which programming/scripting language is recommended to learn

‎02-18-2016 06:00 AM

hi, i am intersted in learning code, but that should be inline with network programming.

 

hope junos is based on unix bsd, so does it mean that junos is develped using bash.

or should i go with c / c++ as unix is made of c. Also what is this slax all about, why aren't we talking about bash when it comes to scripting automation in junos.

 

i guess cisco ios is written with tcl, then why does it hire network develpers with c / c++ skills, lil confusing.

 

i am more interested in junos though, so which language learning would benefit with junos networking.

Hi shakir,

 

For scripting and automation you should learn python. C/C++ is used to write the actual Network OS Core/Kernel; but there is no interface to them for programming purposes other than scripts and python is taking the lead with multiple vendors.
