Last week I had the opportunity to attend Arista ACE 2.1 training down at the HQ offices in Santa Clara. I was very fortunate to be in a class that was lead by Gary Donahue, the author of Arista Warrior. He is an excellent presenter and a extremely personable individual. If you ever have a chance to be in a class of his, sign up for it.
The training was very hands on, with labs that covered Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP), Multi-Chassis LAG (MLAG), Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN), and my favorite topic, the wonderful EAPI. Coming from a Cisco CCNA/CCNP background, these topics helped fill knowledge gaps on the Arista family of hardware.
At the end of the class, Gary was signing copies of his book so I left with a author signed copy of Arista Warrior. Not a bad addition to the growing collection of O’Reilly books around the house.
