500 individuals from around the globe have earned a DevNet certification Within sixteen days of launching the new Cisco DevNet certifications.
DevNet started six years ago with the ambitious goal of creating a community of developers who could innovate and succeed with the programmable infrastructure. Only a few of Cisco’s products had APIs at that time, and the team knew Cisco and the industry would develop in the next 5 years.
They focused on two audiences:
1) To reskill their loyal networkers so they could fully leverage the networking paradigm that was to come, and
2) To attract new developers and ecosystem partners by giving them a new way to engage with Cisco – through its APIs!
Today, all of Cisco’s products are programmable and have APIs.
