Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 10.11.34 AM.pngSpring is a great time to be in Boston, and the OpenStack Summit is a great place to engage with Cisco DevNet on everything Cisco is doing with OpenStack. We are proud to once again be sponsor the summit. We have a great lineup of demos featured in our booth and experts with whom you can chat to get answers to all things OpenStack@Cisco.

Want to get a jumpstart on things, visit our Open Source Dev Center at any time to access developer resources related to all things open source at Cisco, including a complete site dedicated to OpenStack.

For convenience, here is a list of the sessions with speakers from Cisco within the main conference, followed by what is happening in "The Cube" plus a list of demos featured in the Cisco booth in the Marketplace.
