Inspiring network engineers and developers

Cisco DevNet is Cisco’s comprehensive home of product learning and trial, services, and community for network engineers and developers working at all stages of the enterprise applications-DevOps-infrastructure delivery loop. This includes network engineers using automation, SRE/DevOps observing application performance and security, and enterprise software developers bringing Cisco’s security and observability expertise to bear on their solutions.

Cisco DevNet supports these technical practitioners with tools and products such as APIs, hands-on learning labs, live-tech sandboxes, and developer-focused events. The DevNet program has had great success over 10 years addressing core needs of network engineers seeking to automate interactions with network equipment. It is a vibrant community that continues to provide expertise, documentation, and learning experiences for members.

The DevNet story: 10 Years of enabling users to learn, code, and build The DevNet Story began when a gritty, startup-minded group of Cisconians set out to teach network engineers how to automate tasks and systems with APIs. Ten years on, DevNet has created a legacy of enabling users to think like developers and improve their systems. And, we’re just getting started. To celebrate a decade of DevNet, we created an interactive timeline to celebrate you, our users, and rally for 10+ more years of learning, coding, and building.
