DEVASC exam notes – SDLC / Design Patterns / GIT / A ton of Python 3 specifically that will appear on the DEVASC exam (huge section)!

I will be pounding the pavement with small bite sized chunks of posts up to exam day! I've stalled out a bit in studies getting distracted with wanting to jump ahead to labbing CI/CD and Cloud technologies, so I am going through the DevNet OCG and will be reviewing the notes I find within its … Continue reading DEVASC exam notes – SDLC / Design Patterns / GIT / A ton of Python 3 specifically that will appear on the DEVASC exam (huge section)!

DevNet Quick Notes – GIT Merge Conflict notes and labbed (fixed), Important Unified (GIT) Diff demo and explanation of output(!), and a brief review of ‘Code Review’!

It is round #2 with GIT Merge, and I am ready to resolve some conflicts this time! But first! A couple of things I have read in the OCG and now saw on GitHub when initializing a Repo and cloning a TestRepo Branch: I've seen it enough as a best practice with GIT that I … Continue reading DevNet Quick Notes – GIT Merge Conflict notes and labbed (fixed), Important Unified (GIT) Diff demo and explanation of output(!), and a brief review of ‘Code Review’!

DevNet Not So Quick Notes – GIT Version Control functionality, terminology, branching / merging / conflicts that bested me this post!

Above shows two different GIT timelines that will and will not merge properly! The term "Fast-Forward" merge is analogous to Fast Forwarding a movie to the good part, as GIT does not care about the filler content that its moving past (Commit history of second branch), as long as there is none of the boring … Continue reading DevNet Not So Quick Notes – GIT Version Control functionality, terminology, branching / merging / conflicts that bested me this post!

Ansible / GNS3 Labbing – Configure and verify Hosts in Inventory file, explore Ansible Modules, install GIT in Ubuntu, and wrap up for tonight!

It LIVES! The Ansible Automation lab is back! Time to Automate some switch configs! Upon getting the switches configured with their IPs, I got right into the Ansible Inventory File to set both the [all:vars] to set the user/pass/os/connection, and all my different switches in their very similar to my previous lab and I got … Continue reading Ansible / GNS3 Labbing – Configure and verify Hosts in Inventory file, explore Ansible Modules, install GIT in Ubuntu, and wrap up for tonight!

Lazy Day Post – Went for a very long, much need walk, starting back on intro to Python topics, uploaded Local GIT Repo to my GitHub page as shown here (demo)!

I started to Lab... Then I tried watching TV... then I realized I needed to go outside! I caught the sun setting on a lake where I live in Minnesota, and with no humidity outside, I just walked around for an hour or so and it was AMAZING! Just like its easy to forget to … Continue reading Lazy Day Post – Went for a very long, much need walk, starting back on intro to Python topics, uploaded Local GIT Repo to my GitHub page as shown here (demo)!

Week 1 of the Cisco DevNet Grind – SDLC Methods, Design Patterns, GIT, Coding Basics, Code review / Unit Testing / Integration, TDD, and tons of info!

Beginning with this Class I will be having a much more "scribbled notes" format! I started out trying to use a pen and notepad, but I thought to myself why in world would I not type out my notes in my study blog, even if they do look like a notebook full of quick notes … Continue reading Week 1 of the Cisco DevNet Grind – SDLC Methods, Design Patterns, GIT, Coding Basics, Code review / Unit Testing / Integration, TDD, and tons of info!

GIT – Logging, Timelines, GIT HEAD / Detached Head, amend / reset / revert commands visually demo’d, and an Exam Day GIT Gotcha at the bottom of the post!

FBasg This is a view of my "GIT" Timeline from my Data Formatting / Parsing practice This graphic alone did a lot to clarify GIT to me, as I initially had no idea what the Master Branch / What the head was / Where this "Version History" was at / How to use "Version Control" … Continue reading GIT – Logging, Timelines, GIT HEAD / Detached Head, amend / reset / revert commands visually demo’d, and an Exam Day GIT Gotcha at the bottom of the post!

GIT – Setting up a local repository, working within GIT CMD Terminal, and integrating with Visual Studio Code!

This will be a step by step of creating a local Repository, and how to work with GIT As of 7/9/20 I've deleted all content from this article, and recreating it to better start off with GIT, rather than documenting my struggle to force it to work with VSC and GitHub! That being said, this … Continue reading GIT – Setting up a local repository, working within GIT CMD Terminal, and integrating with Visual Studio Code!

ENAUTO – Working with GIT (and installing it in Linux), Terminology Discussed, and a look at different Branching and Merging concepts!

GIT is something you will need to be able to work with, as this is how you will find your own needed Data Model Templates in Code Repositories such as GitHub or BitBucket, so I wanted to hit this topic hard and keep everything as concise as possible. Developers do not need to be on … Continue reading ENAUTO – Working with GIT (and installing it in Linux), Terminology Discussed, and a look at different Branching and Merging concepts!
