Networking pros are a prolific bunch. Not only do they work tirelessly to build and troubleshoot networks, they also like to share their knowledge, experience -- and opinions. They're definitely not shy to express themselves, and many of them like to write. There are a lot of networking blogs where you can read practitioners' thoughts on technology trends like SDN and DevOps, read about their experiences in the trenches, and get helpful tips. But where do you start?

We've put together some recommendations for you. The list includes some of the most high-profile networking bloggers in the industry, including Greg Ferro, Ivan Pepelnjak, and Ethan Banks. Other big names include Lee Badman, Jason Edelman, Terry Slattery, and Ed Horley.

You're in luck, because many of these bloggers will also be speaking at Interop New York, which will be held Sept. 29 to Oct. 3. Check out their expert blogs and make plans to head to New York this fall!

Re: Some others to consider as well
Thanks for providing those additions Mike. We could probably do many more of these lists!

Some others to consider as well
Some great blogs missing here, and it looks like some of the vendor blogs (both branded and unbranded) didn't make the list. It's hard to consider any list complete without a few:

- VMWare's unbranded blog Network Heresy, with posts penned by Martin Casado, Bruce Davie, and others should make most top 10 lists: http://networkheresy.com/

- Matt Oswalt does a nice job dealing with advanced topics, especially around SDN at the Keeping It Classless: http://keepingitclassless.net/

- Tom Nolle is one of the more prolific authors, especially around the NFV space: http://blog.cimicorp.com/

- And the Plexxi blog (that I do a lot of writing for, full disclosure) covers an awful lot of ground (technical topics on Mon/Wed/Thu, non-technical on Tue/Fri): http://www.plexxi.com/blog/

Impressive list
Marcia, thank you for the list. I was only familiar with a couple of the blogs you mentioned.

I forgot about Howfunky.com, which I read a few times. I like the way Ed Horley follows all the IPv6 implementation and the hardware related to it.

I'm going to visit the other blogs and look around, I'm sure it will be worth the time.
