This time last year, I shared with you the story of my childhood, and how I became focused on a career in technology. While it’s still summer here in California, I would like to share with you a special photo of my son during vacation.  It’s a lovely reminder of how grateful I am for my job at Cisco DevNet, and the many opportunities it brings me professionally and personally.

The Cisco Live Latin America backpack travels from Cancun to Cairo. Great for exploring pyramids!

Cisco Live Cancún is almost here! That doesn’t mean that we’re just now starting to think about what to bring to the DevNet Zone in Latin America.  Our lovely continent is always top of mind as we plan out each year.  My social media twin, fellow marketing manager Julio Fernandez, reminds me daily how many eager developers our community has in Mexico, Brazil, and in his native Colombia. Naturally, I always add Argentina.


We will be in Cancun again this year, to welcome everyone who makes their way to the DevNet Zone! We continue to learn so much every year, and we look forward to making the trip to hear your success stories with Cisco APIs!  Please make sure to add a comment below to let us know what you would like to see in the DevNet Zone this year.


Since I’ve got your attention, make sure to bookmark the content that #TeamDevNet will be focusing on in 2020:



If you’re making the trip to Cancun this year, look for me in the DevNet Zone, where our experts are bringing you the newest Cisco programmability content.

Your curiosity and participation will be rewarded with exclusive challenges, prizes, and even a special hour when you can learn all about Cisco ACI. You’ll also find me throughout the venue, interviewing Cisco Partners about their innovations with Cisco APIs.

If you’re not joining us in person in Cancun this year, please check often for updates on our Cisco Live Latin America page.


Let’s keep growing together.  Join us!
