The only thing I knew about Düsseldorf before SDN & OpenFlow World Congress was a vague memory that it was a running joke on the 1960s sitcom Hogan's Heroes.
Now I know a lot more about it: It's a surprisingly pleasant little city, very walkable, with great public transit and bike paths, delicious food, and some nice scenery too. While I wouldn't recommend it as a vacation destination, if you've got some business there -- like, say, meeting with world telecom leaders to discuss the latest developments in SDN, NFV and OpenFlow -- get ready for a good visit.
