While working with the Cisco DevRel team to map out this year’s DevNet Zone at Cisco Live, I came across several new faces and realized not everyone is familiar with the DevNet Zone, and the fun and learning that happens there!
DevNet Zone sessions are different from many other breakout sessions at Cisco Live in that they are open and available to all. Classroom sessions are conducted by experts who go through hands-on exercises and help attendees follow with them. They are interactive, hand-on sessions if you really want to work along, or you can choose to just listen in. In addition to the classroom sessions, there are smaller workshop sessions (8-12 people only) where you get more focused attention working with a proctor.
The hands-on workshops often attract people who prefer to listen in.
Check out the full list of over 200 sessions and workshops coming to the DevNet Zone. Here are a few of my favorites that may still have some space. Click on the session title to register.
