This talk is part of the System Research Seminar series


Abstract: What do you know about Cisco? What are they doing these days? Could Cisco be relevant to my education and interests? You might know us from our routers/switches and other lines of networking hardware, but there is much happening here that most are unaware of. Cisco’s roots are in the hardware space but has since grown into the software space – touching many technologies such as security, IoT, collaboration, data center, and even education. In this talk, I’ll be covering some of Cisco’s history and origins, what our company is doing today and growing towards, and provide some insights into my job and how industry trends in software engineering shapes the work I do everyday.
