I’m sure many would give thanks for a warm house, family, friends, our health, a job. Of course, at Cisco, we also give thanks for the many people who support what we do every day. And that goes especially to you, our partners: Thank you for your continued commitment to Cisco.

So while I take a few days off to give thanks and enjoy a meal with my family and friends, I wanted to share a few tools and sites that will help you navigate Cisco’s offerings for partners.

While the list is long, we want to be sure that you know that there are multiple sources of information to help you in your everyday work with Cisco. And don’t worry, you won’t be tested.
