LT: Death of the Network Engineer

With all this talk of Network Automation and Orchestration around, will this mean the end of the Network Engineer as we know it?
Will the Network Engineer be reduced to a racking and stacking guy? Will they be torn away from their beloved CLI and have to use GUI’s?
Will they turn into programmers, sys admins or even worse sales guys?

I hope to explore if there is any hope for the Network Engineer to survive the Virtualization and Automation ERA of the Network.

Or are they destined for the same fate as the dinosaurs.
