Programming the ACI Fabric
ACI at its core is a ReST API platform to manage a large scale data center
fabric. Moving away from string based CLI constructs, ACI uses objects that provide structured data
interaction tools that make it easier for programing languages to interact with it. In this lab session,
you will learn to build a small web based application that will implement tasks in a real ACI fabric.
We will show the student how to use various tools available to you such that you can develop an application
that streamlines how you would use ACI in your production network. The lab will also contain an optional
section to transfer the application into the Cisco ACI APP center that provides an excelent platform to
run your applications. Knowledge of Python is a requirement for this lab session, and an optional section
concepts of ACI is a plus.
