Having worked in software and networking for over 20 years, looking back, I realize that most of what I have learned (and continue to learn) is due to the generosity of countless others in sharing their time and knowledge, whether in person, through books or via blogs and videos.

Isaac Newton once famously said: “If I have seen further, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.” Each of us, in our own personal journeys of discovery, acquire and ingest immeasurable amounts of wisdom and knowledge from the countless giants in our own lives. These giants, most of whom serve as unknowing mentors to us, help open our eyes and illuminate the path ahead as we take incremental steps forward.

Paying each and every one of these benefactors back is impossible.  Instead, OpenEye Software is a humble attempt to pay it forward and share my learnings with others through blog posts and code content centered around network automation based on open-source tooling.  I hope you may find these writings useful.
