Advanced Network Automation with Cisco and Python Online Training

This intermediate Advanced Network Automation with Cisco and Python prepares network engineers to incorporate Nornir's inventory abstraction and concurrent task execution into your network CI/CD automation environment.

Technologies around network automation and continuous integration and delivery/deployment continue to improve, and make it all the more possible to build, test and merge code seamlessly. But at the same time, many of the tools and languages that are made to monitor, maintain and, ultimately, release code into the wild are so complicated and nuanced that learning the tools themselves is a harder task than just implementing and maintaining CI/CD practices in the first place.

After finishing this Advanced Network Automation with Cisco and Python training, you'll know how to incorporate Nornir's inventory abstraction and concurrent task execution into your network CI/CD automation environment.

For supervisors, this Cisco training can be used to onboard new network engineers, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Cisco reference resource.

Advanced Network Automation with Cisco and Python: What You Need to Know

This Advanced Network Automation with Cisco and Python training covers Nornir topics including:

  • Advanced filtering
  • Handling connections to devices
  • Inspecting complex structures
  • Using ipdb with Nornir
  • Transforming inventory data

Who Should Take Advanced Network Automation with Cisco and Python Training?

This Advanced Network Automation with Cisco and Python training is considered professional-level Cisco training, which means it was designed for network engineers. This Nornir skills course is designed for network engineers with three to five years of experience with network automation and CI/CD tools and practices.

New or aspiring network engineers. If you're just starting out as a network engineer, watch out: advanced network automation and CI/CD automation is — frankly — advanced. But if you know your organization is interested in pursuing CI/CD, or is struggling with implementing network automation tools, you could boost your career by investing early in understanding how Cisco and Nornir work together to make CI/CD automation a reality.

Experienced network engineers. The obvious benefits of Nornir's backwards compatibility and small codebase will appeal to network engineers with several years of experience. If you've been thinking about network automation for some time, you'll probably appreciate what Nornir does to improve code quality: linting, code style, static type checking, and unit testing. Nornir and Cisco have advanced CI/CD tools and resources, you can learn about them with this training.

    MicroNugget: What is Cisco PPDIOO?

    In this video, Anthony Sequeira covers the PPDIOO network lifecycle model and its advantages. Cisco has used this lifecycle model to describe networks for a long time. It stands for Prepare, Plan, Design, Implement, Operate, and Optimize. Because this is a circular model, the last step invariably leads back to the first, beginning the cycle again.
