My Schedule for Cisco Live 2014

Everything is in order for my trip to Cisco Live 2014 in San Francisco.  Conference passes are purchased.  Hotels are reserved.  Flights are booked.  It’s going to be a great event, and I can’t wait!

Note:  My wife will be with me again this year, and she is trying to get a tour group going to look around the city while others are in sessions.  If you want to be in on the tourist action, contact her via Twitter.

As per tradition (a new tradition, but a tradition nonetheless), here is my schedule for the week.  Also as tradition, I’m bound to only do about 20% of what’s documented here.  If you’ve ever been, you know what I mean.  Here we go.
