Course Description:


Requirements

  • You should have a great desire to learn network programming and do it in a hands-on fashion, without having to watch countless lectures filled with slides and theory
  • You should already be familiar with networking concepts like: SSH, Telnet, ACLs (Access Control Lists), VMs (Virtual Machines)
  • You should already be familiar with Python syntax: functions, if, for, while, string and file operations etc. If you have no experience whatsoever in Python, then I encourage you to also check out my "Python Network Programming - Build 7 Apps" course, which teaches Python from scratch and then dives into using it on network devices, by building some great network apps.
  • I will provide a fully configured virtual machine (Ubuntu 15.10, improved version of the VM in Part 1 of the course) with all the necessary software (Python Modules, Network Tools, dependencies etc.). This way you can save time and start programming network devices as soon as possible
  • For teaching network programming concepts and tools on vendors like Cisco (IOS), Juniper (JunOS and ScreenOS), HP (ProCurve OS) and Avaya (ERS OS), I will use the Ubuntu 15.10 VM and physical devices in my lab, since these vendors do not provide virtualized environments for emulating their router/switch operating systems
  • For teaching network programming concepts and tools on other vendors, like Cisco (IOS XE and IOS XR) and Arista (vEOS), I will use virtual machines that they provide on their official websites and I will guide you through properly downloading, installing and setting them up on your own computer, into VirtualBox
  • For running the Ubuntu 15.10 Virtual Machine I provide, dedicating 2 GB of RAM will be more than enough. For running the Arista vEOS VM, you should allocate another 1 GB of RAM, throughout the Arista section of the course. For emulating Cisco IOS XE and IOS XR, you will need 2+ GB additional RAM memory.
  • I am going to use only free software throughout the course: VirtualBox, Linux, free VMs etc.

Are you a network professional who wants to start automating network tasks and manage network devices from various vendors?

Are you looking to become a better network engineer and start learning network programming?

Or maybe you're seeking a raise or even a career change?

This course covers many networking vendors and network operating systems:

  • Cisco IOS
  • Cisco IOS XE
  • Cisco IOS XR
  • Juniper JunOS
  • Juniper (Netscreen) ScreenOS
  • Arista EOS
  • HP ProCurve OS
  • Avaya ERS OS

Save Time and Money by Writing Your Own Python Programs to Automate Daily Network Tasks. Grow Your Networking Career With Network Programming Skills!

Bonus, You Might Even Get a Raise or a Better Job with These New Skills!

This Python Network Programming course is aimed at network professionals having little or no experience in network automation and a great desire to use Python and a lot of very smart Python modules to program their network devices and tasks. This hands-on Python Network Programming training walks you through lots of scenarios, networking vendors and useful tools to help you become the network engineer of 2017.

Well, let me tell you what's this course all about:

  • Learning to use amazing Python libraries and tools to manage network devices easily and without writing too much code.
  • Connecting remotely to network devices and read/extract/display/store command output, using interactive Python scripts, on: Cisco IOS, Cisco IOS XE, Cisco IOS XR, Juniper JunOS, Juniper (Netscreen) ScreenOS, Arista EOS, HP ProCurve OS and Avaya ERS OS.
  • Configuring (one or more) network devices remotely, using interactive Python scripts, either by specifying the commands at the prompt OR asking the script to read them from one or more text files, on: Cisco IOS, Cisco IOS XE, Cisco IOS XR, Juniper JunOS, Juniper (Netscreen) ScreenOS, Arista EOS, HP ProCurve OS and Avaya ERS OS.
  • Executing configuration commands on multiple network devices from multiple vendors simultaneously.
  • Working with a device inventory in XML/JSON/CSV format and network metadata, while easily counting your registered network devices, getting device information by IP address, searching and listing device information, checking IP reachability and SSH availability and much more, using a simple but efficient tool in the Python interpreter or Linux shell.
  • Managing network device credentials in a centralized, encrypted file.
  • Managing access lists and converting access lists from one format to another using a very efficient tool (Example: Converting a Cisco IOS ACL to a Juniper JunOS ACL with a single command).
  • Automatically executing commands upon device login, right from the Linux shell.
  • Getting device interface information fast, right from the Linux shell and saving the information to local storage.
  • Working with Python and SNMP and easily performing SNMP GET, SET, SET multiple OIDs, WALK, GET-NEXT, GET-BULK operations on Cisco, Juniper, Arista and HP network devices, using only a few lines of code.
  • Parsing locally stored Cisco, Juniper, Arista and HP configuration files and extracting various pieces of information, using a very straightforward Python module.
  • Managing device configuration changes using a script that regularly saves the configuration files from your network devices to the local system, compares them with previous file versions, builds a report with all the differences and either stores the report locally or emails the report to the network administrator’s email address(es).
  • Performing various small network tests and operations using the Python interpreter

---

Equipped with full working scripts (in .py and .txt formats), amazing virtual machines and command references, you will be able to work alongside me on each lecture and each application. I will provide an optimized Ubuntu virtual machine with all the Python modules already installed and also the full code for each application, so you can save time and start coding and testing on the spot.

Important prerequisites before you enroll:

  • You should already be familiar with networking concepts like: SSH, Telnet, ACLs (Access Control Lists), SNMP, VMs (Virtual Machines).
  • You should already be familiar with Python syntax: functions, if, for, while, string and file operations etc. If you have no experience whatsoever in Python, then I encourage you to also check out my "Python Network Programming - Part 1: Build 7 Python Apps" course, which teaches Python from scratch and then dives into using it on network devices, by building some great network apps.
  • For running the Ubuntu 15.10 Virtual Machine I provide, dedicating 2 GB of RAM will be more than enough. For running the Arista vEOS VM, you should allocate another 1 GB of RAM, throughout the Arista section of the course. For emulating Cisco IOS XE and IOS XR, you will need 2+ GB additional RAM memory.
  • You won't have to buy anything else. I am going to use only free software throughout the course: VirtualBox, Linux, free VMs etc.
