Who is Network to Code
Jason is a highly respected engineer with a CCIE and well over 12 years experience in the networking trenches. For the past 3 years he has focused his efforts on network automation and programming, and has been a leader in developing multiple tools to help us simpletons interact with networking hardware via programming tools. If you don’t know who Jason is then I highly suggest you follow him, as this dude is leading the charge in how we will do our jobs in the coming years.
With Jason’s passion to help others grow in network automation, Network to Code was born and now the company is teaching multiple classes as year across the globe, doing workshops, and providing services to clients helping them adopt automation technologies.
I will note, its best to have a basic understanding of python and general programming knowledge coming into the class. Without it you may get lost within the first couple days and make it difficult to progress with topics as they are layered on-top of each other.
After two days of focused python training I was ready to dig into the fun stuff! Ansible has always been intriguing to me but I have not had the time to dig in. Jason did not let me down and covered everything needed to dive right into Ansible. Dude it’s a fun tool and Jason does a great job of guiding the class down the network engineers path for Ansible.
Ansible is an amazing tool and can be leveraged in so many ways. I encourage everyone to start learning and playing with Ansible. It can make your life so much better!
GitHub is a brief topic which is incorporated into the last few days of class. Jason covers its basics and how it is used as a versioning tool. GitHub can also be leveraged from the social aspect. So instead of sharing cat pictures on Facebook you can share scripts you are working on with others.
Build a GitHub account and start by following Jason. See what he has built and contributed and branch out from there. Amazing resource!
Whether you think SDN will rule all or DevOps will take yer jerbs automation has been around forever and it has always been a solid tool to simplify the day to day grind. And honestly, it's only going to grow bigger!
This was a great course and worth every second and the investment. Jason is amazing in this space and did a fantastic job leading the class.
