Panel Discussion: (Really!) Outside the Box: Cisco’s Open Source Journey - Moderated by Ed Warnicke, Cisco

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Not used to hearing Cisco and “open” used in the same sentence? Wondering why Cisco is investing as heavily as it is in open source technologies? If you answered yes to either of those questions, this panel is for you. Join moderator and Linux luminary Ed Warnicke along with panelists Serpil Bayraktar, Rohit Agarwalla, Anne McCormick, and Charles Eckel as they discuss the various areas of Cisco’s involvement in the open source ecosystem. They’ll be covering Cisco’s involvement in and contributions to FD.io/VPP, SNAS.io, OpenStack, Kubernetes/Cloud Native, and much more. The panel will also discuss how Cisco’s contributions and involvement in open source technologies are key components in its future strategy. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn about Cisco DevNet (developer.cisco.com), Cisco’s developer resource hub that offers learning labs, forums, sandboxes, API and code libraries, hackathons, and much, much more. The future is open and Cisco is moving forward to embrace it with (you knew it was coming) open arms.
