Webinar details

This webinar takes a user from zero to learned hero using real world experience and demonstratable technology. Using off the shelf tools from well known companies along with DIY using Python, NETCONF and YANG background knowledge and real world how-to steps will be delivered over a two hour webinar. By the end the audience will understand the purpose of YANG, how NETCONF facilitates delivery of information built on the YANG model to network element and will have real world experience of both of these technologies in a multi-vendor environment.

The NETCONF Deep Dive update session explores the NETCONF protocol details and several vendor implementations.

Target Audience

This webinar is targeted towards network and devops engineers who understand the fundamentals of network engineering, network design and operation using traditional toolsets. Knowledge of Python is not mandatory however some simple background reading on the basics would be beneficial.

Delivery Format

The NETCONF and YANG is a 4-hour technical presentation available as a set of downloadable videos that you can buy in our online store or get as part of network automation workshop or Building Network Automation Solutions online course. We can also organize an on-site SDN, OpenFlow, NFV and SDDC or Hands-On Network Automation workshop, where the topics of this presentation are combined with in-depth discussion of other data center, network automation, OpenFlow or SDN topics that apply to your network.

About the webinar

Not coherent, skips from topic to topic. Or maybe this is just how NETCONF is. A pile of disorganized hacks.
