Have you ever been to a Cisco Live event? It is one of my most favorite event, because you get the best of the best what Cisco and our partners have to offer: high quality content featuring latest software and hardware technologies, listening and meeting key players in the organization and well-known external guests, and our developer zone! 

At Cisco Live there is an own zone for developers featuring sessions, self-guided learning labs, challenges and demos around APIs, programmability and coding. I love hanging out there talking to like-minded people who share the same passion about software. It’s also a way to solve your challenges via talking. Knowledge sharing and learning from others is helping me a lot to achieve my goals! 

Getting curious? Let me show you my highlights for the upcoming Cisco Live and on which sessions you can find me! 

Visit the Robot API Challenge

Are you familiar with REST APIs? If yes, then you could control our robot arm! At this Cisco Live event we will feature a brand-new challenge, the Robot API Challenge. In a certain time you need to move a ball (e.g. tennis ball) to its destination and win as much points as possible, but you can only use the REST API to do that. There will be also a small extra challenge and the winner with the most points will be awarded a prize. Protip: Arrive early! If you are not familiar with REST APIs, you can still take the challenge. My protip for you would be… first, take a look at our learning lab on the topic
