You all made it by far the best Cisco Live that we’ve been to thus far. We wanted to put together a video to help remember the night, and say thank you for being such great, loyal customers. We will be doing a party of at least this same magnitude next year. I say magnitude because that’s probably the best way to describe the night. This wasn’t just some low budget wings-n-beer social, we had a sushi chef, a taco stand, and top-shelf drinks being served. We actually had to have them bring in more food at one point because more people showed than we had planned for. It was a truly magnanimous party. At the peak we had 247 people on that roof (capacity was 250 at any one time). People came and went all night – and all-in-all we had almost 500 people show up for our customer appreciation party. All of INE was there, and we truly enjoyed meeting each one of you face-to-face – something that we can’t always do online. We really cannot wait to see all of you, plus many new faces at our customer appreciation party at Cisco Live next year in Orlando. If you didn’t happen to make it this year in San Diego, we certainly hope you can make it out to our event next year in 2013. Who knows, we may even do this in London or Melbourne next year as well.
By the way, stay tuned as early next week we lay out our CCIE Data Center training strategy and rack rental plans!
About Mark Snow, CCIE #14073:
Mark Snow has been actively working with data and traditional telephony as a Network Consulting Engineer since 1995, and has been working with Cisco Call Manager and voice-over technology since 1998. Mark has been actively teaching and developing content for the CCIE Voice track since 2005, and the Security track since 2007. Mark's story with both data and voice technology started out quite young, as he began learning around the age of five from his father who was a patented inventor and a research scientist at AT&T Bell Laboratories. Mark started out on Unix System V and basic analog telephony, and went on from there to large data networking projects with technologies such as Banyan Vines, IPX and of course IP, and large phone systems such as Nortel 61c, Tadiran Coral, Avaya Definity and of course Cisco Unified Communications Manager in both enterprise and 911 PSAP environments across the US and internationally. Mark is also an accomplished pilot and punched his ticket in 2001. When Mark isn't learning, labing, consulting or teaching, he can be found either piloting or possibly jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, hanging off a rock somewhere or else skiing out west. He also might just be enjoying a quiet day at the beach with his wife and two wonderful young kids, Ryleigh and Judah.
