Lessons

The DEVASC - Developing Applications and Automating Workflows Using Cisco Core Platforms v1.0 course helps you prepare for the Cisco DevNet Associate certification and for associate level network automation engineer roles. You will learn how to implement basic network applications using Cisco platforms as a base, and how to implement automation workflows across network, security, collaboration, and computing infrastructure. The course gives you hands-on experience solving real world problems using Cisco Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and modern development tools.

This course helps you prepare to take the 200-901 DevNet Associate (DEVASC) exam. By passing this exam, you earn Cisco Certified DevNet Associate certification.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

After taking this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe the importance of APIs and use of version control tools in modern software development
  • Describe common processes and practices used in software development
  • Describe options for organizing and constructing modular software
  • Describe HTTP concepts and how they apply to network-based APIs
  • Apply Representational State Transfer (REST) concepts to integration with HTTP-based APIs
  • Describe Cisco platforms and their capabilities
  • Describe programmability features of different Cisco platforms
  • Describe basic networking concepts and interpret simple network topology
  • Describe interaction of applications with the network and tools used for troubleshooting issues
  • Apply concepts of model-driven programmability to automate common tasks with Python scripts
  • Identify common application deployment models and components in the development pipeline
  • Describe common security concerns and types of tests, and utilize containerization for local development
  • Utilize tools to automate infrastructure through scripting and model-driven programmability

I would never take another course that starts at 11AM and goes to 9PM again. The way the course was laid out really took away from the capturing of what was presented as it was 5-6 hours of watching a screen before getting to the actual labs. There has to be a better way to lay out this particular course. In my previous course, the lectures were broken up by labs which worked out fantastic and kept you engaged in the course. There were days when in order to actually complete the labs, would go over the 9PM day end time frame. Was able to get the primary labs done, but if you want to get all the content completed, you cannot complete it in the window of this course, you will need to come back on your own time.

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.
