tnewshott Waiting for Cisco to open up some of those API’s on the security products…
RickVanover I’ve felt that SDN and more have a problem where one person can’t do it all. I need to work on my teamwork to do it all.
NetworkingNerd The Phoenix Project – Brent Problems. One person can’t do it all. You need a team to make it truly great.
tnewshott what is the push to have other BU’s within cisco to expose more capabilities via RESTful services or direct API’s?
skutzer Whoot – i am here

@gallifreyan I learned the hard way not to sign up for sessions every available slot.
RickVanover the major events are too intense
RickVanover Bring protein bars or snacks
tnewshott I schedule the full week, and then drop as I feel appropriate.
crajohns6965 @samwomack…You going to be at DFW Cisco users tomorrow?
RickVanover The ibuprofen is for when rule #1 beer vs. water is broken
samwomack I’m not in town
bwhaynes I’m curious as to what code language is most popular for development? is python the development language of choice or C or maybe fortran??
samwomack Nike Pegasus 30..
tnewshott Python has been our major driver….with OnePK supporting it natively.
@gallifreyan NEVER buy new shoes the weekend before Cisco Live. Or even the week before.
samwomack @bwhaynes I write in Java, Python, and C..I use Java for work and Python for play
NetworkingNerd Yes. Shoes need to be broken in beforehand. No matter how cute they might look…
