About this course:

You will figure out in this course, how to reduce the number of manual interactions with the network and enhance the utilization of contents and automation apparatuses to drive down operational inefficiencies. Within these objectives, you will examine programmability fundamentals of the network, for example, using Python and Linux and normal automation protocols, for example, REST and NETCONF. Understand how the protocols identify with YANG information models and also SDN controller southbound and northbound APIs. Also, you will figure out how to utilize gadget APIs on different platforms of Cisco. Begin using automation tools, for example, Puppet and Ansible.
