    DevNet certifications will validate skills in areas such as Cisco APIs, Cisco’s programmability strategy, security, and network ops. This new cert program is targeted at software developers, DevOps engineers, automation specialists, and other software professionals.  I passed! I went through the exam topics, educated myself on what I’m less familiar with, and also did many of the relevant Hands-on labs on DevNet.  For me i do many practice as my friend recommand, i study the tec and use the practice get passed easily

    Network Chuck, if he hasn't already done so, should be coming out with a video about his experience taking the DevNet Associate exam.

    I may go for it at the end of the year after I get my JNCIP-DC, I do a lot with automation mostly Juniper but from the blue print there is some overlap with Junipers DevOps cert. 

    I dont think they have released the official guide yet, at least its not available on Amazon yet:
    https://www.amazon.com/Certified-DevNet-Associate-200-901-Official/dp/0136642969/ref=sr_1_1?crid=OQS329YWNUBO&keywords=devnet+associate+devasc+200-901&qid=1582653465&sprefix=devnet%2Caps%2C292&sr=8-1

    Should be interesting to see how popular this cert will be

    Considering how integrated DevOps is these days, what with Axelos including a brief overview in their ITIL 4 Foundation exam, getting this certification can only help.  One of the more frustrating things to see is that they didn't sync the launch of the official guides with the exams for a lot of the new certs (DevNet, CCNP Security, etc).  Of course, having never produced a book or training videos before, I am sure that getting everything lined up before hand can be rather difficult.  Especially if certain authors keep poking themselves in the eye, right @Iristheangel?

    We'll see, I'd say programming is one of those fields that no one cares about a certification. If I'm interviewing someone for a network automation position, which I do I don't care if you have a certification.

    Show me your github or what tasks you automated using Python, some vendor API etc.

    MCQ are not a good way to test someone on their understanding of a API or a programming language. Building a useful tool is more important and the only way to do that is by putting in the time. Learning the API/Programming language takes a long time and a certification isn't going to tell me much in the area of programming.

    With that being said, personally I'd still get it for fun. I would be very surprised if it will hold as much weight as a CCNA/CCNP etc. Programming is a completely different beast than Networking.

    After having listened to some of NetworkChuck's video on passing the DevNet Associate exam, a few thoughts come to mind:

    1.  This isn't for developers, per se.  It seems more like a certification for networking professionals who are moving, or attempting to move, into a more automation-centric role.  I am thinking more along the lines of SDN and API integration.
    2.  This also seems more inline with a role where you will be an admin that is involved in large-scale deployments across multiple devices and geographic regions.  Automation, or at least some level of scripting, would be beneficial in that role, from what I understand.
    3.  Nobody really has it, knows about it, or is looking for it, in the grand scale of things.  So value, at this point, is definitely relative.

    So, again, just some thoughts.  I haven't prepared for it and, frankly, don't know if I will or not.  If I do, I will update my thoughts on it in a separate post.
