The Big Scary World of Network Integration and Automation | Peter Mackenzie | WLPC Prague 2022

As a network engineer what do you think when people mention integration and automation? Do you look for somewhere to hide? Is your world routers, switches and access points not APIs, Python and DevOps?

Well…. it is time to take your head out the sand. As network engineers this is a topic we need to understand and guess what? It is not that scary and it doesn’t need to be difficult, but more importantly it can be a lot of fun.

In this session we will discuss some basic concepts of APIs, look at the tools you can use to make things easier and look at some of the fun things you can do with them.
