Description

  • Examining Network Management and Operations
  • Exploring Software Development Methodologies
  • Using Python for Network Automation
  • Describing NetDevOps: DevOps for Networking
  • Managing Automation Development Environments
  • Introducing HTTP Network APIs
  • Reviewing Data Formats and Data Encoding
  • Using Python Requests to Automate HTTP-Based APIs
  • Exploring YANG
  • Using YANG Tools
  • Automating Model-Driven APIs with Python
  • Introducing Ansible for Network Automation
  • Templating Configurations with Jinja2

Before taking this course, you should have the following knowledge and skills:

  • Routing and switching including Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), and basic configuration features such as interfaces, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), and static routes
  • Fundamentals of Python data structures and programming constructs such as loops, conditionals, and classes, or the equivalent of 3–6 months of experience writing Python scripts
  • Basic Linux commands for navigating the file system and executing scripts
  • Knowledge of working with text editors

After taking this course, you should be able to:

  • Articulate the role network automation and programmability play in the context of end-to-end network management and operations
  • Define and differentiate between waterfall and agile software development methodologies
  • Interpret and troubleshoot Python scripts with fundamental programming constructs built for network automation use cases
  • Describe how DevOps principles, tools, and pipelines can be applied to network operations
  • Understand the role of network automation development environments and associated technologies such as Python virtual environments, Vagrant, and Docker
  • Understand and construct HTTP-based API calls to network devices
  • Articulate the differences among and common use cases for XML, JSON, YAML, and protobuf
  • Construct and interpret Python scripts using the Python requests module to automate devices that have HTTP-based APIs
  • Understand the role YANG plays in network automation
  • Understand that a number of tools exist to simplify working with YANG models
  • Describe the functionality of RESTCONF and NETCONF and the differences between them
  • Construct Ansible playbooks to configure network devices and retrieve operational state data from them
  • Build Jinja2 templates and YAML data structures to generate desired state configurations
