If big changes begin inside-out and not have-do-be but be-do-have, then goals of automation require us to focus on our core being and behaviors instead of products, tools and programmability/APIs.

To engineer of network simplicity, it’s time to lose the title of network admin, operator or architect and embrace a new identity as a Network Reliability Engineer.

Like sysadmins graduated from technicians to technologists as SREs, the NRE title stakes a new culture and zenith for engineering network invincibility. Like SREs describe their practices as DevOps, network reliability engineering embraces DevNetOps behaviors.

Through real-life examples, we examine the shift to an NRE culture and DevNetOps behaviors that embody the role: networks as code, timelines as pipelines, microservice and immutable infrastructure, pipeline CD, chaos engineering, and continuous measurement and response.
