Course Content

This course addresses the evolving role of network engineers towards more programmability, automation and orchestration, enabling them to leverage the powerful level of abstraction provided by controller based architectures to create real added value. Candidates will learn how to minimize the amount of manual interactions with the network, and increase the use of scripts and automation tools to drive down operational inefficiencies. The course will review network programmability fundamentals including Linux and Python, common automation protocols such as NETCONF and REST and how they relate to YANG data models. The course will enable candidates to understand SDN controllers including APIC, APIC-EM and OSC, as well as how to use device-level APIs such as Cisco NX-OS, IOS-XE, IOS-XR and ASA OS. They will be introduced to DevOps and Agile software development methodologies, and get started on using automation tools such as Ansible, Chef and Puppet
