Valuable for Network Engineers

“The incredible level of patience of the staff in explaining concepts that other development conferences may lack. I look forward to the coming of Network Engineer 2.0 I believe this event ushered in.”

Self-Paced Labs a Huge Value

“The self paced labs were a huge value because I was able to experience the required future skills of a network engineer first hand. I clearly understand where my knowledge gap is and what I need to do to further my career in the network space.”

Ability to Interact was Exciting

“It took my imagination to new heights! Love talking with Cisco innovating engineers and learning what awesome technologies and opportunities await!”

Great Experience

“The whole DevNet Zone was great. It was my first Cisco Live and I did not realize the potential benefits initially in DevNet. After spending some time there, I was able to play with the VIRL software, see APIC-EM functionality and meet key folks within Cisco that are building the automation and orchestration pieces for our next generation.”
