Cisco Live: Lenny Kravitz & Imagine Dragons! What?!

This post has a personal as well as corporate level. First the personal. I was recently selected as a Cisco Champion! A huge thanks to Cisco for allowing me access to the program and they have done an amazing job of incubating and developing a program to get their word out in new and creative ways. I threw the graphic label up on my site but I haven't really had the bandwidth to talk about it until now. Cisco has chosen a great community and it has been an awesome ride so far!

Ok, enough of that. The Cisco Champions got the scoop yesterday on some great upcoming announcements for Cisco Live! coming up May 18-22 in San Francisco. I'm hoping I can make it to the event but planning for the "day job" is still in the works. If want to register, HURRY UP! Deadline for Early Registration expires tomorrow, March 15th.

What is there to look forward too at the event?

Rowan Trollope (better known as the person who tries to keep Peder Ulander in line) did a great post yesterday on the Next Generation of Cisco Collaboration Experiences. This is the biggest announcement of new products since TelePresence and I can't wait to hear more about the products in the near future. A few highlights of the new products to look forward to at Cisco Live!

But who is playing the Customer Appreciation Event?!

Historically I haven't been a big fan of going to the customer appreciation shows (too many guys in too small a space) but there is NO WAY I would miss this one! Lenny Kravitz and Imagine Dragons playing at AT&T Ballpark! Yup, you heard it hear first. The event will be Wednesday night, May 21st. I can't wait! (Pro Tip: Either catch an early bus back to beat the lines or drink enough you won't mind waiting on transportation back. Of course, Uber or a Taxi is your friend as well!)
