The writing masses in addition to professional media generate tons of articles each week. What’s the best way to keep up? My strategy is multi-pronged.TL;DR.
A recurring trend in security briefings I’ve taken over the last year is that breaches are assumed. If you don’t assume your infrastructure has been breached, you’re ignorant, and probably willfully so. Ostrich, meet sand.

More live blogging from ONUG Spring 2015 in NYC. Coverage of sessions related to open networking, SDN, use cases, customer experiences with emerging technology, etc.

IP Infusion has released OcNOS, an open networking operating system with a rich feature set right out of the gate. Ethernet switching continues to change. If you are Yet Another Cisco Buyer, do you care? I think you should. There are real dollars at stake. Eventually, it gets silly and/or irresponsible to spend money on Cadillacs.
The good folks at TechFieldDay.com are putting on a Software Defined Data Center Symposium in Santa Clara, CA on April 22, 2014. I won’t make the event this year as I can only be on a plane so often.

I’ll be a delegate at Networking Field Day 6 in San Jose, to be held September 11 – 13, 2013. For those unfamiliar with Tech Field Day, the idea is to take a bunch of peer-reviewed networking geeks who are socially engaged (bloggers, podcasters, etc.), and send them to Silicon Valley to hear technical presentations. Delegates are not paid, but their travel and expenses are covered. The event is financed by vendors who pay to present.
