Sessions and Activities

There’s an assortment of interactive activities and tutorials taking place in the DevNet Zone. This interactive space allows you to dive straight in and play with the SDKs, along with the help of Cisco experts. The DevNet Zone will be open Sunday through Thursday. Activities include:

  • Learning Labs — Short, sharp, self-paced sprints take only 10 minutes each, and bring you up to speed fast on a host of Cisco technologies. Check out all the DevNet Learning Labs.
  • Demos — Visit with Cisco product teams, as well as with partners who have plowed the trail before you with integrations of Cisco technologies.
  • Ask the Experts — Grab a coffee with a Cisco technology expert to get guidance, ask for help, or for a run-through of an API reference.
  • Interactive technical and business workshops and tutorials by Cisco Business Units, the DevNet team, and our partners.  See who has developed what, how and when.

Learn how DevNet can help you integrate collaboration and improve business processes, how to incorporate APIs into your applications to make them more innovative and valuable, and how Cisco APIs can help you capture benefits of the Internet of Things.
