"Usually I'm not doing courses review but this time I will make an exception. During time I took a lot of trainings but very few provided by Udemy proved as having the right approach in teaching the audience. I will mark this one as being one of my personal top three best trainings as content's quality, technical explanations, and additional learning materials perspective. Long story short this course is a very simple, straight forward way of learning Python for managing IT networks." by Johnny Stanescu
Thousands of satisfied students are enrolled in my Python Network Programming courses across the Web
Last week, over 300 students have joined my courses

"I've tried learning from the books & multiple videos - most were too basic to make a practical app. Some books were too thick and made me sleep. But still none of the materials had the perfect balance like this course where all the basics were covered, instructions were concise, and Mihai walks you through how to create 5 practical apps step by step. I've also tried reading some advanced python book which didn't make sense because it was too advanced. Let me tell you, this is hands down "that course that takes you up to beyond the basics" to bridge you to the advance topics. Right now I'm hitting the advanced topics and it finally makes sense..." by Joon Park

"I have been programming since 1978 and wanted to learn python. I have had no java or OOP experience, and I tried several 'paper' tutorials but got little out of them. The first part of this course is a steady walk through the Python language at just the right speed. The instructor seems to touch all the basis in a logical and methodical way while providing examples and explanations. I can only conclude the instructor is a professional educator who spent considerable time structuring and organizing the course. The result is evident. THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO LEARN PYTHON!" by Larry Laswell
Save Time and Money by Writing Your Own Python Programs to Automate Daily Network Tasks. Bonus, You Might Even Get a Raise or a Better Job with These New Skills!
"I find this course very useful for beginners in programming or for those who especially want to learn Python/networking. I think a new language is learned more practicing, and this course has many practical examples with clear explanations." by Mihaela Dvornic
Python network programming (v2.7.3) course aimed not only at network professionals, but at anyone having little or no experience in coding or network automation and a great desire to start learning Python from scratch. This hands-on Python Network Programming training takes you from "Hello World!" to complex network applications in less than 15 hours.
"As always for learning programming language I would always recommend going through a well rated tutorial video lecture series than going through a 1000 page text. A well designed course can impart knowledge at a much faster rate and with less effort from the listener. Of course the course has to fantastically designed. And this course is just that, that lectures are easy to comprehend, the concepts are thoroughly learnt using simple & effective examples. So I highly recommend this course." by Musarrat Rahman
During this course you will learn Python concepts which are relevant to your networking job and build some amazing network tools:
Python App#1: Subnet calculator.
Python App#2: Configuring multiple network devices concurrently via SSH or Telnet.
Python App#3: DHCP client simulator for testing a DHCP server in the local network.
Python App#4: Collecting information from routers and storing it in a MySQL database.
Python App#5: OSPF network discovery via SNMP. Building the OSPF topology.
Python App#6: Basic network sniffer.
Python App#7: Configuration file comparator.
"I've doing many Python courses, but till now this is the best by far. Very self paced, Mihai explains each step in a very simple manner that any beginner could understand. The courses approach for me is the best. Very oriented to real application development. Very good, would recommend to anyone beginning in python." by Felipe
Sounds unbelievable given your current programming experience? Well, it's true! How?
First, you will learn and practice every Python key concept, which is explained in one or more video lectures, followed by a short quiz. Each video is filled with relevant examples, in a learn-by-doing fashionand the quizzes will help you consolidate the main ideas behind each Python topic.
After laying the foundation (and also exploring some advanced Python topics), you will dive right into thereal-life network scenarios and apply your knowledge to build 7 great network tools.
"There is no major prerequisite and the material is hand-on from the go. Besides new lectures are being uploaded in response to suggestions and discussions." by Zafar Iqbal
Equipped with working files, network topologies and Python code samples (in .pdf and .py formats), you will be able to work alongside me on each lecture and each application. I will provide a virtual machine with all the Python modules already installed and also the full code for each application, so you can save time and start coding and testing on the spot.
We will use emulated routers in GNS3 to test our Python apps in a network environment, so you can see the actual results of running your code.
I encourage you to learn Python, an amazingly beginner-friendly programming language and take your (networking) job to a higher level of automation.
"This is a great course for network engineers who would like to start automating their tasks. Geared towards beginners, this course teaches the fundamentals of programming and applying those concepts to networking. There is a lot of fluff about python on the internet, however the instructor managed to put together the necessary information to start automating the network. A working knowledge of TCP/IP is needed to get the most out of this course. Should you understand every lecture, you will be ready to start writing your own scrs according to your needs. In particular, I loved the use of scapy, an amazing tool which should be in the arsenal of anyone working with TCP/IP." by Costin-Alin Neacsu

"I've seen the blueprint and some demo videos and I was convinced right away. Without a doubt, it's one of the best trainings a network engineer can have. It gives you actual valuable and marketable skills that you can use in your daily job. Mihai explains the topics really well, with practical examples making it a fun way to learn. Highly recommended." by Vlad Vlaicu
