From time to time, we need to update things including hairstyles, wardrobes, and even the music that we listen too. In today’s content-driven world, this is no different. Thus is the case with our most downloaded content, the “ConfD Kick Start Guide.” This guide has been a powerful asset to help new ConfD users understand the full scope of network element programmability enablement and the management plane features of ConfD.
The new version provides a fresh introductory look at ConfD, its uses, and expanded integrations with many of the modern machine-to-machine and human-to-machine management interfaces. As always, this guide provides "food for thought" questions which evaluators should be considering when evaluating ConfD or any other management plane solutions.

We are very excited to release ConfD 7.1, with numerous exciting new features as well as deprecation notices for a few obsolete features. We have posted a blog that highlights a few of the more important additions, changes, and deprecations.
However, it only touches the surface and, as with any release, you should read the CHANGES file to fully understand what is highlighted here as well as to learn about everything which has changed in this new release.
For months now we have written about and discussed interoperability testing and how it validates that your devices are interoperable and meet the standards for network programmability.
The EANTC Multi-Vendor Interoperability Test results have been published as part of a showcase at MPLS+SDN+NFV World Congress in Paris. These tests are a good indication that NETCONF and YANG are becoming more and more accepted and adopted every year. These are certainly exciting times for bringing programmability-based network automation into the modern day.
Looking back on my career and network computing, it has been a lot like watching a pendulum swing back and forth between centralization and decentralization. In the beginning, we had mainframes that we used as a centralized computing source.
