Cisco didn’t just build the Internet. We keep building it. First the Internet of computers. Then the Internet of people. Now the Internet of Everything. Our technology changes the way the world works, lives, plays and learns. But our edge doesn’t come from technology. It comes from our people. It begins with the knowledge that tomorrow starts here.

Event details

Come along to the Cisco workshop hosted in collaboration with the Southampton Bright Futures Society to find out more and take part in an interactive session into what goes into creating and launching a software produce. While a modern software product might contain hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of lines of code, writing this code is only part of the work which goes into creating the product. 

Paul Witty, a software engineer from Cisco, will talk through what it has taken to bring the latest version of an application from its conception at the start of the year, to its delivery this month, as well as what it’s like working for one of the largest tech companies in the world!

Even if you aren’t studying an IT related degree there are lots of roles and opportunities and Cisco are looking for students with a range of degrees and skills. Cisco believe that changing the future requires more than just a special ability. Playing and thinking outside the box is an essential part of what we do, meaning your mindset and personality are just as important as your skills.
