This is going to be my 2nd Cisco Live, and i’m very excited because i’ve learned a lot over the past 8 years and i’m in a different professional stage at the moment that 8 years ago it was just a dream. I’m a strong believer that these events are important to grow your “networking” and keep you updated on new trends/technology.
So how my calendar looks like so far?
