  • Network Engineers
  • Software Developers
  • Students interested in learning about programming

Course Objectives

  • Understand and describe basic and advanced Python terminologies
  • Identify Python script errors and correct
  • Query and reconfigure networking devices using Python scripts
  • Introduction to RESTful API utilizing JSON and XML
  • Understand and execute key python programming constructs to execute AWS projects
  • Utilize AWS APIs and SDKs to automate configurations of various AWS services
  • Iterate data that contains JSON and XML for the use of configuring and managing AWS Infrastructure

Agenda

1 - Traditional Infrastructure Topology vs. AWS
  • This lesson will outline the traditional on premise, three-tier model and the difficulties of scaling this method vs. leveraging the limitless, elastic cloud solution of Amazon Web Services.
  • Describe the traditional three-tier model (Access, Distribution and Core Layers)
  • Understand the overhead necessary to support traditional on premise infrastructure
  • Describe the benefits of utilizing Amazon Web Services to deploy an infrastructure
2 - AWS Infrastructure Overview
  • This lesson will identify the various components of the VPC (Virtual Private Cloud). This is a prerequisite to understanding how to successfully deploy a cloud infrastructure within AWS.
  • Understand AWS Regions and Availability Zones
  • Correlate the components of a VPC and on premise infrastructure
  • Describe the different components of a VPC
3 - Creating the VPC via Management Console
  • This lesson will focus on the build-out of an AWS VPC using the Management Console. This is a prerequisite to utilizing REST, AWS CLI and Python to deploy a VPC within AWS.
  • Navigate the VPC Service within the AWS Management Console
  • Construct a VPC via AWS Management Console
  • Understand the steps and dependencies of each component of a VPC
4 - Introduction to Web Services Protocols
  • This lesson will detail the basic Web Services Protocols used throughout the course. The RESTful API and Management Information Model are introduced as an extension of the common CLI over SSH method for accessing data.
  • Describe the common Web Services Protocols and Transport methods
  • Describe the Management Information Tree view of accessing objects
  • Describe object naming conventions
  • Describe what an encoded document is in relation to plain text.
5 - XML and JSON
  • This lesson will detail the properties and formatting of an encoded documents as a means of accessing displaying data. This is a prerequisite to understanding how information is manipulated or extracted from an appliance that offers a web based service.
  • Describe basic XML concepts
  • Describe the format of an XML document
  • Describe basic JSON concepts
  • Describe the format of a JSON document
6 - Data Models
  • This lesson introduces XML as the common data model upon which many platforms utilize today.
  • Describe the generic parts of an XML Schema
  • Describe the flow of how an XML Schema is used
7 - Modifying the Schema
  • This lesson introduces the various ways to modify and read objects that are contained within a schema.
  • Use AWS CLI to configure and retrieve data from a schema
  • Use POSTMAN to post and retrieve data from a schema
  • Use Python with a native API to an appliance
8 - Data Extraction and Manipulation
  • This lesson teaches the use of taking extracted formatted documents and parsing them for data. Cloud Engineers gain the benefit of being able to provide data scientists with the data necessary to use the data in a meaningful way.
  • Load and parse a JSON Document
  • Load and Parse an XML Document
9 - Basic Constructs
  • This lesson describes foundational terminology within Python. Upon completing this lesson, the student will be able to explain many of the basic constructs, including their role within the programming language.
  • Describe and execute strings
  • Describe and execute printing
  • Describe and execute variables
  • Describe and execute built in methods
  • Describe and execute input from users
  • Describe Boolean
10 - Advanced Constructs
  • This lesson describes more of the advanced foundational terminology within Python. Upon completing this lesson, the student will be able to explain many of the advanced constructs, including their role within the programming language.
  • Describe and execute redundant scripts
  • Describe and execute functions
  • Describe and execute classes
11 - Scaling Python
  • This lesson will begin to apply the Python programming language to execute basic networking tasks. Upon completing this lesson, the student will be able to apply the constructs in the previous lessons to execute reading and writing to file tasks.
  • Describe and execute Reading and Writing to Spreadsheets
  • Describe Reading and Writing to Databases
  • Describe and execute substituting strings and integers
  • Describe and execute while loops
  • Describe and execute for loops and lists
  • Describe and execute slicing
  • Updating and edit a list
  • Error checking
