CiscoLive! 2020

Like many events, CiscoLive 2020 was pushed to an all digital format.



So, I have to repeat this again; Online events should have always been an option at this point. I understand the energy of real people. It's fun to talk to random, like minded people!

However, these events take place in a world of growing inequality, especially in America, where people who want to learn, network, and improve, might not have the money for this.



Here's a compromise; Have a few panels streamed. The keynotes, maybe 2 from each room (More on that later) per day. A few fun online games like this.

This goes for CiscoLive, San Diego Comic Con, and Grace Hopper. Any big event; Make it accessible.


There were 4 channels; Possibilities, Innovation, IT Heroes, and IT Leadership. Talks were separated based on categories.



Here was my schedule (After the Keynotes);


I left empty spaces to take breaks, or hop around to see what caught my eye. I missed the Unleashing Innovation panel, luckily, replays are being hosted on the site.

There were Peerconnect groups set up, but everyone was mostly on Twitter.


Peerconnect


It was a boisterous, engaging group from all over the world. I met a lot of cool folks! I was even mentioned by the Cisco Live Twitter for my continuous engagement!

I'm first!
I also won something pretty sweet...Coming soon!



My personal favorite bit of information was the cool WebEx Assistant, and you can use the free trial for 90 days! Talk to your Cisco representative.

Some more WebEx: The Room Phone


Finally, the fun ended with a performance by several groups...including my favorite band, Fall Out Boy!

#StreamMANIA



Well, 2 out of 4 isn't bad.

I really enjoyed learning about up and coming products to use and troubleshoot, while talking to others.

Contactless Tech’s Role in the New Guest Experience ft. Intelity and The George

 Contactless hospitality technology is growing. You want to get away, and you'll be damned if a little thing like a deadly virus will stop you! But you still don't want to touch things. Ew. During the chat between INTELITY CEO Robert Stevenson and THE GEORGE Director of Operations Kerrie Hunter, you’ll learn how the historic boutique hotel has adapted a mobile-first guest experience in the wake of COVID-19—and how they see contactless technology affecting the future of hospitality. I don't remember how I found INTELITY (probably hoping to score a position with them), but I liked them enough to stay on the e-mail lists.
