When you are planning, creating, and managing networks, some of the tasks can be repetitive and time consuming. Scripting allows you to automate these tasks to allow for reproducibility, scaling to larger systems, and collaborating with others use versioning. In this series, we will see how to utilize Python to make your life as a networking professional a little easier. See you there.
You're watching ITPro TV.
>> Welcome everyone and I'm excited
because I'm gonna tell you a little bit
about Python for networking professionals.
I'm Justin Dennison and
you may be asking yourself, hey,
what gives you the right to tell me about
Python for networking professionals.
Well I've been doing Python for
about seven years now off and on.
I've been applying it to
a multitude of different realms,
IoT devices, web applications,
kind of solving everyday life
problems like moving files.
And that's what really excites
me about this course, right?
So what's in it for you?
Well, you're gonna learn a little
bit about the Python foundations.
The assumption is you've had
some dabbling in Python,
you have some programming experience.
But I wanna make sure that you
understand foundations, and
then we're going to apply it to
a networking kind of realm of problems and
we're not going to go super deep.
But ultimately it's gonna get you
started give you some tools they can use
to build upon.
Now, as far as goals and structure,
my goal is to make sure you have
these little bit of error handling.
Hey, what's going on with file IO?
How do I use standard library,
how do I do use external packages?
And then we're gonna move
into more applied structures,
like building see allies that
do some very simple tasks for
us building some prompt
That will again, automate some of those
simple tasks take the thinking out of them
as well as the errors that may occur.
And ultimately, this gives you
the ability to scale outward.
And I think that's really why
I'm excited is because through
programming we can reach out and
touch way more machines interact
with way more devices than we
would in a manual capacity.
And with that power, it makes us
more efficient, less error prone and
all that good stuff.
Now you may be asking yourself,
how do I get a certification from this?
Not a certification course.
Ultimately what we're trying to do is get
you up to snuff get you excited started
and hitting the ground running with
some Python in your networking career.
Now, that sounds like
something you're excited for.
We'll see you around.
