Hi all, we have so many people helping and learning from each other in the Cisco Developer Community, but I couldn't find a topic for us to share more about ourselves. So here it is! Prepare to talk about yourself to your fellow community members and share more about who you are and the cool things you're up to.

I'll start us off.

My name is Sean and I joined both Cisco and the Cisco Developer Community last December (2022). I'm currently living near Austin, TX. I listen to all types of music but more hard rock and metal than anything else. In my free time, I play many video games. And I am quite the purrveyor of lolcats and memes!

I'll play! Been around Cisco for a minute or two (working on my quarter century)... been part of this community since 2008 (took 10 years from my Cisco start to join the community? What was I thinking??). Been serious about my community engagement since probably 2014 or 2015, having helped with the migration to Khoros and getting my team involved with answering developer questions and creating a lot of the content that you now see. 
On a personal level, I am a Silicon Valley native, being born in Santa Clara, and I have been living in the beachside community of Santa Cruz for, oh probably 20 or so years now. In my free time, I like playing in bands... Here's a show from the instrumental surf band that I play in on our European tour in 2018!


I'm Jack, embarking on my adventure within the realm of Cisco DevNet Sandbox. My primary focus lies in my pursuit of the CCNP ENCORE certification.

I proudly contribute my expertise at AlticeLabs, where we dedicate ourselves to the development of cutting-edge network equipment. Within this dynamic landscape, I serve as both a meticulous tester and a proficient network engineer.

After seeing your hard work, one gets the impression that you are indeed a hardworking and respectable person. After seeing your passion, I am inspired by you. From which I started presenting fun and high consciousness type games on my personal website. If you get some time, definitely check it out.

Until next time!

Hi all

My name is Luca and I work at onway, a small company in Zurich, Switzerland. I deal a lot with automation. In our office we deploy (almost) all our systems with Ansible. I have also worked on several customer projects where the focus was on automation. I have most experience with Python and Ansible, but I also know my way around Terraform, RESTCONF, NETCONF etc.
In February this year I even passed the DevNet Expert exam (#20230004).

Currently my main focus is on the DevNet Academy ( I want to create an e-learning that makes it easier for other people to prepare for the DevNet Expert exam. This has taken up practically all my time in the last few months.

But now I would like to get more involved in the community and answer open questions here (if possible).



After a 15 year break in networking I am getting back in the game.  15 year break you say??  Well, a little about me.  I just retired with 20 years service from the Army and when I joined, I was doing it all, systems administration as well as networking.  After 2 years in, I was selected to recruiting and when I came out of recruiting, they had taken the network portion away from my job. It didn't occur to me at the time to switch to the networking as I liked the systems administration as well.

Fast forward 20 years and I am now in a position where I need CCNA and CCNP for the position.  I am working on the CCNA and have packet tracer at home, but can't install it on the work computer without jumping through a lot of flaming hoops.

I am looking into devnet but am wondering if there is a completely blank sandbox I can play in to work on the various labs and packet tracer files that I have from all the CCNA prep sources I have.

That was a long winded intro and I thank you for taking the time to read it!!
