Hey everybody, coming to you from the first day of Cisco Live, straight from the DevNet Zone! We have tons of stuff going on here this week, as detailed in this blog by Ray Stephenson.
I've been doing the DevNet Zone at Cisco Live for several years now, and each year has lots of surprises. For one, I am always amazed by how many people come by to get their first taste of the developer world. I thought that by this point, everyone would be familiar with what the DevRel team does at Cisco, but our intro to coding sessions are always packed. Besides the basic stuff, there are many deep dives into the programmability of many Cisco products, as well as sessions on some of the trends and forward possibilities of technology. On top of that, we always have a lot of fun and good interactions with our developers and larger Cisco community. This year, we have both the Dev Dash and IoT golf... super fun!
Of course, there is more to do at Cisco Live than just the DevNet Zone. Lots of great keynotes, training, demos for products and services, partner connections, and other things going on. While I hope that attendees see some of these things, I know it's tough to leave the DevNet Zone... some people spend most of their week in our corner of Cisco Live!
