About the Coding Networker Blog

The Coding Networker Blog is about programming from the perspective of a Network Engineer. It’s primary my personal documentation of some of my projects and use-cases that apply mostly to some common tasks within the world of a Network Engineer. Furthermore, I like to give you the confidence that you don’t need to be a full time developer to be effective. I encourage everybody to have at least some basic knowledge in this area, because it will save you a lot of time in the long run.

The heavy interest in SDN technologies back in 2015/2016 showed me quite early that automation and programming/scripting is a valuable skill. To learn python and some other topics within the “software world” was one reason, why I started the blog.

During the time while I was writing for the blog (and also some side projects later), I developed some skills in the area of web development (with python, but also HTML/CSS/JavaScript) and the technologies to stage the service on a Server (Vagrant, Ansible) or (more preferable) a Container Infrastructure (Docker). From the Network Engineer perspective, I focus mainly on Campus and Wireless LAN networks (Cisco and other vendors).

I hope that the content on this blog is helpful for you and if you have any feedback or find typos, please drop me an email at henry@codingnetworker.com.

About the author

I’m Henry and I’m a Network Engineer and hobby programmer. Since 2007 I have worked for a large service provider in Germany. During my career I walked through many roles within the network industry: from network implementation to design, from pre-sales to operations. I also hold some certifications, including the Cisco CCNP Routing & Switching, CCDP and some Specialist Certifications. Besides my daily job, I’m a hobby programmer. I learned some programming languages in the past, starting with C/C++ when I was 13 years old. That was one reason, why I decided to start a career within the IT industry.

In 2015 I decided to start this blog to document my learning progress in the area network automation with python and to share some of my personal side project’s. Today, it’s a journal for me to document how I solved certain use-cases using python and other software tools.
