Heading home – Cisco Live 2008

June 26th, 2008 · 2 Comments · CISCO, Networkers

Sunday morning twenty two coworkers and I got off various planes bright eyed and bushy tailed ready to attack a week of learning, networking and having a great time. After a week of classes, and entertaining till 2:00 am each night, we look more like the walking dead.

Of course, it was all worth it. Some people see networkers as primarily an opportunity to prepare for a certification. Others got to learn something completely new. Some even go just for the world of solutions and the various booth babes. What I value the most is the opportunity to see old friends, and make new ones, to sit down with someone you have just met and have a half hour conversation on distribution / access layer technologies, or just throw some darts. No matter what, the goal is to connect, learn and collaborate with my peers. This year, I can say that these goals have been achieved. See you next year at the Moscone Center in San Francisco at Cisco Live Networkers 2008.
