6:00 pm - Registration 

6:30pm - Welcome and Announcements

6:45pm - 7:15pm - Richard A Steenbergen: Building a Next-Generation Network Infrastructure using EVPN/VXLAN

An exploration of next-generation network architectures and design techniques, built on technologies like EVPN/VXLAN.

7:25pm - 7:55pm - Anthony Miloslavsky: Automated Testing In Network CI/CD Pipelines

As the idea of treating your infrastructure as code (via CI/CD) becomes more and more popular in the networking space, the testing and validation best practices that are present in traditional software development pipelines are often an afterthought or a "nice to have". After some background on why automation principles in networking both are and aren't different from those in software development, we'll touch on the various types of testing that are present in software development today (unit, integration, etc) and how they can be applied to automating your network. The discussion will focus on developing reusable post-change testing with tools like Gitlab and Grafana, and will end with incorporating network simulation into your pipelines to achieve true pre and post-change testing.

8:00pm - 9:00pm - Networking Social
