If you're a network engineer, don't rush out and learn a programming language. To compete in the new world of software-defined networking, it might be more important to start thinking like a programmer.
That was one of the ideas that emerged this week from an Open Networking User Group debate that generated healthy feedback from users in the audience.

|Ellen DeGeneres Celebrates 20 Years Since Coming Out|

Ellen DeGeneres admits revealing her sexuality on TV was the "hardest thing" she's ever done.
The 59-year-old talk show host - who is married to Portia De Rossi - is celebrating the 20th anniversary of her sitcom 'Ellen's famous coming out episode and though she admits publicly declaring her own attraction to women was tough, she doesn't ever regret it.
In an Instagram video, she shared a teaser of her monologue for Friday's (04.28.17) episode of her talk show, in which she fought back tears as she said: "You are here on a very special day. Today we're celebrating the 20th anniversary of the coming out episode of my sitcom.
"It was the hardest thing that I ever had to do in my life and I would not change one moment of it because it led me to be exactly where I am today standing in front of all of you."
And a clip from the opening moments of the show saw Ellen said: "I'm Ellen and I'm gay. 20 years ago I said that -- it was a much bigger deal then."
When Ellen and her character on the show came out on April 30, 1997, it was done in scenes taped in front of a live audience, and the blonde star has now explained why the iconic moment was called 'The Puppy Episode'.
She joked: "It was called 'The Puppy Episode' because we wanted to keep it a secret until it aired and because 'Ellen Throws Her Career Away' seemed too on the nose."
She then added: "Actually, the real reason we called it 'The Puppy Episode' is because when the writers told the executives that they wanted me to come out, because my character needed to be in a relationship after four years of not being in a relationship, someone at the studio said, 'Well, get her a puppy. She's not coming out.' "
In the episode, Laura Dern played openly gay Susan, who enlightened Ellen to her own sexual identity, and the actress was thankful to be a part of the key moment.
Speaking on Friday's show, she said: "It was so profound and I feel so blessed that I got to be there and witness that."
Oprah Winfrey is another guest on the show, and the preview showed her praising Ellen for her bravery.
She said: "You wouldn't have been able to open hearts and touch hearts and change people's minds and make a difference in the world had you not had the courage to do that."
|Paris Jackson Warns Viewers Off 13 Reasons Why|

Paris Jackson has warned '13 Reasons Why' may leave viewers in a "dark place".
The 'Star' actress - who has previously attempted suicide "multiple times" - thinks Netflix's controversial program has done an "amazing" job of warning bullies their actions can have serious consequences, but admitted she is also concerned it could have a triggering effect on vulnerable people.
Paris shared a post warning away audiences from the show, which argued it was "incredibly irresponsibly handled and puts people in very real danger" and advised impressionable youngsters to stay away from the series.
She wrote: "This is really important to spread towards people that are struggling with depression or anxiety, self-harm, and or suicidal thoughts.
"This show was an amazing way to get the message across to bullies that they need to stop doing what they are doing.
"It really did a good job of showing how impactful words and actions can be to other human beings. You can't just do or say things to people without thinking about how it will affect them.
"But at the same time, it is also an extremely triggering thing to watch.
"Please only watch this show with caution and keep in mind that it may put you in a dark place. If you are struggling please don't watch it. If you think you can handle it, please by all means check it out.(sic)"
Paris - who is the daughter of the late Michael Jackson - previously admitted she had made a number of suicide attempts in the past.
The 19-year-old star said: "It was just self-hatred. Low self-esteem, thinking that I couldn't do anything right, not thinking I was worthy of living anymore."
'13 Reasons Why', which hit Netflix on March 31, is based on the 2007 novel 'Thirteen Reasons Why' by Jay Asher and revolves around Hannah, who kills herself following a series of heartbreaking failures brought on by a number of students within her school in California.
After Hannah's death, those individuals who contributed to her death received a box of tapes in which the troubled teen describes in detail how their actions led to her ending her life.
