Software Defined Networking (SDN) can use a network controller to help orchestrate the monitoring and configuration of multiple network devices, allowing for faster configuration and more scalability. While these controllers have graphic user interfaces (GUIs), allowing them to be individually configured by an administrator, they can also be controlled with programs (typically written in Python).
Fortunately, network administrators don't have to create all of their Python programs from scratch. Instead, they can download sample code (which they can then modify for their needs) from other programmers. They can also share their own code. GitHub is a very popular way to share such code samples. This video will introduce you the the fundamentals of GitHub and show you how to get started with your own free GitHub account.
This video is a sample from my new Fundamentals of Network Programmability course.
