Cisco Live – The Complaints

I love going to Cisco Live every year. Without question, it’s my favorite event of the year. It’s a great event with great people and great things to do. With that said, let’s look at what could have been a bit better this year.

FEMA and Your Business Continuity Plan

I passed the ROUTE exam a few days/weeks/months/something ago and decided to pursue certifications of another sort for a while. The wife and I are trying our best to help the community through our ham radio training, so I decided to go down that path a bit further. One thing I was interested in doing is to do EmComm during declared emergencies. That meant I had to take two FEMA courses online to be allowed in the EOC. I thought they would be terribly boring, but I found them to be quite familiar.

Recap – Cisco Live US 2014

I don’t think I’m going to give a direct review of Cisco Live US this year. The conference was great with lots of stuff going on, but I really can’t contribute any more than the vast library of other posts on the subject. What I will do, though, is give my take on where I think the conference is headed. These are all my thoughts and have little to do with reality in some cases.
