As you have seen lately on the blog I’ve been fiddling around in Python. One of the best resources out there to learn Python for Network Engineers is the free e-mail course by Kirk Byers. Kirk is a CCIE emeritus with extensive knowledge and experience of Python. He offers both free and paid courses over at his site. Kirk is very active in the community and the guy behind Netmiko and the IOS driver in NAPALM. He’s also an active member of the Network to Code Slack group. I recommend that you check out Kirk’s stuff!

I plan to go through all of his exercices and write about them on my blog. That will help me in my learning and hopefully it can help you as well. Kirk publishes the answers to the exercises at Github but my plan is to be a bit more verbose and explain the code. I plan to write my posts here and also put up my answers on Github to get some exposure to using Git. My code will likely not be elegant, the most effective or good looking but hopefully we can learn from each other as I put these posts up. I don’t know how often these posts will go out but the first one should be up within the next few days. If you break your network using my code, that’s your problem… 😉

My answers will be posted to this Github repository.

    Nice! I’m getting to it too.

    It would be nice if you could include the ToC here for the already created and upcoming posts.

    So this one will have link to all of the parts related to that course, instead of searching for each one by one.

      I’ll try to add these as they get posted. I don’t know how many parts there will be yet but I’ll add them as they get posted.

        Cool, thanks.

        What I basically meant is to make that threat main, remove all the rest from the list and them here as sort of ToC and add future ones too.

        Will look a bit more orginized imho,

          Yeah. There are some reasons to keep them as separate posts but I’ll make some kind of index for it. Thanks!
