Although there is plenty of excellent JET documentation on juniper.net and even within this TechWiki (links provided below), sometimes videos do the job of getting the message across. Our message is that this is doable. In a recent Juniper gathering, we polled the audience and indeed found that people were already using JET. Of course, Juniper employees have additional incentives to learn and use the new automation features within recent software releases.
