, an entire new domain of knowledge and hierarchy was there as well.

Is DEVASC Important?
not just because it is a fresh branch, or not something that is generally provided by other vendors, but because the agenda of the DEVASC
are very useful.
they do as always with Cisco, start from scratch telling you what is DEVOPS, DEVNET, DEVASC,
and start learning all the basics of:
- Data Encoding
- API's and SDK's
- Automating Cisco Platforms
and of course the famous and most desired nowadays "Python"
all from scratch, up to a level where you can use them well in a real environment and be eager to take the next DEVNET
step to develop your automation skills even more.
DEVASC and other Associate exams
Nowadays, there are only 3 Associate exams and certificates from Cisco:
are related and one needs the other.
each of them had a specific module where it mentions and maybe practices the technologies of the other.
That will be the "Automation & Programmability" module in the CCNA
, and the "Network Fundamentals" module in DEVASC
but the CyberOps Associate is away from here, not a familiar topics with DEVNET
