Might as well start off the way I do in real life.
I work at a generalist IT company in Missouri, in the VAR/MSP chunk. We have been Cisco/Meraki partners for a while, and we focus heavily on Meraki for our MSP clients.
I was ready to be a CLI jockey for my entire career, then I got introduced to the Meraki Dashboard API. Right now, I function as the Meraki SME at the office, script everything I can for both Meraki and Cisco (using netmiko mostly) equipment, and write a lot of documentation. My current goal is to apply best practices to as many clients as I can, while doing as little manual work as possible.
Experience-wise, I've been working with Meraki equipment as long as I've worked in IT So 3 years now. I've been automating Meraki with Python for about 18 months. Python is my sixth? seventh? programming language, so that helped.
I was actually on the Meraki podcast back in September, talking about the API, with the world's worst allergies. I mentioned a script I was working on, to check Meraki equipment for static vs. dhcp addresses... Then I wrote it.
Fun fact: I crocheted wire sharks? It is bad on your hands. I also enjoy singing punk songs like they're arias, which my partner does not enjoy, and I've spent too much time lately playing Oxygen Not Included.
