Congrats @Julian@GregScarlett, and @sasas! Huge thanks to everyone for sharing your photos 🙂  


The Cisco Meraki Quarterly webinar is just around the corner (you can register here), and we’re excited to bring back the photo contest! In this contest, we ask you to submit photos based on a theme. The winning photo will be featured as the cover image for the Meraki Quarterly Webinar held on April 9th.


This round, we are looking to see your unique work from home setups. For those of us who are new to the remote-working life, some last minute cobbling together of office-like environments may have been in order. 


Living in a house with other novice teleworkers, I, for one, have had to line my closet with couch cushions and blast the soothing sounds of the ocean to secure some peace and quiet. It’s less home office and more hibernation cave.😳





From March 31st to April 8th, submit a photo via comment on this post showing us your work from home setup. We’d love to see all manner of work from home environments, but, of course, the more creative the better!


Here is an example of how @CarolineS is taking care of business with her co-workers at home:

My wife was already working from home when this all came down, and it just wasn't cutting it for the two of us to be in the same office together.  She would get a client call and need to leave the room (for privacy sake) or I would get on a conference call and she would need to leave the room (seeing a pattern here?).  So I moved into an alcove in our basement (where I had a desk already setup for another business), found an old 32" flat screen TV with an HDMI input, scrounged an old keyboard and mouse (*and something else...see pics!) and I was off to the races.  Added a BT headset for conference calls and an old HD USB camera for video (see, being a packrat DOES come in handy sometimes!! ;-).


My wife is wonderful in that she brings me breakfast and lunch down here, so I'm not forlorn.  I do have a spacious "rec room" at my disposal, so I could workout...but just haven't gotten there yet.  My fat arse does remind every so often to get up and stretch, which I do, and the "meeting room" (read "loo") is just steps away so I'm pretty well set.


Take care, everyone, and stay safe.  We will get through this!!

Here's my simple home office.  Working on Meraki MX68, then on the right side working on 3D and Python.  The red light is the Raspberry Pi.

My wife was ahead of me getting assigned to work from home so I got the backup office at the back of the family room!
