Course Description

Developing Applications Using Cisco Core Platforms and APIs (DEVCOR)

The Developing Applications Using Cisco Core Platforms and APIs (DEVCOR) v1.0 course helps you prepare for Cisco DevNet Professional certification and for professional-level network automation engineer roles. You will learn how to implement network applications using Cisco® platforms as a base, from initial software design to diverse system integration, as well as testing and deployment automation. The course gives you hands-on experience solving real world problems using Cisco Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and modern development tools. 

The Developing Applications Using Cisco Core Platforms and APIs (DEVCOR) course is also available as part of our Cisco DevNet Passport, which helps developers and IT professionals write applications and develop integrations with Cisco products, platforms, and APIs.
