Learn Network Automation with GNS3 and Ansible.
Do you want to program networks using Ansible, but not sure where to start? Well, this course will show you how you can start programming Cisco networks within 30 minutes.
This course was created for network engineers. There are too many other Ansible courses out there that try to make network engineers server administrators. They concentrate on server administration, installation of software packages and other server admin tasks.
This course is different.
This course is practical. I won't talk about programming in abstract terms and make you wait before you can start automating networks. I will show you how you can quickly and easily start network programming by using GNS3, Cisco IOS and Ansible.
You will see demonstrations of the configuration of both Cisco routers and switches in GNS3. For example, how to configure multiple VLANs on a multiple switches, or how to configure OSPF on a router and more much more.
Learn how you can use Ansible to troubleshoot networks! Use a single Ansible command to retrieve mac address table information from multiple switches in seconds. Then pipe the output to a regular expression to filter down to a single MAC address.You will never troubleshoot networks the same way again!
This course shows you practical examples of using Ansible to programmatically configure Cisco network devices rather then just talking about it.
The days of configuring Cisco networks only with the command line interface (CLI) are drawing to a close. You need to add network programmability using Ansible to your skill set.
Learn how to automate networks using:
Don't reinvent the wheel. Use the tools available to you to quickly and easily automate your networks.
"This is a must have course for any networking engineer looking to get into programming, as every single lecture in the course is focused on getting the most out of python for networking - not software development! Another plus about this course is that David keeps it really interesting throughout by constantly introducing new technologies and methods to improve your coding skills. This course really is different from the rest of the python courses out there, and you really learn something new every lecture, and for that reason, this course is worth every penny!"
- Ibrahim Jaffery
"An excellent and easy to follow introduction to the world of network automation with clear and concise examples, intuitive and informative. An invaluable resource for network engineers getting started in the field of Python network programming and automation. The best money I have spent on training in a long time. The instructor is clear and precise in his delivery, a complete pro. I look forward to future additions to this course."
- Ken Murphy, Senior Network Engineer
