Welcome to the August edition of Programmability Monthly.
Lots of great content that we couldn't wait to share with you! Read on for an introduction to our new YANG Patch and RESTCONF application note, the upcoming YANG Push Standard Webinar, NSO Developer Days, plus two new blogs.
Hope you enjoy reading our content as much as we enjoy bringing it to you.

RESTCONF provides a standard RESTful API that vendors can implement to make it easy for customers to work with a uniform REST interface across all devices rather than a diverse set of vendor-defined proprietary REST interfaces.
One weakness of RESTCONF when compared with NETCONF, is in its inability to combine multiple different edit operations into a single operation and therefore a single transaction. To remedy this, the IETF NETCONF Working Group created the YANG Patch Media Type in RFC 8072.
Download our new "YANG Patch and RESTCONF" app note, which will introduce and describe this new media type.
Network operators need to be able to collect statistical, performance, and status information from the devices in their network in order to monitor network health, collect information for billing, and be aware of changes in their networks. But, traditional ways of collecting this data—using a poll model—hit a dead-end for the continuously growing amount of data that needs to be collected, and for the normal operation of applications that need to quickly react in a constantly changing and scaling network.
Join our webinar on September 9 at 10:00 AM PDT to learn about the YANG Push standard which enables a more efficient and configurable way for Network Devices to push data to subscribed clients, and to understand how ConfD supports this standard.

The EANTC Multi-Vendor NETCONF and YANG SDN Management Interoperability event tested the readiness of orchestrator/ controller and router solutions' interoperability using NETCONF as the management protocol with standardized YANG models.
RESTCONF needed a way to mix different CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations in one operation. A solution was found in the form of RFC 8072 "YANG Patch Media Type" which is referred to as "YANG Patch".
