[Week 3 - Session 3B] Cisco Network Programmability and Automation Partial Approval - $50.00

Discover the power of network programmability/automation using Cisco technologies. We will explore developer environments and tools such as Cisco CML, Microsoft Visual Studio Code and Hashicorp Vagrant and continue with basic Python programming concepts. Next, we explore REST APIs, what are they/how to interact and build solutions on top of them and look at Postman to craft our own REST API calls, environments, and collections. We explore Cisco DNA Center REST API, Webex Teams API and NX-API REST and use Python code to interact with these APIs and learn model driven programmability and concepts such as YANG, NETCONF and RESTCONF to create Python code to configure devices using these interfaces. Lastly, we will explore real life solutions built on top of Cisco APIs, such as a vulnerability reporting software using Cisco PSIRT and Cisco DNA Center REST API, Cisco ACI integration with the smartsheet.com SaaS offering and using a GitLab based CI/CD pipeline for network management.
