Cisco Live 2022 Sessions with Grace Francisco

Organizational teams are rapidly changing in today’s climate. From staffing changes, to directional shifts in meeting customer needs, to changes in how to collaborate, teams and their leaders must learn to improvise and adapt swiftly to stay relevant within their organizations and the marketplace. In this panel session come hear team leaders from Cisco, our Customers, and Partners about the skills you need now to be part of building better teams today to drive smarter teams tomorrow. What goes into making an effective team? How has the pandemic and Great Resignation impacted team building? Why is building a diverse and inclusive team so important in today’s world?

Grace Francisco, Cisco’s Vice President of Developer Relations Strategy and Experience, will moderate the panel and dive into how being a part of and/or leading a team has changed. With more than 15 years of developer relations leadership experience, Grace was the developer evangelist for Microsoft's first enterprise developer tools offering and she led developer relations at Intuit, Yodlee, Atlassian, Roblox and MongoDB.

Tuesday, Jun 14
4:00 PM - 4:30 PM PDT
It has been said that “Every company is a software company.” What does that mean for the software developer? How much power and influence do they really have? How are software developers impacting the internal landscape of companies and their Ops focused colleagues? With the focus of operations to the cloud, can Ops and Developers truly be better together?

Software developers are becoming more and more important across organizations of all sizes and industries. There is a culture shift in the works that is bringing developer’s attention to operational tasks like security and observability. By breaking down these departmental and operational silos organizations can be better together and build more robust and secure applications from the start.

Learn from Grace Francisco, a 15-year veteran with experience in Developer Relations from across multiple industries including enterprise, fintech, and gaming, and hear how application developers are shaping the future of the corporate landscape. By being better together, all departments can help move your organization forward.
