The NSO community is constantly growing. The number of unique visitors on the Developer Hub has been increasing steadily since the beginning and the trend continues. Network Automation is, as we could read in Cisco’s inaugural Networking Trends report, one of the five technology areas that will have the biggest impact on networking over the next five years. No wonder why we continue to see such as big interest in the community to meet with industry peers and NSO experts at our Developer Days events, including Developer Days -US!  

For the past two years, we had hosted Developer Days -US at the Cisco office in NYC with increasing attendance each year. Due to overwhelming interest this year, we are excited to announce that we outgrew our Cisco office and moved the event to Madison Square Garden.

Hold your horses! No, we are not going to kick-off the event with Bruce Springsteen and we will not use pyrotechnics. However, we are offering an impressive agenda with a mix of technical and non-technical sessions spiced with best practices. This year we invited Kristian Larsson from DT to talk about streamlining your development-test-deployment flow using Docker containers; Jeff Cook from Charter will talk about how they have used the OpenConfig standard with NSO to become device-agnostic, and Hank Preston from Cisco DevNet will share experiences using NSO to orchestrate DevNet Sandboxes. In addition, we have core developers and subject matter experts that will provide the technical deep dives and managerial insights. 

For Developer Days -US, we avoided putting too much on the agenda to allow for informal discussions with the community and a more intimate event.

The larger venue provides room for demo stations for our technology partners including Itential and Netrounds. Together with Cisco CX and partners, we will be showcasing compelling use case demos during breaks and the evening reception.

We’re also introducing “Ask an Expert” during lunch each day with themed tables for roundtable discussions of technical topics with NSO experts. We will announce the discussion themes on the Developer Hub two weeks prior to the event. We will consider your ideas for topics—just let us know.
