Currently, DevNet developers are writing commercial applications specific to Cisco product. Three such developers are Citrix, Davra Networks and Glue Networks.
But there are plans to include open source development as well, including OpenStack and OpenDaylight, which will be added to the DevNet community within the year, Wee says.
Cisco is careful to not position DevNet as an alternative to open source communities, she says.
"We do not want to take away from those communities," Wee says. "Developers go where developers go. We're creating additional tooling and adapters to hook (open source) into Cisco equipment. We don't want to create a separate community, we want them to have access to Cisco's assets."
