  • Is Your ASA Actually Doing What You Expect? Apr 2 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Nick Russo, Technical Leader, Cisco Systems
    The core concepts surrounding DevOps and infrastructure-as-code have permeated into the network automation over the past several years. Some of you have probably employed these techniques to automate your firewall policy configurations in production. Often times, the administrator will poke holes in their firewalls to enable critical applications to function, but how often do we explicitly test the effectiveness of our rulesets? To address this gap, I've written a Python-based tool using Nornir and Netmiko that can rapidly test distributed Cisco ASA deployments for policy compliance. This session explores how the tools work in-depth.

    Stuart Clark, Developer Advocate, Cisco DevNet
    Learn how to apply modern agile methods and tools to the deployment of Cisco SD-WAN topologies. Take a step towards NetDevOps by using Ansible and VIRL to build test environments, create infrastructure-as-code, and automate Day 0, Day 1 and Day 2 configurations.
  • Demystifying Cisco Orchestrators for Infrastructure as Code Mar 5 2020 9:00 pm UTC 49 mins
    Tony Dubiel, DevOps/Automation Lead for GES, Cisco Systems
    By automating the software development lifecycle (code, test, to production) developers and operators (DevOps) are becoming more agile, reducing costs, and delivering a superb customer experience to their customers. Cisco Orchestration solutions extend the benefits of automation to the entire stack by treating each layer of the underlying infrastructure as Code (IaC). Orchestrators reduce the complexity of programmability, operational state, and visibility. In this session, we decode the differences between domain-specific workflow automation versus cross-domain orchestration. As there are many layers in the ‘stack’, achieving a goal of ‘Automate everything’ requires the right tool for the right use case. To that end, we will cover Cisco Cloud Center Suite (Workload Manager and Action Orchestrator), UCS Director, Intersight, and Network Services Orchestrator (NSO). A brief demo will showcase Open Source and Cisco Orchestration tools working hand-in-hand.

  • Watch out SNMP! gRPC is here: Model-Driven Telemetry in the Enterprise Recorded: Feb 6 2020 32 mins
    Jeremy Cohoe, Technical Marketing Engineer, Cisco
    We know the challenges of SNMP with it's UDP transport, limited filtering and encoding options, and the tax to the device CPU and memory resources when multiple tools are polling. Now that gRPC Dial-Out model-driven telemetry is here there are options for migrating to the newer TCP based solution that is supported by YANG data models. These data models make finding specific data points or KPI's easy - the days of analyzing MIB's and OIDs are over.
  • Streamlining Management of L3 firewall rules in Cisco Meraki Networks Recorded: Jan 30 2020 45 mins
    Gerardo Chaves, Virtual Consultant Systems Engineer, Cisco Systems
    Using the Meraki web based portal it is easy to administer all aspects of your network in a centralized fashion, but sometimes we are asked to perform some very specific changes on all networks in an organization during the transition to cloud based security that can end up taking a long time. In this webinar you will learn how a simple python script that leverages the Meraki Dashboard API can greatly improve the time it takes to “manually” add new MX L3 rules into all the applicable devices in all Networks in an organization.
  • Automating Enterprise Meraki SD-WAN Deployments with Python and REST APIs Recorded: Jan 21 2020 49 mins
    Matthew DeNapoli, Developer Advocate, Cisco DevNet
    Most familiar with Meraki know about its usefulness in building enterprise level networks, some have even taken the step of automating those deployments through Meraki’s robust APIs and code. What users may not be as knowledgeable about is Meraki’s capability to move beyond the individual site and support the WAN. In this session, the building blocks of the automating the network will be expanded to include multiple secure sites allowing organizations to range office to office and even into the home workspace.
  • Drag and Drop Programming with Meraki and Node-RED Recorded: Jan 14 2020 58 mins
    Cory Guynn, Solutions Architect | API Product Management, Cisco Meraki
    Whether you’re an expert developer or in the process of refreshing your skills - we’re always looking for ways to make programming with Meraki APIs easier. Join us in this quick session to learn how to use Node-RED: a tool for drag and drop programming with the Meraki Dashboard API!

    Node-RED allows you to easily and intuitively create workflows while filling in all of the boilerplate code around those actions for you. In this session we’ll demonstrate how to use this tool to take the work out of programming with the Meraki Dashboard API and point you to sample, pre-made flows to get started.
  • Programming in Python: An Updated SDK for the Meraki Dashboard API Recorded: Jan 8 2020 45 mins
    Shiyue Cheng, Solutions Architect, Meraki Cloud Platform
    The popularity of Python cannot be exaggerated - it is, by far, the top programming language used by developers working with the Meraki Dashboard API. To make programming with Python even easier, Meraki has recently released an updated Python SDK (Software Development Kit) for the Meraki Dashboard API, including support for all API endpoints, automatic logging, automatic retries on rate limit errors, automatic pagination, custom settings, and simulation mode.

    Join us in this session to learn how to use the Python SDK to make Dashboard API calls, handle errors and exceptions, easily access and export logs for troubleshooting, and collect meaningful data with just a few lines of code!

    For those looking to automate configuration or monitoring with the Meraki Dashboard API - this session is for you. No experience in Meraki, programming, or Python is necessary - this session will be valuable to both experienced programmers interested in what’s new with this updated SDK, and those curious about what is possible with Meraki APIs.

  • Meraki APIs for Beginners Recorded: Oct 29 2019 46 mins
    Melissa Alas, Product Marketing Manager - Cloud & Platform, Cisco Meraki
    “The Meraki Cloud Platform” - what is it? It used to be all about the Meraki cloud dashboard and the radical idea that cloud-managed IT would revolutionize network management (it did!).

    Today, the Meraki Cloud Platform is evolving to not only provide a feature-rich, easy-to-use cloud dashboard, but to also allow customers to leverage and extend the experiences, services, and data of the platform in the form of open APIs.

    Whether you’re considering moving to Meraki, just pulled the trigger, or have been a Meraki customer or partner for awhile - understanding the basics of the Meraki APIs will help you make informed decisions about your upcoming deployment, opportunities to further automate your workflows, product integrations, and potential for applications built on top of Meraki technologies.

    Join us in this session to understand the fundamentals of APIs (no development experience necessary!) and learn what’s possible, what others are doing, and how to get started.
