Building Great Software at Arista
... How do sixty engineers compete with thousands?

At Arista, we're building the software to run the world's biggest data center networks. Routing protocols, bridging protocols, management protocols, and massive hardware management drivers are at the core of what we build. Unlike how this has been done before, we're doing it with C++, Python, Attribute-Oriented Programming, Model-based testing, and sophisticated distributed systems technology. Come learn how Arista leverages modern software development techniques and open-source software to run faster than our competition.
