Simplifying network automation using Python model-driven APIs

This session describes how to significantly simplify network programmability using APIs generated from YANG data models. Model-driven APIs allow the network programmer to focus on the underlying structure of the device configuration and operational data. They abstract protocols, transports and encodings, plus they free the programmer from having to master the specifics of YANG. This session will show you how to get started with Python model-driven APIs using the YANG development kit (YDK). The session will end with a demonstration of the simple Python script using model-driven APIs to configure router using an OpenConfig data model.
