This Juniper network automation course will teach network engineers how to automate network configuration using Python and Ansible and how to model and document networks using Netbox and Nautobot. Python is the Swiss Army Knife of programming languages — website development, web scraping, data analysis, or day-to-day task automation, Python can be used for anything you can think of. And that includes network automation. Today, Python leads the way as the most popular programming language for software-defined networking. And that has to do with its ease of use and abundance of libraries that can be used for network automation. So why learn Ansible? Ansible is a powerful automation platform. In the world of DevOps, it’s a tool that allows you to do automation and configuration management — all managed in code in YAML Playbooks. And while Ansible allows you do a lot, it is limited in scope compared to Python, which means the amount you need to know when using Ansible is much less than Python. So the learning curve for Ansible is much more shallow, meaning you’ll be up and running with Ansible far sooner than you’ll be up and running with Python. And that’s really important to many network engineers. They don’t always have the time to learn the intricacies of something like Python. But with Ansible, you only need a couple hours before you feel like you’ve stumbled upon a magic wand and can save yourself hours automating repetitive tasks. After finishing the videos in this Juniper Network Automation training, you’ll know how to create playbooks in Ansible that leverage Junos modules, write Python scripts that will automate your network configuration, and create a source of truth using Netbox and Nautobot. With the right experience, network administrators who complete this training will have proven they have what it takes to step into network engineer roles.
