Many want to automate their production networks but simply don't know how. In this course, Automating Networks with Python, you will learn foundational knowledge of/gain the ability to overcome this challenge. First, you will learn how to collect information from, and make updates to, network devices using legacy SSH command-line methods. This includes diving into tools like Paramiko, Netmiko, and NAPALM. Next, you will discover how to write custom parsers for more advanced CLI-based automation, to include unit testing with pytest. Finally, you will explore how to use modern APIs and their supporting technologies, including NETCONF, RESTCONF, and YANG. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of automated network management needed to design, implement, and maintain professional-grade infrastructure as code solutions for your business.
