This is Bernd. Bernd Überbacher —>>>>
In the second when the photo was taken, he just heard that he won. He won the International NetRiders 2013 for his region. We are very proud that the Tyrolean Cisco Networking Academy Student from HTL Innsbruck won the Study Trip to Silicon Valley.
He is one of 19 NetAcad Students from 15 different countries. In the competition 10.000 students from more than 97 countries took part. I have to say this again and again: My respect !!!
Now he will be packing his suitcase because tomorrow morning, he is on his way. From Innsbruck to Frankfurt and then to San Francisco. Next week he will visit Silicon Valley and Cisco Headquarters.
After a full program he will know what you can eat at the Banana Leaf, if the Google Campus is really as described, meet the people who are developing the Packet Tracer and if Pier 39 is a better attraction than the Cisco Campus. This trip will bring insights for his professional career and the chance to meet interesting people.
Bernd will let us know how he is doing in Silicon Valley himself.
