Cisco updates DevNet certification to include software developers

Cisco Live — Cisco has updated its DevNet certification program to bring software developers and IT professionals under one roof. By putting software developers and IT professionals in one community, Cisco is looking to enable new best practices while pioneering new automation processes. At Cisco Live, Cisco is also opening the doors on a new community-based developer center to accelerate adoption and success with network automation.

With intent-based networking, virtualization and software-defined networking, IT professionals need to move beyond manual, time intensive tasks and into the world where application and cloud developers work together. On that note, Cisco’s new community-based developer center, which is called Cisco DevNet Automation Exchange, hosts shared code repositories of use cases for network automation. And Cisco’s community of developers, networking professionals, partners and customers can actively contribute software to increase the repository for network automation code.
