Master the art of using Python for a diverse range of network engineering tasks

Key Features
* Explore the power of Python libraries to tackle difficult network problems efficiently and effectively
* Use Python for network device automation, DevOps, and software-defined networking
* Become an expert in implementing advanced network-related tasks with Python

Book Description
Networks in your infrastructure set the foundation for how your application can be deployed, maintained, and serviced. Python is the ideal language for network engineers to explore tools that were previously available to systems engineers and application developers. In this second edition of Mastering Python Networking, you’ll embark on a Python-based journey to transition from traditional network engineers to network developers ready for the next-generation of networks.

This book begins by reviewing the basics of Python and teaches you how Python can interact with both legacy and API-enabled network devices. As you make your way through the chapters, you will then learn to leverage high-level Python packages and frameworks to perform network engineering tasks for automation, monitoring, management, and enhanced security. In the concluding chapters, you will use Jenkins for continuous network integration as well as testing tools to verify your network.

By the end of this book, you will be able to perform all networking tasks with ease using Python.

What you will learn
* Use Python libraries to interact with your network
* Integrate Ansible 2.5 using Python to control Cisco, Juniper, and Arista eAPI network devices
* Leverage existing frameworks to construct high-level APIs
* Learn how to build virtual networks in the AWS Cloud
* Understand how Jenkins can be used to automatically deploy changes in your network
* Use PyTest and Unittest for Test-Driven Network Development

Who this book is for
Mastering Python Networking is for network engineers and programmers who want to use Python for networking. Basic familiarity with Python programming and networking-related concepts such as Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) will be useful.

Revised Payslip to a Detailed Format

Payslip is a document received by the employees concerned, but also to the employer who pays his wages. Issuance of payslips to the employees not only promotes transparency in payment of compensation and benefits, but also provides reference in resolving conflicts involving money claims against the employer. read more »

Manual Entry of Daily Time Records (DTR)

This module created for the purpose of evaluation process or testing the whole processing from HR employee record up to payroll computation on not waiting time logs coming fingerprint attendance system. You can analyze or audit the output process by generating timekeeping report, pay slip and payroll report etc. to make it sure the computation of wages set by department of labor must follow. read more »

Generate Timesheet from Fingerprint Attendance System

Companies are switching to a fingerprint attendance system to get accurate daily time record and avoids time registration fraud know as buddy punching. Also reduces overhead for security staff when employee coming in or out to record their time logs, easy to monitor daily head count like present, absent and late. read more »
