Get started now!
Hi, I'm Roger Perkin
I've done a lot of Network Automation and I want to help you get started.
I have been a network engineer since 1999 and over that time I have been managing network devices the same way.
Connect to the CLI and type your commands. "Sound familiar?"
However in the last few years things have changed, Network Automation is here and as Network Engineers we need to learn network programmability and Ansible is a great place to start.
Ansible is the open source tool of choice for many Network Engineers today and for good reason, it is easy to get started and comes with 100's of ready made network modules for most of the network vendors.
So why do you need this course?
Now there is already some amazing documentation over on the Ansible website and there are a few Youtube videos out there showing you how to do a few things,
However, you just want the easiest route to learning Ansible and to get started with Network Automation.
Am I right?
This course will take you from zero to running your first playbook in under an hour.
From there I will expand on the capabilities of Ansible and perform different tasks.
We will look at Ansible Tower and how the GUI differs from the command line.
I will cover some basic Git and Github to you can version control your playbooks.
I will explore config templating using Jinja2.
And to finish up we will also look at using Ansible on different types of devices including F5 & Juniper.
I hope you are excited to learn this great new skill and I look forward to seeing you in the course.
This course will take you from zero knowledge of Ansible and Network Automation to having your own Network Automation system up and running using Ansible.
You will learn how to write playbooks and learn YAML and Jinja2
At the end of the course you will have some practical playbooks that you can use on your networks today.
This is just the start, after the course it is up to you to continue your learning and expand on what Ansible can do.
Further courses will expand on different areas, but this course is for you if you are just starting out.
Roger has been in the IT industry for 20 years with the last 17 in Networking.
He is CCIE #50038 in Routing & Switching and is passionate about Network Automation and training the network engineers of the future where terms like Devops, Netops and Infrastructure as Code are becoming common place.
Skills like Python, Linux and Network Automation will be the standard tool set for the network engineers of the future.
If you want to ensure you have the skills to be ready for this big change in the networking industry, Roger's courses are for you.
