Python is an easy to learn, powerful programming language with efficient high-level data structures and a simple but effective approach to object-oriented programming. Python’s elegant syntax and dynamic typing, together with its interpreted nature, make it an ideal language for scripting and rapid application development in many areas on most platforms.
This is an easy to follow, practical approach course, designed to guide you in implementing real-world
automation in your enterprise using python. Initially you will be you will start with a deep-dive into Python software development basics, then you'll move on to write scripts to automate file system operations and file contents processing on your local host. Learn network automation & administration tasks with Python Fabric to automate the execution of web server with simple python programs. Moving forward you will also you will be creating users on multiple servers to manage users and then check the health of the Enterprise and then you will be performing automation tasks on the cloud infrastructure with python. Finally, you will leverage Python programming to automate server configuration and administration tasks.
Contents and Overview
This training program includes 2 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.
The first course, Python for Everyday Life start with a deep-dive into Python software development basics, then move on to write scripts to automate file system operations and file contents processing on your local host, then you will learn how to interact with web-based services such as websites and APIs in order to robotize the cool things that we do everyday - such as tweeting, posting to social networks, reading RSS feeds, etc. - moreover you will practice how to set up a web-based services yourself in the form of web applications and in the end you will learn how to analyze and visualize datasets in order to extract knowledge. By the end of this course you will have learned how to proficiently write structured Python code in a wide range of applications – from one-liner scripts to complex web applications – aiming at the automation of lots of common everyday life tasks.
The second course, Enterprise Automation with Python will start by introducing the modules and the tools we will be using and how to set up a python environment to perform automation tasks and to deal with file editors and IDE like Pycharm. The course will cover network automation tasks and administration tasks with Python Fabric to automate the execution of web server with simple python programs. Moving ahead, you will learn to create database servers with python and backup them. Also, you will be creating users on multiple servers to manage users and then check the health of the Enterprise and then you will be performing automation tasks on the cloud infrastructure with python. The course will make the most of Python libraries and modules to automate your infrastructure. Leverage Python programming to automate server configuration and administration tasks. By the end of the course, you will be able to efficiently develop your python skills making it an alternate automation tool from the major automation frameworks.The use cases in this course will help you to track the processes with high utilization on all servers and create web server via python code. So, now need not depend on Network Automation Tools like a puppet, Ansible, and chef and grab this course to make your daily work easy with automation and python modules which will help you to deliver the service more faster than before.
