About your Instructor

Hi! My name is Mike, and teaching has been my passion for 10+ years. My background is primarily in Network, Virtualization, and Automation. I've spent time working for large organizations, both as a customer, a professional services engineer, and an architect. I also have experience working for several large OEMs. I firmly believe in learning by doing, so what you will not find in my courses is a lot of slides! I like to spend as much time as possible in the GUI/CLI as I believe that's where the real learning happens!
