In what direction to develop the future network engineer with the advent of SDN\OpenFlow?
Hey, guys! This year I finish University and already working 3 years in the state account "system administrator" (Anitem.....the admin from the toners in the printer to the network,AD,proxy, routers, VPN,..... ). I think begin to develop in the direction of "Network engineer", but do not really understand where to start. In what direction to develop the future network engineer with the advent of SDN\OpenFlow? I understand the toaster is already a similar question, but I think in the coming years, the network will be programmable and will need broader skills compared to the CCNA level, CCNP... such as python, java.... or ... God forgive me C++.... 0_o

The same as all.
Routing and switching is not going anywhere, at least not tomorrow and not the day after. The successful launch of SDN world on an industrial scale so there, and therefore no tests and evaluation levels of accessibility of the constructed networks. If you're waiting for the revolution, then take a look at an example of IPv6 - v4 buried for about 20 years, and things are there. In our country is still alive by such monsters as dialup and docsis.
My personal attitude to SDN it well in data Centers. There the excavators do not go, always at hand, the DCA and staff, junctions with other networks with your TU are almost there.
