I found Ivan's Network Automation online course to be very useful in helping me get started with my own efforts. I was previously not aware of some of the other tools that were presented in the course, so I learned a whole new tool set, but perhaps the best was seeing how other people are using automation to do things like automate BGP configuration and validation, or automating the configuration of a multi-rack data center compute module with just a few parameters.

You'll get the most out of it if you do the preparation study and keep up with the labs. Be prepared to be challenged.
