Welcome to Cloud Packet! I’m Shakib Shaygan, a full-time blogger and network engineer who has been designing and building networks for over 6 years now. I recently completed the CCIE lab to earn CCIE #46559 (Routing and Switching & Data Center), besides that I have some knowledge of open source and other networking product such as Juniper & Brocade.
As for a bit of background, I’ve worked as a normal IT Support, help desk, and currently as a network researcher, focusing on SDN for Telco. Currently I’m looking forward to doing some research, learning, and writing on a variety of networking-oriented topics. Look for a series of posts related to the CCIE Data Center experience as well as any other interesting topic which I encounter.
One of the reasons that I start this blog was to have a base that I can share my notes, as usually I write down everything that I learn because we are human and we will forget most of them for sure.
Ebbinghaus Forgetting curve
Information is lost over time when there is no attempt to retain it. That's almost same condition with every human which follow simple rules, the more you repeat this information you will remember them for a longer time. Not talking about some smart guinness with high strength of memory who can read and remember faster than average people, we all have this issue of fading memory, especially when it comes to forgetting your professional knowledge that could be even more harmful. Forgetting Curve saying you should really repeat/study this information 3 to 4 times for remembering them longer.

My Cheat Sheet / Notes
![Excel Note] (/content/images/2016/04/Excel-Note.png)
After sharing those notes with friends I get lots of positive feedback, and made me think to extend my work in public internet for bigger community rather than a group of people. So I remember that one of the ways that I use to remember stuff was to look at cheat sheet or short notes, and of course the most famous cheat sheet of all the time is Packetlife.net Which to be honest, I get some idea how to do my own blog, so thank you very much Jeremy Stretch and I hope you don't mind about this.
But unfortunately Jeremy material is only for general topics, another inspiration website to look is
cheatography.net , which also focusing on general stuff rather than being more specific.
Need to also mention that my work might look like the others, but it's definitely not copied from them, in fact, I just use some general idea and build my own structure and method for it.
I think that's all for the first blog post and thanks to whoever is following my blog.
