Python for Network Engineers - Part 1

In this blog article we’re going to look at how to get started learning Python as a Network Engineer.

We’ll look at some great resources to use to learn the basics, some links to source network focused resources and steer in the right direction for modules and packages which a network engineer will find useful.

This will also be the first blog in a series.  In subsequent posts we are going to walk through using Python and APIs to configure various devices such as Junos, Cisco Nexus, F5, Arista and Palo Alto.
