If you are like me, you probably started a career in Computer Science or ICT without actually knowing the area of specialization to choose. Later on, you realized there are so many fields and areas of specialization such as web design, programming, software development, graphics, system analysis, database administration, networking; the list goes on. And if you had a natural knack for mathematics, it wouldn’t have been difficult for to realize the seamless flow of logic and mathematical formulae application that constitute programming; and suddenly it you have had your eureka moment. You have found something you can actually do and enjoy and get paid for it too. Effortlessly, usually to the surprise of your peers, you start to grasp the various concepts that improve your skill and logic implementation as a programmer. You become quickly acquainted with programming jargons and concepts like selection, iteration, abstraction, polymorphism, inheritance, reflection, etc; and can implement them  in  any programming language you want.  Life seems all cozy and easy. Even the sleepless nights spent writing and correcting codes adds to the fun. Eventually when people talk about networking or other areas of networking, you are like “dorr! I have my programming. Don’t need those!”. Well, if you ever felt that way about networking and other hardware related courses, then you are just like me. But a few years and some Cisco certifications later, I have come to realize how terribly wrong I was.  This is why I have written this article to help you avoid the mistakes I made before it is too late and tell you five (5) reasons why you should learn networking even as a programmer.


So whether you are planning a career in computer networking, or you are a programmer looking to expand your career opportunities, you should attend the Ashpot Cisco Network Training BootCamp coming this November for just N5000.  Computer networks have become part of our everyday lives - they form the backbone of modern information systems. As networks expand, there is a growing need for individuals who understand their practical benefits, as well as how to implement and manage them. This training focuses on the technical aspects of network design, network installation and configuration, systems administration, maintenance and management, as well as how they can be applied in modern technologies. By undergoing this training, you will develop the required skills to implement and manage computer network infrastructures. Emphasis is placed on the development of strong technical skills in combination with the management of networks, implemented through design, and managing the needs of clients and businesses.
