Learn to build an Ansible like command line utility called Commander
Commander is a replica of scripts I built while working at companies like PayPal, eBay, and Symantec to help manage & patch thousands of Linux systems and network devices.
In this course you'll learn how to
✔️ Build a command line utility in Python
✔️ Use Python to SSH to Linux machines and run commands.
✔️ Setup sudo for running commands as root
✔️ Use Threading to increase speed by reducing wait time on network i/o
✔️ Upload & Download files to servers via SCP in Python
✔️ And more...
See a preview of the material on my YouTube channel.
- Access to machines running SSH OR the ability to sign up for Digital Ocean or another cloud provider (AWS,GCP, etc) to create machines to test with.
- Python installed on your machine.
Who is this course for
This course is perfect for DevOps/SRE/Cloud engineers who are looking to automate the boring stuff in their day to day lives using Python & SSH.
If you're using Ansible or Rundeck today, you can use Commander as a foundation to extend and build exactly what you need for your use-cases.
Additionally, this course will be fun for Python beginners who want to work on a useful project that teaches you how to build a command line utility and implement Threading in Python.
This course is intended to be short, sweet and straight to the point.
I look forward to hearing your feedback & seeing what you build with this knowledge.
