This year the Social Solutions and Platforms Group teamed up with the DevNet team to present the first-ever devoted area for developers at a Cisco conference called the DevNet Zone at the 25th annual Cisco Live event in San Francisco! The zone was a fantastic success hosting over 8000 visitors during the week.
Several compelling apps were developed by 150+ hackers using Cisco Collaboration, Data Center & Networking technologies, including pre-release APIs and SDKs.
Over 6000 Learning Labs were completed by attendees interested in trying and testing new APIs, SDKs, frameworks, sandboxes and more.
Participants earned Cisco Arcade credits for completed labs, allowing them to shop for cool Cisco gear, including hats, shirts, raspberry pies, chargers, Kindles and more
The futuristic Spring Roll demo was a major draw – this Cisco innovation project leveraged 12 Telepresence screens and allowed multi-location collaboration in amazing new ways.
Several select partners showed technologies and programs on the showfloor, including a new Cisco partner, topcoder, helping drive crowdsourced ideas and code from Cisco customers, partners, and developers.
To continue rewarding customer and partner ideas and code related to Cisco technology, a series of Cisco Developer Challenges was launched as well.
