Python for network engineers

The book covers Python basics with examples and tasks built around networking topics.

On the one hand, this book is basic enough to be mastered by anyone, and on the other hand, covers all the main topics that will allow you to further grow on your own. This book is not intended to be an in-depth look at Python. The purpose of this book is to explain the basics of Python in clear language and provide an understanding of the necessary tools for practical use. Everything in the book is focused on network equipment and interaction with it. This immediately makes it possible to use the knowledge gained in the daily work of network engineers. All examples are shown using Cisco equipment as an example, but of course they apply to any other equipment.

Note

This book covers Python 3.7.

The book was written by Natasha Samoylenko. Translated from Russian by Aidar Khairullin.
