Welcome to another week in the Ciena community! As this summer winds down, and fall slowly starts to make itself known, it's been great to see people making new connections and sharing their knowledge. Keep up the good work everyone! For those you who love music history, August 29th is a busy day. On this day, both Michael Jackson was born (1958) and in 1987, the song "La Bamba" is a number 1 hit for both Los Lobos the band, and Ritchie Valens (posthumously).
