I work for a Cisco partner based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Founded way back in 1998, just one year after I was born!
Meraki was one of my first experiences in networking and has helped my education tremendously. I currently work with the MX, MS and the MR families.
I love shrimp.
I'm a director and developer at Panoramic Data Limited, an independent software vendor based in the UK. We create custom, closed-source software, but open source all our system libraries so the whole community can benefit.
We authored the Meraki.Api nuget package, which uses the Dashboard API and have used it projects, including one that provisioned 6000+ Meraki devices for a large retailer. We would love to help you on YOUR project. Do contact me if we can help you with Meraki automation!

I work for two private schools, a boys and girls school, that share administration that are both founded in 1813.
I deployed one of the first generations of Meraki in Massachusetts but have not worked with it for several years now.
I also coach baseball.
We just deployed an MX250 with help from our local vendor Groff Networks in Troy NY.

@david_n_m_bond , I couldn't encourage you to add dotenv support for safer handling of API keys could I?
The Powershell example is down near the bottom of the first post here:
All pull requests gratefully received!
I'm not sure what security this adds though, as this is a non-standard configuration mechanism and would add an unnecessary dependency to the nuget package. The private strings are still loaded into application memory and passed in cleartext in your example. In C#, it would be better to achieve what you need using IOptions<Configuration> using dependency injection, I would have thought. In PowerShell, you can still use devenv and constructor injection.
Hi @david_n_m_bond .
>'m not sure what security this adds though, as this is a non-standard configuration mechanism and would add an unnecessary dependency to the nuget package.
It adds no dependencies. There are no additional modules to include. The "dotenv" approach is a well accepted - standard - for credential passing. It is the third factor for the "12 factor app" doctrine.
The "IOptions<Configuration>" is a solution that only fits this one particular environment. The dotenv solution is cross platform cross environment solution (hence its wide acceptance).
You can go from using powershell to Python to node.js, from one app to another, with the config (particularly the API keys) only needing to be configured once.

A fun fact about yourself
One time I was out on a bender (for non british people that means out getting drunk) when I much later that evening had to go to the toilet. On my way there I saw someone coming towards me and I got out of the way, so did that other chap so I thought "Thank you" and wanted to move on. The guy decided to move on at the same time as me which was not something that I thought was amusing, so a bit irritated now I again though I'd let him pass and again he moved aside at the same time as me. Slightly annoyed (and not very sober) I now wanted to pass him and yet again he moved in front of me. I got really annoyed now and looked up and realised it was merely my reflection that I had seen in a mirror. Other people in the bar had a good laugh at the whole situation and I was left quite red faced, but I did see the funny side in it.

I have been working for the Los Rios Community College District fro 18 years as a Network Admin/Analyst. I started when the first switched network was installed. Xylan 10Mb half duplex to the desktop with a 10 Mb backbone. We switched to Alcatel then to Cisco. Now we are moving forward with our first deployment of Meraki.

Hello all, I'm a data processing professional that has seen a large number of changes, improvements and innovations to the industry as a whole. If you don't know what a punch card is or have only seen one in a museum that's OK.
I am new to Cisco Meraki, but I already love the concept.
Fun fact - I've retired from three companies. Developing web applications and configuring networks is a close second to collecting retirement checks.
👋Oh! I remember punch cards in high school! Welcome in. I too am new to Meraki and love the concept as well. I plan to investigate further at Cisco Live in Vegas this year! See ya there?
