Hi, I'm Roger Perkin
I've done a lot of Network Automation Here's now I can help you.
I have been a network engineer since 1999 and over that time I have not seen the way network engineers manage devices change very much at all
However in the last few years things have changed, Network Automation is being talked about more and more.
Ansible, the open source tool of choice for many Network Engineers today has gained a massive amount of network modules since being purchased by RedHat in October 2015. This will only keep growing as more and more people start to use Ansible.
This is where I come in.
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, I believe that 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 we will expand on the capabilities of Ansible and perform different tasks.
Finally, we will look at Ansible Tower and how the GUI differs from the command line
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 on the inside
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 17 in Networking.
He is CCIE #50038 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.
Skills like Python, Linux and Network Automation will be the standard toolset 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.
