Developing Applications Using Cisco Core Platforms and APIs (DEVCOR) v1.0

Course Overview

The Developing Applications Using Cisco Core Platforms and APIs (DEVCOR) v1.0 course helps you prepare for Cisco DevNet Professional certification and for professional-level network automation engineer roles. You will learn how to implement network applications using Cisco® platforms as a base, from initial software design to diverse system integration, as well as testing and deployment automation. The course gives you hands-on experience solving real world problems using Cisco Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and modern development tools.

Course Objectives

After taking this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe the architectural traits and patterns that improve application maintainability
  • Describe the architectural traits and patterns that improve application serviceability
  • Identify steps to design and build a ChatOps application
  • Implement robust Representational State Transfer (REST) API integrations with network error handling, pagination, and error flow control
  • Describe the necessary steps for securing user and system data in applications
  • Describe the necessary steps for securing applications
  • Identify common tasks in automated application release process
  • Describe best practices for application deployment
  • Describe methodologies for designing distributed systems
  • Describe the concepts of infrastructure configuration management and device automation
  • Utilize Yet Another Next Generation (YANG) data models to describe network configurations and telemetry
  • Compare various relational and nonrelational database types and how to select the appropriate type based on requirements

Course Prequisites

  • There are no formal prerequisites for Cisco Certified DevNet Associate certification, but you should make sure to have a good understanding of the exam topics before taking the exam.

    Before taking this course, you should have:

    • Knowledge of program design and coding with focus on Python
    • Familiarity with Ethernet, TCP/IP, and Internet-related networking
    • Understand the utilization of APIs
    • Understanding of software development and design methodologies
    • Hands-on experience with a programming language (specifically Python)

    Here are Cisco learning resources that can help you prepare:

    • Developing Applications and Automating Workflows Using Cisco Core Platforms (DEVASC)
    • Explore the DevNet Certification area for specific topics and labs related to this course and certification: https://developer.cisco.com/certification/

Target Audience

This course is designed for anyone who performs or seeks to perform a developer role and has one or more years of hands-on experience developing and maintaining applications that are built on top of Cisco platforms.

This course covers specialized material about designing, developing, and debugging applications using Cisco APIs and platforms, and managing and deploying applications on Cisco infrastructure. To fully benefit from this course, you should have three to five years of experience designing and implementing applications that are built on top of Cisco platforms.

The course is appropriate for:

  • Network engineers expanding their skill-base to include software and automation
  • Developers expanding expertise in automation and DevOps
  • Solution architects moving to the Cisco ecosystem
  • Infrastructure developers designing hardened production environments

The job roles best suited to the material in this course are:

  • Senior network automation engineer
  • Senior software developer
  • Senior system integration programmer

Additional job roles that could find this course useful are:

  • Senior infrastructure architect
  • Senior network designer
  • Senior test development engineer

This class includes lecture sections and self-study sections. In instructor-led classes, lectures are delivered in real-time, either in person or via video conferencing. In e-learning courses, the lectures are on recorded videos. In both versions, you will need to review self-study sections on your own before taking the certification exam.
