The Course Name: NPWP-Network Programmability 2.0 with Python v3.0


The Duration:5 Days


The Overview:


This course is designed for non-programmers who already are familiar with networking solutions at professional level and above for teaching them programming knowledge for using at Network Solutions. The technology we teach in this course suits many vendors including Cisco as well.


What You Will Learn:


In the first two days we teach our participants python programming and then they get to know basics of network programming and best practical scenarios for how to interact with different Layer 4 protocols, TCP and UDP as well as major layer 7 protocols like HTTP and SSH. With our new development; we mostly focus on API programming and how to use these skills to develop applications to interact with cisco APIs on NX9k and APIC-EM as well.
