by Nick Russo

If you've ever been frustrated trying to work with new product APIs or sort through outdated code examples, this course is for you. You'll focus on modern Cisco products while sprinkling in some advanced HTTP-related API client techniques.

What you'll learn

Even skilled developers have to overcome learning barriers when interacting with new product APIs. In this course, Managing Cisco Products Using Advanced API-based Methods, you will gain the ability to write client-side Python code to perform common operations on a variety of Cisco products. First, you will learn some of the most common HTTP optimizations, such as traversing pages, complying with rate limits, and handling API timeouts/errors. Next, you will dig into a wide variety of Cisco products to perform an equally diverse set of tasks. Some examples include consuming location data from Cisco Meraki, collecting client health from DNA Center, managing Firepower network objects, building an interactive Webex Teams Chat Bot, and many more. Finally, you will explore peripheral topics like HTTP cache optimization and Docker container hosting on Cisco networking products. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Cisco API interaction needed to maximize value from the Cisco equipment deployed in your workplace.
