Community Happenings: Week Ending 9/2

Blog Post created by margarita.giraldo Employee on Sep 6, 2016

Happy Tuesday! I know we usually do these on Mondays, but I delayed this due to the holiday weekend in the US and Canada. For today's fun fact, I learned that on September 6, 1522, one of the ships under Spanish explorer Ferdinand Magellan's command, came home to Spain three years after it left to circumnavigate the globe. These kind of amazing feats long ago are inspirational after a long holiday weekend.


If you have any suggestions on things you'd like to see more (or less) of, please feel free to share with Margarita Giraldo or post in About the Ciena Community
