SXSW 2019 PanelPicker

It’s time to VOTE for the sessions you want to see at SXSW 2019. Click on the session links below to cast your vote!

But before you do, know that there’s a new track being added to SXSW this year called, “Coding and Development.” Check out the 14 sessions (see list below) that Cisco DevNet is submitting, and let us know with your vote which ones are of interest to you.

The “Coding and Development” track is an important addition to SXSW. The digital world – the apps, the cloud, the network – are all around us. In virtually every aspect of our lives. Understanding it; learning how to work with it gives us an edge; an advantage. Whether you’re communicating with your communities, automating your life, programming a network, building a website, in a sense, today, everyone is a “developer.”

DevNet wants to empower your inner developer. DevNet is all about providing you with tools, learning opportunities, and community to thrive in the digital world. That’s why we’re so excited to offer the sessions we are proposing (below).

Schedules for the festival are created by popular demand, so please…VOTE!

Voting closes on August 30.  To vote, simply click on the session below to go to the SXSW Panel Picker. When you’re voting, be sure you’re signed in so you can simply click the “thumbs up” to cast your vote for the sessions that you want to see.
