    I've noticed that Cisco professionals tend to enjoy Linux. It must be a command line thing
    Currently working on: Resting

    Deep down, IOS is just a *nix flavor with some tweaks. Then again, so is OS X, ESXi, Android, etc. etc.

    That shell makes for a comfortable place, like Windows folk and the Start button.

    I have seen this the other way around. Linux admins watching me in a router or switch and they say "huh, that looks a lot like BASH". Yes it does, except IOS is much simpler.

    The underwear of most commercial firewalls is a simple redhat clone. If you can get root access you will likely find iptables lurking about. They slap their intelligence (protocol inspection, anti-virus -which is usually a rip-off of clamAV, anti-spam, and monitoring/logging) on top of the *nix and sell it to us for lots of money - on hardware that would cost only a few hundred dollars.

    Exactly. High cost Cisco gear sporting commodity Intel Celerons is my favorite example.

    Yep, and Cisco phone systems which run on IBM X-Servers with 2 GB of RAM and running Linux.

    Probably VCAP-DCA and VCAP-DCD. My CCNA will be up in January 2014, so I guess I'll have to decide whether I want to renew or let it lapse.

    2013... not sure yet.

    I was thinking of CCIE Routing and Switching. If only because I think it's fun. But practically speaking I shoudl probably do RHCSA/RHCE>

    For 2012 I plan on finishing CCENT and going after Security+.

    As for 2013, CCNA is a definite. After that, I need to do some more research and figure out where I want to go from there. Maybe a new job will help guide my decision...

    Completed in 2012: NONE due to: life, new job, on/off studying coupled withno clear direction on what cert to get next

    Yet to complete in 2012: CCENT (hopefully)

    Goals for 2013: CCENT/CCNA, Security+, Linux+

    I am slowly starting to realize that I won't be able to make that next step to "mid-level" with just an entry level cert.

    2013: Hopefully get into WGU so N+,S+,A+,P+ and knock out a huge chunk of wgu courses since I'm only transferring in 7 CU with no prior college experience

    Anything beyond that would be gravy.
    ^^^^^ Best way to sum up my 2012 as well.

    Hey everyone quick question. I plan on passing the CCNA hopefully around March-April of 2013. I was wondering would it be smarter to go right for the CCNP or go for the CCNA:Sec or something along those lines?
    The reason I ask this is because I currently do not have a real networking job (even though I do get some hand on experience occassionally from the networking team). I was thinking that the CCNP wouldnt benefit me much until I have a solid year or two of real-world networking experience.

    I do plan on applying to new jobs when I pass my CCNA.

    I think you should go for the CCNA Security first, it can fill in the security knowledge gap. It's also easier to obtain and looks good on the resume.

    I agree that you should hold off on the CCNP until you have some practical experience.
    When you go the extra mile, there's no traffic.

    I'd recommend CCNA Security so you don't enter under/over-qualified territory.
