Matt DeNapoli

Developer Advocate - Meraki & CMX

Developer Experience

I started my illustrious Cisco career in 2007 as a wireless support engineer. Over the course of the first 6 years, I worked in many capacities for the Cisco Developer Network, the precursor to today’s DevNet program. Then, in 2013 I helped with the implementation of the DevNet program, acting as systems analyst, a metrics guru, a coder, a teacher, a systems engineer, and a developer evangelist…sometimes all at the same time! I'm proud to represent the DevNet program and inspire current and future developers.
