Understand the basics of software and coding during this session. The first DevNet session provided background on the DevNet community and the advantages network engineers can gain from collaborating with software developers. In order to work effectively with software developers, it is beneficial to understand the basics of coding.
During this session, DevNet will provide an introduction to the basic concepts of Git and Git-based services (e.g. GitHub). The presenter will also conduct a short demo to showcase the fundamentals of coding with Python and JSON.
Future Sessions: More sessions in this series will be added, check back on this blog for more details.
