Cisco Live

Cisco Live Amsterdam is less than a month away ?? I’m sure you guessed that Hallo Wereld is simplyHello World in Dutch and also not a surprise; the DevNet Zone will be bringing attendees the latest and greatest developer resources around DevOps, Cloud Native, Infrastructure as Code, Full Stack Observability and SOOO much more! Whether you are an experienced SRE or a network administrator looking how to automate some of your infrastructure management; the DevNet Zone is where you belong.   

I’m often asked why people come back to the DevNet Zone every single day of Cisco Live events. My answer is always the same… Takeovers! What’s a “Takeover?” Well, each day of Cisco Live we welcome one Cisco business unit to bring you in depth product sessions and demos with a fresh and unique experience designed exclusively for developers. And you know we bring the fun with snacks, prizes, and surprises at every turn!

Here is the takeover schedule for Cisco Live Amsterdam this year:
