(This is a repeat of the tutorial that was presented at NANOG 64 in San Francisco) Do you find yourself wanting to write a robot but not quite sure where to start? Ever find yourself typing the same set of commands on the CLI of silly network devices all day long? Well, you’re in luck! This class is aimed at the absolute beginner to coding and in it we’ll walk through all the foundations needed to write a few scripts to collect data from network devices to help in analyzing / responding to various error conditions. This class will be fully immersive using a mix of both teaching and hands-on lab activities. The focus is to empower you with the knowledge and practice to begin building your very own “FBAR” – Facebook’s system for automated repair of network and server faults with code. We’ll cover Python basics, show you how to use software to act as a human on your network devices, and go all in on regular expressions (the secret to automating the unknown!). Please join us for fun, learning, and laughter :-D!
