Jason Edelman, CCIE 15394 & VCDX-NV 167, is a born and bred network engineer from the great state of New Jersey. He was the typical “lover of the CLI” or “router jockey.” At some point several years ago, he made the decision to focus more on software, development practices, and how they are converging with network engineering. Jason currently runs a boutique consulting firm, Network to Code, helping vendors and end users take advantage of new tools and technologies to reduce their operational inefficiencies. Jason has a Bachelor’s of Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology in NJ and still resides locally in the NYC Metro Area. Jason also writes regularly on his personal blog at jedelman.com and can be found on Twitter at @jedelman8.
