New! Learn how to configure and manage Cisco network devices using Python programming. No two networks are the same! Learn to automate any network with a Python and Ansible skillset. Course can be taught across all major (and most minor) network vendors. Course demonstrations can be adapted to best-fit the customer’s network to ensure all lessons have maximum relevance.

This 4-day instructor-led course teaches participants to blend Python skillsets with Ansible through the lens of automating networks. Automation techniques for the most popular vendor (incl. Cisco, Juniper, Arista) will be subjects of study, however, students may request examples from vendors within their own environments. Topics begin with a focus on automating networks with Python; this skill set is then folded into a broadening understanding of automating with Ansible. Students will have programmatic experience automating enterprise class networks by the conclusion of this course (includes writing custom Ansible modules with Python). This course is a combination of lecture, demonstration and hands-on labs. Class is appropriate for those interested in automation, specifically network automation, and those looking to marry a Python and Ansible skillset. Note: Students are invited to share their own relevant Python and Ansible scripts with the instructor to ensure class subjects are as relevant as possible. All notes and scripts will be made available to students by the end of each day via a cloud-share or email. Lab time will be given reinforce that day’s topics and demonstrations.

Target Audience
Network Administrators and administrators interested in Automation. Ansible and/or Python developers, and individuals interested in devops, specifically for networking.
