Cool Links of the week
Maps of Science
These are not new... but they are new to me. The Domain of Science YouTube channel has a collection of maps for different areas of study. For example, there's a Map of Computer Science or the Map of Quantum Physics (which is a recent fascination of mine). They give a beautifully simple and well-explained introduction to the different foundations, core principals and challenges for each area of study. Check out the full playlist here.
This one is really cool. Container Lab is a tool that makes it easy to stand up network lab environments. I haven't dug into this one but it appears to tie together containers and virtual machines for a lot of the most popular network platforms/vendors and makes it easy to automatically configure them to match a topology specification. It really does look useful and saves a lot of time... And if you're doing any interaction with network devices it will give you an easy way to make reproducible environments for testing, validation and development.
