Thanks to my new pal Darby Weaver, I’m attending a Narbik bootcamp next week in Chicago! Darby was kind enough to let me use his spot as he will not be able to make it. My company is even willing to give me the time off (as training, so no loss of PTO, woot) and pay for travel, hotel, and rental car. Needless to say, I’m very excited. I’m hoping to do some type of daily digest post each night, but I don’t know if I’ll have the energy or motivation after 12 hour days of Cisco study.

Here are the details on the class:


This program offers Narbik’s Routing and Switching as well as Cisco 360 CCIE R&S Advanced Workshop
