    “A great and worthwhile experience! Now I can steer my career towards SDN and programming.”
    – IVAN BACCHUS, CISCO LIVE BERLIN 2016 ATTENDEE

    SPOT ON SESSIONS

    “Everything was pitched perfectly to my beginner level and I felt that it will give me a very good grounding in these subjects. This was spot on, I achieved exactly what I had hoped.”
    – CISCO LIVE BERLIN 2016 ATTENDEE

    LEARNING NEW CONCEPTS AND JOINING COMMUNITIES

    “A lot of new concepts are brought closer to the public thanks to DevNet and this is an opportunity that must not go to waste. For example, SDN is not what most people think it is, it can be a lot of things depending what clients need and what components are used. Community is the key word here.”
