Jake Talks Wireless Code Quality- and It’s Worth Hearing

Jake Snyder is a smart guy. He’s got experience, credentials, and is just a well-rounded networking gent no matter what other descriptors you assign him. In this video, Jake spends about a dozen minutes contemplating the current state of code cranked out by WLAN vendors. Give a listen, and see what YOU think.

My own opinion: the more complexity that vendors cram into their code, the more we’re going to deal with bugs. That’s a pretty simple equation. And… the basic notions of reliability and providing access for clients are getting deprioritized for more exciting features that read well in marketing materials.

So- we’re doomed.

Nah- I’m kidding! It’s not that bad.

Except maybe I’m not kidding.
