Introduction to Intent-Based Networking

Ryan Booth has been in the IT game over 12 years with the majority of his experience focused on routing and switching (R&S).

Throughout his career he has been exposed to various network environments including service provider, government security, healthcare, enterprise data center and currently financial services. Ryan’s experience also stretches beyond route/switch to server administration (primarily Linux) and has progressively been diving deeper and deeper into current data center trends and DevOps/automation..

Even though Ryan’s passion continues to be DC networking he is shifting his focus to DevOps and automation. Don’t be mistaken though, he will sit down and talk any area of tech with someone until they are blue in the face.

Ryan currently holds a CCIE in RS and several CCNP certifications (R&S, Design), Ryan is also continuously picking up experience with Python, Ansible, containerization and software development.
