So you know those episodes of your favorite TV shows that are nothing but clips of other episodes? Well, think of this particular post as one of those cheater episodes. As much as I love Cisco Live, all the good stuff has already been written up and now I will show you just where that good stuff lives.
First up is Jeff Fry’s blog which I absolutely love, not only because it’s a great wealth of information on Cisco Live, but also because he always has at least one post that contains a map. Being a directionally challenged individual, this is one post I highly recommend. Jeff also has several other great posts on Cisco Live 2013 so be sure to check them out as well, and while you’re there be sure to check out his fabulous technical posts on pretty much any topic networking related, you won’t be sorry you did.
My second hat tip goes to Tom who happens to be the keeper of the Great Twitter List of Awesomeness for Cisco Live 2013. Tom has several great posts on what to expect from the event in general and useful info on the annual Tweet Up. And, of course, while you are hanging out on Tom’s site, don’t forget to check out his post on the infamous Cisco Live 2011 Tom Tramp Stamp, which includes a link at the bottom of the post to said tattoo. That’s just good entertainment right there.
Next up is Teren’s blog which includes info on the CAE, Disney discounts for Cisco Live attenders, and a nice post on why you should be going to Cisco Live and better yet, why your boss should support you. Teren also has posted some fantastic photos of last year’s event here so be sure to check them out if you went last year or if you just like clicking on pictures of strangers.
For more good tips on what to pack and what to expect, I recommend checking out Scott’s post and Bob McCouch’s post. I’ve hung out with both of these guys at past Cisco Live events and the advice they give is practical and spot on.
Last, and certainly not least, if you are interested in more information about the keynotes for Cisco Live 2013, be sure to check out John’s post on the subject here. He’s summarized the speakers and dates for you, so be sure to bookmark a link for when you are planning out your schedule.
And that’s a wrap on our tour of all things Cisco Live 2013, as you can see, Cisco Live is quite the event! Hopefully the impressive work of these bloggers makes your trip just a bit easier and certainly less overwhelming!
