Hi Jason,

Pardon my chiming in. This sounds absolutely fantastic for people like me who 
are wanting to get into networking and telco. I’ve been having trouble for a 
number of years now, too bloody many of you ask me... but I’m thinking I’m 
going to have to try something different.

I don’t know if it’s my living in Brisbane and there’s just not much of it 
around here, or what, but I’d love nothing more than to be able to get my feet 
wet so I can better be employable in the field I’m most passionate about.

I don’t mean to hijack the thread or anything, but if someone could share ideas 
on how newbies like me can get into the field, through volunteering, or work 
experience, or anything like that, I think that’d be quite pertinent to the 
topic at hand plus I think it would help others in my position - somehow I 
don’t feel like I’m the only one! Almost seems like network engineering is 
somewhat of a dying art form, with how integrated everything is getting now. 
But that could just be a skewed perspective of “an outsider looking in”.

Fantastic points you’ve raised, Jason, I’ll be watching this thread very 

Kind regards,

Subject: [AusNOG] Opportunities in Australia to work on Event networks 

Hi Noggers,

While listening to a back episode of the Packet Pushers I noticed one of the 
guests mentioned he volunteered every year for SC (Super Computer Conference) 
with helping building the temporary network and found it a great way to gain 
experience. Do we have any events in Australia that afford the same opportunity 
for experience or are most contracted out if they require a temporary network.
