Developing Applications and Automating Workflows Using Cisco Core Platforms (DEVASC) is a 5-day course which helps students prepare for Cisco DevNet Associate certification and for associate-level network automation engineer roles. Students will learn how to implement basic network applications using Cisco platforms as a base, and how to implement automation workflows across network, security, collaboration, and computing infrastructure. The course gives you hands-on experience solving real world problems using Cisco Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and modern development tools. The course qualifies for 48 Cisco Continuing Education credits (CE) towards recertification. This course helps you prepare to take the 200-901 DevNet Associate (DEVASC) exam. By passing this exam, you earn Cisco Certified DevNet Associate certification. What to expect in the exam The 200-901 DEVASC exam certifies your knowledge of software development and design including understanding and using APIs, Cisco platforms and development, application development and security, and infrastructure and automation. After you pass 200-901 DEVASC, you earn Cisco Certified DevNet Associate certification.
