Cisco Live Schedule


Last year was my first year at Cisco Live! and, boy, did I learn a lot.  One of the greatest things I learned was to try and schedule similar sessions within the same half day.  The reason behind this is that I found myself jumping from Security to Virtualization to SDN, all within the same morning.  By lunch each day, I found my head full of knowledge that I didn’t have time to properly digest because the squirrel was already hopping in a different direction.

This year, I have found that many of the major Cisco Live! Bloggers have posted their schedule.   This makes a lot of sense to me.  It should at least make me stare at it a few more times to make sure I learned my lesson from last year.  At the very least, it should quite the naysayers about what really happens during Live!
