Welcome to Python for Network Engineers Series
In this course will be focusing on Automating Data Center Networks using Python.
The approach of this course is to learn Data Center Networking Technologies, then understand how we apply automation and programmability using high end Data Center Network Appliances such as Cisco Nexus 9000, F5 BIG-IP and Kubernetes.
Learn the basics of Python and understand how API works! This course provides you at least 40 python sample scripts designed to automate hundreds of network devices!
The set-up is simple. We have few switches a Linux server where all the python scripts are hosted.
Easiest way to understand Python Network Automation. No need to learn Netmiko, Napalm, Ansible and Paramiko. Automation is all about API!
Lastly, we will also learn how automate complex configuration such as MLAG/VPC and VXLAN.
Some the python scripts used are designed for an extremely large data center environment!

Hi Guys! My name is Dean Armada and I am your Cloud, Data Center and CyberSecurity Instructor.
My goal is to deliver easy to understand, top quality and unique kind of online courses in Udemy. I am in the process of developing integrated courses, something that doesn't only focus on one brand or technology.
I am proud to be one of the few instructors in Udemy who records themselves during the course delivery. Whether I am presenting, whiteboarding or doing lab demonstration, you will always see me. I do this so that I will be more CONNECTED TO YOU.
I have a very diverse background in the field of IT. I was a programmer who became a Linux administrator, who became a network engineer, who became a security specialist, who became a tech manager who became a startup tech founder but training delivery will always be my passion!
If you have any questions about Cloud, Data Center, F5, Cisco or Automation and Orchestration, feel free to send me a message and I would be happy to assist.
I have delivered training classes from Network, Security, Systems, Virtualization, Containerization, Programming, Storage, Servers, Cloud and Automation. I am a certified Cisco and F5 instructor and have traveled more than 30 countries and more than 60 cities since 2011. One of the busiest technical trainer and prior COVID-19, I used to have average of 10 flights / month.
