Network Application Developer

Cisco Network Application Developer Specialist

The Cisco Network Programmability Developer Specialist certification is for software programmers who focus on the development of the network applications layer, which can live in any of the Cisco provided programmable components, and will enable service provider, campus, and data center use cases. This certification and course develop the foundation skills needed to develop network applications in programmable environments such as Cisco's One Platform Kit (onePK), and Open Daylight Controller (ODL) and Application Policy Infrastructure Controllers (APICs). Unlike SDN courses that focus on network theory, this certification adds to your practical networking understanding and utilizes Cisco's experience in WAN, data center, and campus environments to provide you with the skills you will need to become a network developer.

Candidates should be able to program in Python, C, or other languages in an open networking environment prior to this certification.
