Crazy For Code
The networking industry is embracing the importance of DevOps, if Cisco Live is any indication. The conference DevNet Zone was a hive of activity all week long, even hosting a 24-hour hackathon. Hands-on learning labs let attendees code APIs on working platforms and systems, and sessions on coding skills taught users to call REST APIs from Python and JQuery. Targeted at large customers and service providers, the beta version of Cisco's Dev-Innovate program began accepting applications. The program will provide customers with a half-rack of fully loaded gear ready for them to experiment for "accelerating innovation."
