[CONTEST CLOSED] Happy New Year! What are your Networking Resolutions?

Community Manager

UPDATE: This contest has ended, thank you to everyone who shared their 2020 Network Resolutions! Congratulations to our randomly selected winners: @JohnGeorge@SteveKatsman, and @bluemoon.   


In last year’s Network Resolutions contest, the community resolved (among many things) to get better at writing Pythonic scripts for Dashboard API, complete CMNA training, start using the templating feature in Dashboard, and, perhaps most importantly, make more time for the Meraki Community!


Well, as the saying goes, “New year, new IT networking resolutions!”


Tell us your 2020 New Year’s Network Resolutions. Three lucky winners will receive some fun Meraki swag!

Pass CMSS when its released, learn more Python, develop lots of killer Meraki apps by leveraging the API even more, obtain an entry level DevNet Cert, quadruple our Meraki sales number, land at least two national projects, think big! 🙂

Getting noticed
I am already using the API to help manage my inventory. I block devices that are not assigned to a user from accessing my Meraki WiFi though a custom web application. I would like to take automation to another level and configure switch ports automatically via the API too. And I need cable management in most of my closets.
