Tyler Leeds is a network engineer for Automattic. He works as a member of a small team that manages a massive network, responsible for a massive portion of the entire web. He and Rudy Faile, a coworker of Tyler's, community member, and former podcast guest, join us in this episode to dig into the guts of how networking works at a lower level. We discuss both the technical and human aspects of how the Internet comes together, and what that means for software developers.
Tyler was kind enough to provide a practical example of a BGP update (which we discuss in the podcast) in action for us to check out: https://handmade.network/static/media/podcast/hmn/bgp_example.txt
