How to create a Cisco VXLAN and Cisco WebOS app from scratch
CNET Tech editor David S. Goyer has been covering networking for a long time.
He’s the author of Networking in 10 Easy Steps: How to Create a Networking Software Engineer Degree, a guide for anyone who wants to learn how to code in a way that makes networking a fun, fun, and rewarding career.
Now, he’s sharing a book that helps you do just that.
Networking in 10 Steps is available for pre-order for $30.
That includes the first edition, which you can buy at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and IndieBound.
If you’ve never pre-ordered anything, you should.
(For those of you who have, pre-ordering it now will give you a discount on your book.)
The book focuses on the three main elements of networking: routers, switches, and networks.
You’ll learn how routers connect to the Internet, how switches connect to other devices, and how networks work together to create an Internet of Things network.
If you’ve ever wondered what a Cisco switch looks like, you’ll be glad to know that it has an app for that.
(You can get an idea of what an Ethernet switch looks really like by watching this video.)
Networking In 10 Steps, which is available as a PDF for $9.99, is a fun read, but it’s also a bit daunting.
You might think you have all the tools to create network applications, but there’s a ton of manual work to learn.
It’s best if you start with some basics and then work your way up.
