Cisco Live 2015 – Community rocks.

FullSizeRender (22) The San Diego sun has set on another Cisco Live, closing out an amazing week of learning and community. As usual, Cisco Live 2015 was one jam-packed, over-before-you-know-it, week full of opportunities to learn and network with incredible peers.

Once again, I got to be part of Tech Field Day, attending presentations by both OpenGear and Netbrain.  I highly recommend checking out the videos for both, you won’t be disappointed. Netbrain even announced a DevOp version of their product, which allows you 10 free nodes. Super cool stuff, the demo will knock your geeky socks off.

And, of course, I got the hang with so many fabulous engineers, some I have come to know well over the years, and others were new shiny faces. Now I shall subject you to my camera roll, because awesome. Enjoy.

  1. Hello Amy, fortunately I’m local to San Diego and my employer let me take some time off for this Cisco Live, my first and hopefully not my last. Me and a co-worker basically handle “Voice” for the City of San Diego and prior to our positions our knowledge was basically setting up phones in CUCM. I stumbled on your page searching clues to a UCCX “Voice Monitoring” issue and found so much more. Awesome site! Thanks for all the voice knowledge. 🙂
