PPCNE - Python Programming for Cisco Networking Engineers

Overview

Duration: 5 days
This training course is designed to learn from the basics of Python programming to the specific skills and tools needed to manage network devices en masse using programming and reduces implementation time for software-based technologies in a Cisco enterprise.

Python programming to the specific skills and tools needed to manage network devices using programming with hands – on training. Reducing implementation time for software-based technologies in a Cisco.

Objectives

  • Automate configuration of multiple Cisco devices.
  • Use the following DevOps / learning tools to enable efficient use of APIs and data models and effectively create Python scripts:

        o Postman 
        o IDEs for both Windows and Linux 
        o Notepad++ 
        o Sublime 
        o PyCharm 
        o Microsoft Visual Studio 
        o Anaconda 
        o Linux VI Editor 
        o Lint tools for XML and JSON 
        o Visore for Cisco Data Center 
        o PI Inspector for Cisco ACI 
        o YANG Validator
