Jathan McCollum

Principal Software Engineer

I am a Principal Software Engineer for AOL's Network Architecture & Automation team. I have been helping to run AOL's network for over 12 years from every aspect to network security, architecture, performance and automation.

I am the lead developer for Trigger, a network engineering toolkit written in Python, which we open sourced in April of 2012. Trigger was designed to increase the speed and efficiency of managing network configuration while reducing human error, and is the bread and butter of how we manage the large-scale network at AOL.
