Listen: Cisco, Engineer, Developer discussed on Talk Python To Me
"Python to build interesting things like you maybe don't even know what a function is, but you could still do some pretty interesting stuff in straight down. You know, you don't need to care about code raised or whatever. Object-oriented under the that you can completely ignore objects into you. You realize that there's value in hell, half my code still north objects. It seems like he's days. Yeah, it's quite an interesting point. So speaking about these days, what are you doing day today? You're developer evangelists at Cisco. Is that right? Correct. Advanced. So I'm a never program newly evangelists with Cisco inside of our desert organizations. So Dennis, the developer in Ableman program for Cisco and so is where people that are looking for our API documentation SDK's sample code and sandboxes resources. That's all of that valuable and my team evangelists are like, you'd find any of the developer Newton aransas is we go out of the health people better make use of and understand what's possible tools. Cisco has a huge portfolio products for networking to security in collaboration. A my focus really, really fully in the network on a nation reprogramming qualities face. So there's tons of. Dizzy in. There's there's tons of workout. They're helping all of these enterprises in network engineers inside of the enterprises figure out what automation means and how they can start to automate their deployments in what is it takes the skill emit changes in these types of things. Resources. We Bill wills, events that we hold in discussions gives to, you might be going out of visiting like a group of network engineers who maybe haven't done a lot of program, ability automation of networks and help bring them along or maybe help them design how that applies to their infrastructure or something like that. Xactly. Yeah, there's, there's usually I firmly into two cases workers through most days. These days organizations are nice. They need network automation and so they're going to their network team since they don't need to figure this out what resources are available. And so I, I go into some of those organizations that spend a couple of days helping them in in kind of leading introduction to program ability classes. And so just last week actually spent entire day while customers we had about twenty engineers in the room and we were going through basics of life. So what is life on script to how do you great variable? What our libraries? What libraries are interesting for the network engineer, how you parse data that comes back because that's a big part of of dealing with clear tax versus Jason and all other, what is on? How do you profit, what is x. amount with a Yarmuth file. All of that goes through. And that's a big part of this. This bringing python into the engineering field network engineers have been in IT for for years in many of them took outside classes way back when and they moved on similar cases ended didn't love job a whole lot. So when in game programming is not fun out of. Packets across the network suit. What we're doing now is trying to help remind them kind of some of these skills there. They start to knock the cobwebs off some of the fundamental Graham stuff they have for maybe twenty thirty years ago when they went to school and then start to add these new elements that are there XML exist or some of these guys when they went through in Yannis in so showing them the value showing on a use it how to connect to a device through python using one of these API Zor available in what wise that better than doing that they're giving today, because that's a big part of the discussion often is showing that there is there is value in making this Jerry, right? Because a lot of improbably didn't decide to be programmers, maybe that's a good way to segue into like, what is the background of typical network engineer?."
