What about this course?
This course is intended for network engineers who want to use automation to simplify and streamline management of their environment but are unfamiliar with scripting on networking platforms. The topics covered in this class can be applied across all vendors because the TCL and Expect languages are not platform-specific. Using TCL/Expect along with regular expressions, you will find that many tasks that would have previously taken hours can be done in a matter of minutes!
