You’ll get to understand how to develop using Cisco controllers and virtual networks using continuous development, to create a professional developer experience. You’ll learn what the controllers are about, how do you really use them. How you can build using different tools, and where to get them.Find out the detail of what’s in the DevNet Zone for SDN
We’ll highlight how Cisco is embracing DevOps principles and providing tools to help you to automate. Specifically, we’ll educate you about DevOps generally – through using some industry gurus, and provide you with examples of how Cisco used DevOps principles when developing Jabber, WebEx, Squared, ScanSafe. We’ll be ‘dog-fooding’, showing how we’ve integrated these principles into our own work. Plus, you’ll find out about the DevOps tools you’ll soon be able to use when developing using Cisco SDN technologies, enabling you to automate the way in which you use Cisco: automated build and test capabilities that then become building blocks for automation.

We’ll introduce you to our OpenSource DevCenter (incl OpenDaylight, OpenStack, SNORT and OPNFV)), clarify the tie-up between OpenSource and Open Standards, show how and where are we using and contributing to OpenSource, give examples of OpenStack developers talking about what they’re doing within Cisco, showcase top contributors who have used Snort, and also hold a developer contest using the OpenStack platform (at the same time a the Hackathon)Find out the detail of what’s in the DevNet Zone for Open Source
We’ll show you how to build composable, cloud-native applications, whether you’re transforming existing applications to Microservices, or creating new Microservices style applications. We’ll also look at automating the operations of these applications, using container orchestration services. Plus you’ll see live demos of Microservices applications being deployed and operated on the Cisco Intercloud using Docker and Nirmata.Find out the detail of what’s in the DevNet Zone for Cloud
You’ll be able to use the Enterprise Internet of Things toolkit to accelerate the number of sensor and control endpoints onto the network, find out how you can enable and manage the hyper-distribution of apps through the Application Foundation. Plus use Data In Motion (DMo)and play with the CMX Mobility Services APIs.Find out the detail of what’s in the DevNet Zone for IoT
We’ll teach you how to integrate voice, voice mail, IM and conferencing capabilities into your web-enabled application, be able to incorporate a full Jabber Guest experience into your web or mobile app and get to grips with unified communications within Cisco.Find out the detail of what’s in the DevNet Zone for Collaboration
