Welcome to the course, " Certificate in Python Networking" where you are going to learn network automation based on Python 3. This course is practical and real world based. It is a comprehensive course and the knowledge here is compact and easy to understand. So let's get started.

In this course you will get a introduction to quick start to guide to network automation which includes:

  • GNS3 Lab Setup and IDEs
  • Quick Start 2: Telnet Script creation
  • Telnet to a switch and create VLANs
  • Loops
  • Python Style Guide
  • Configure switch VLANs using loops
  • Create a multiple switch network
  • Open a file of switch IP addresses
  • Configure multiple switches with a loop
  • Loops within loops
  • Backup Network Device Configurations

You will learn about Netmiko and NAPALM and BGP. You can also use NAPALM device configuration audit and changes. Examples of iteration: Netmiko scripts like:

  • Basic Script
  • Open a file of commands
  • Configure multiple devices using a file of devices
  • Remove passwords from script
  • Except (Error) Handling
  • Determine device types and run specific device type
  • Iterate device type script

You will be finishing this course with Netmiko scaling and Python theory.

You will just require Basic Networking Knowledge (CCNA Level) and GNS3.

This course is for Network Engineers,

Network Architects, network programmer, programming enthusiasts, students pursuing computer science or anyone wanting to learn how to apply Python programming to network automation.

From this course, you can get lifetime access to lectures covering all aspects of python, from the foundations to advanced concepts, guidance on common pitfalls and best practices including how to make your code very professional, database interactions, and more. You will also learn system administrator with Python.

This course will give you a great foundation of your knowledge in depth which will help for your future career opportunities.
