The student will learn the modern network programming and automation methodologies and the related enabling technologies. The student will learn how to use a platform for virtual network programming and automation in a cloud computing environment and a control plane for software defined networks. Moreover the student will learn how to use specific data models for the design and for the programming of network services, according to the current standards. A particular focus will be given the programming of Data Plane through the P4 Language
Teaching resoureces are available upon requests at the slide link.
If you are not a Student from University of Bologna please contact me to ask for slides, exercises and virtual machine lab, i would love to help the community to spread the knowledge!
