Chesapeake Netcraftsmen - Cisco Live! 2008 Orlando June 22-26 Booth #249

Terry Slattery
Meet in person Terry Slattery - Cisco CCIE No. 1026, the first CCIE in history, at the Chesapeake Netcraftsmen Booth #249 at Cisco Live! 2008, Orlando Florida, June 22nd to 26th. Terry earned the first CCIE Number 1026 on August 3rd, 1993 and last month recertified. Terry told yours truly: "I'll be hanging around the Chesapeake Netcraftsmen Booth #249, at breaks and various times."

"They will have 300 copies of my Top 25 Network Problems posters in their booth." "Besides myself, there will be a number of early CCIEs in the Netcraftsmen booth #249, some of whom were instrumental in training a large number of people while they worked with me at Chesapeake Computer Consultants (known as Chesapeake - see for the logo - the company is no longer in business and Netcraftsmen is the follow-on company with many of the same people)." "Pete Welcher - CCIE No. 1773 Routing and Switching who has an incredible following of people and who writes about a lot of topics." "Marty Adkins - CCIE No. 1289 Routing and Switching who was one of the Chesapeake Senior Instructors and who planned the CCIE training program at Chesapeake. He has been instrumental in training a large number of CCIEs." "The old Chesapeake was an incredible place to work and to receive network training. Too bad that it doesn't exist any more." "Chesapeake Netcraftsmen now does consulting and they are still some of the best consultants in the industry."

In Terry's most recent blog story: The Original CCIE Lab's Plaque Terry stated: "Stuart Biggs - who was awarded CCIE number 1025, was able to track down the original CCIE lab's number plaque and get a picture (see below)."
