Akshat Sharma, Cisco Systems Inc.

Akshat Sharma is a Technical Marketing Engineer in the Web Solutions space at Cisco .His day job includes a core focus on Network operating system architecture and Devops tooling in the Web and Service Provider domain. With 7 years of experience across a variety of sectors including DevOps, Automation, SDN, data center deployments, and even Multicast deployments across Service providers, he now spends his time tinkering with open source tools to make networking a lot more fun!
Abstract: Ever wondered why your network deployment timelines always get pushed out? Or why your network config validation takes weeks, sometimes months? Could you enable better automation, increased access to test-networks for testers, detailed comprehensive reports without hiring an army of developers? In this session we introduce a whole new way to test network devices that leverages test cases from the open source community and enables automated network testing at scale on virtual hardware. We introduce a new open-source library for the RobotFramework that enables coders and network engineers to represent and share complicated test cases around BGP, OSPF, Streaming Telemetry and more, in simple text files. All of this is achieved with the help of vendor agnostic APIs using tools like Napalm, ydk-py and others in a pluggable format within the library. We will also showcase how such a framework enables devops workflows to percolate through the organization stack and increases code quality across tools and core network operating software.
