This is the right time on the year where we need to think what we want to do and define our goals to upcoming year, i consider this an important step to make you focus in your career and step away from the darkness (dead times). Comparing what i achieved this year it’s embarassing but i’m looking for a great 2017. This year i have to renew some of my Certs (2 years gone…) like Juniper and Checkpoint. This year i’m expecting to enhance my knowledge about Azure/AWS Platforms, Web Application Firewall, CyberSecurity, DNS RPZ , DDoS, SSL Decryption and maybe others a long run. Network Design and Automation stil my priority, but maybe my employer will challenge me next year, so i will add it later to my list :)
Likely maybe i will do some exams:
VMware Certified Professional 6 – Network Virtualization (VCP6-NV)
Cisco CCIE Service Provider Written+Lab(?)
Cisco CCDE Written+Lab(?)
Palo Alto Networks Certified Network Security Engineer (PCNSE)
F5 Certified BIG-IP Administrator
F5 Certified Technology Specialists ASM
There are some books i’m still reading:
