In my previous blog I mentioned how SDN has helped me at starting of career, now I would like to present the approach which I usually follow to find solution or help regarding problem which I am facing.
If I require a solution which I am not aware, I will search my question (or key words of my question) in global search .I normally get lot of hits in wiki, forums, I will check forums first to understand if someone had already faced that particular issue if Yes what is the solution proposed by our SDN members, here itself mostly I can find a solution or an idea on which I can develop a solution.
Considering I got an idea from forums and it might require a new development (Code change), I will again search this time in Wiki section with inputs which I got from forums. In WIKI we can find code samples for code change by taking reference to that particular piece of code which is already posted I will start my development. I won’t copy the code present in Code sample but I rather treat it as a reference to start with. If a config change is required I check the path mentioned and will perform settings required.
With the above mentioned approach more than 90% of my issues are solved. Based on my analysis I can say that before posting a question in SDN we have to check if a similar question is already present or not ,if not we can go ahead and post. I also suggest that if we find a solution by our self and not from SDN we can post that particular solution under question raised by us which can help our community members if they face similar issue in future.
This is the reason why number of questions posted by me are less in SDN, In my next blog I will mention roadblocks which I faced in my career and how SDN helped me to over come them…..
