Network Programmability and Automation (O'Reilly)
Thursday, 29 March 2018

Network programming and automation can be used to simplify tasks involved in configuring, managing, and operating network equipment, topologies, services, and connectivity. This practical guide shows network engineers how to use a range of technologies and tools—including Linux, Python, JSON, and XML—to automate their systems through code. Through the course of the book, authors Jason Edelman, Scott Lowe, and Matt Oswalt demonstrate the basic skills and tools you need to make this critical transition.
