately you've been doing quite a bit of work with Ansible and Python. Are those becoming the de-facto tools for working in SDN environments, or automating networks?

Topic 4 - You are heavily involved in vendor-centric technology as well as what you’re learning on the side. What’s the biggest difference in learning in those environments (documentation, examples, support from experts, etc.)?

Topic 5 - How much does working on the new stuff cause you to be frustrated with your existing work projects, or is it helping unlock new opportunities?

Topic 6 - What do you wish existed to help make your evolution easier? (side discussion about Cloud Garage Labs)
