Mastering Python Networking - Third Edition

By: Eric Chou

Overview of this book

Networks in your infrastructure set the foundation for how your application can be deployed, maintained, and serviced. Python is the ideal language for network engineers to explore tools that were previously available to systems engineers and application developers. In Mastering Python Networking, Third edition, you’ll embark on a Python-based journey to transition from traditional network engineers to network developers ready for the next-generation of networks. This new edition is completely revised and updated to work with Python 3. In addition to new chapters on network data analysis with ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana, and Beats) and Azure Cloud Networking, it includes updates on using newer libraries such as pyATS and Nornir, as well as Ansible 2.8. Each chapter is updated with the latest libraries with working examples to ensure compatibility and understanding of the concepts. Starting with a basic overview of Python, the book teaches you how it can interact with both legacy and API-enabled network devices. You will learn to leverage high-level Python packages and frameworks to perform network automation tasks, monitoring, management, and enhanced network security followed by Azure and AWS Cloud networking. Finally, you will use Jenkins for continuous integration as well as testing tools to verify your network.

Collaborating with Git

Git is an awesome collaboration technology, and GitHub is an incredibly effective way to develop projects together. GitHub provides a place for anyone in the world with internet access to share their thoughts and code for free. We know how to use Git and some of the basic collaboration steps using GitHub, but how do we join and contribute to a project?

Sure, we would like to give back to these open source projects that have given us so much, but how do we get started?

In this section, we'll look at some of the things to know about software development collaboration using Git and GitHub:

  • Start small: One of the most important things to understand is the role we can play within a team. We might be awesome at network engineering but mediocre Python developers. There are plenty of things we can do that don't involve being a highly skilled developer. Don't be afraid to start small; documentation and testing are two good ways to get your...
