First SDN Weblogger/Contributor Meet in Walldorf

Is SDN your browser home page? Are you an SDN    Weblogger? Did you write double digit forum    posts in the last month? Do you live in or around Walldorf or will you be    in the vicinity Thursday in a week the 15th of July? If you can say Yes to three    of the above questions, then please come by the SAP headquarters for the first    SDN Weblogger/Contributor Meet in Europe. As promised in my Notes from the First SDN Weblogger/Contributor Meet in Palo Alto here are the details.

I am really looking forward to it, because the top European SDN Webloggers    and Contributors will be there in person. In no particular order so far the    following people are coming: [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken], Stefan    Klensch, Karin    Schattka, Oliver    Stiefbold, Ivo    Totev, Brian    McKellar, Benny    Schaich-Lebek (who will be on vacation, but takes a break from it for our    meet).

Current Agenda:


  • Big round of introduction

  • Outside SDN perspective (Hope to have someone to cover this part)

  • Weblogging Tips and Tricks

  • When to write an Article when a Weblog

  • How to Write well on the Web

  • SDN live: The SAP TechEd

  • Introduction to current status of Contribution Point System

  • Brainstorming: What is good, what could be improved within SDN collaboration.   

If you are an SDN contributor, via Weblogs, Articles, Code Samples or Forum    Posts and would like to take part in this session please send an email to:    Space is limited and people will be selected according to their contributions    on SDN.

      it's great to see that SAP takes weblogging seriously. May I suggest some topics for the meetup:

      - Consider getting rid of the need for registration (or at least provide a full post RSS feed)
      - Enable trackbacks and pings to enable interaction with the rest of the blogging world

      I guess you can't do much about the dependance on Internet Explorer, but that's a bad thing.

      Oh, and don't forget to post extensive coverage of the event 😉

      Hello Mark,

      these weblogger meetings are really a great idea.
      Just a small hint: The link to Brian McKellar seems to be pointing to someone different (is it genetic engineering? 🙂  ).

      Naa, Karin is just more photogenic (even if there is no photo)! Like somebody said, mine looks like it was taken after a long night of SDN. If you really insist:
      bye, brian

      Well, I'll be in Walldorf that day but have meetings all day. Where will the evening activities occur? Surely this can not be a meeting of bloggers without dinner or at least a stop by a bier garden?
