    DevNet Zone Activities

    There will be 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. Activities include:


    Classroom Sessions


    Overviews, API Deep Dives and coding tutorials.


    Learning Labs


    Get hands-on and start coding. No experience required. The labs are self-paced tutorials covering five technology areas. Do it yourself and call out if you get stuck – a DevNet team member is only a hand wave away.




    Come see the DevNet Sandbox and the DevNet Innovation demos.
