Workshop: Model-Driven Programmability
Automate Device Configuration Using APIs
You’ve learned networking skills in courses like CCNA. Now you can put your skills into practice using the hottest programmable networking devices. In this 8-hour workshop, you’ll hone skills in managing and configuring network devices using their APIs and automating management tasks using Python scripts with a Cisco software virtual router — just like the professionals! Plus, you’ll get to join and participate in several professional software developer communities-of-practice such as Cisco DevNet, GitHub, and Stack Overflow. To participate, you’ll need knowledge from CCNA: Introduction to Networks or equivalent networking skills and basic programming knowledge as found in PCAP: Programming Essentials in Python.
You’ll Learn These Core Skills:
- Use Python with RESTCONF and NETCONF APIs to retrieve and update the device’s configuration.
- Describe a different approach to software-defined networking (SDN), including central application policy control.
- Use software concepts and tools relevant to network programmability including Python scripting, Git, JSON, Postman, and APIs.
- Join developer professional communities such as Cisco DevNet, GitHub, and Stack Overflow.
