I wanted to take an opportunity to make sure everyone is aware of NRE Labs and some of the outstanding work Matt Oswalt has done, improving an already fantastic tool.
Those who have not visited or used NRE Labs in the past:
NRE Labs is an open-source educational project focused on making network automation and the emerging discipline of network reliability engineering (NRE) accessible for everyone. The site hosts browser-based exercises focused on learning the skills, tools, and processes that not only teach you about automation but also provide a hands-on experience in a sandbox created just for you. There are several lessons just waiting for you to explore and get started on your automation journey.
Check out the intro video:

Perhaps you would have liked to submit content in the past but felt it was just a bit outside your comfort zone. Well, good news, it just got a whole lot easier. You are no longer to required to build a local setup or fuss with Vagrant and Kubernetes clusters. Using a simple pull request, your preview environment is generated in minutes and ready for your content. The preview works much like the labs' consumption side today, allowing you to focus on what matters, showing off your contributions.
