Did you notice that the first three SDN Members have crushed through the 1000 contributor points mark. Thomas Jung, Craig Cmehill and of course Stefan Klensch are leading the pack. Congratulations to all of you! They will each get a $50 Amazon gift certificate.
Of course they are also first in line for the World 184 : SAP 193 for the top contributors. The deadline for points is next week Friday the 24th at midnight Pacific Standard Time. We did that so you are not tempted to work through the weekend and rather spend it with family and outdoors instead of with a computer 🙂
I am not totally sure how we will measure it, guess someone has to stay at home and make a screenshot at midnight next Friday. That will of course only be a preliminary result, because there may still be some code samples or articles in the pipeline that made it in time for the counting, but were not processed yet.
You have just one more week to get your content published that you have somewhere on your hard disk, so hurry up. It is also high time to go back to all the questions that you have asked in the forums to check the answers you received andSpread the Love! they deserve. Remember, if you don’t do it, there are seven years of bad *** ahead of you. It starts slow, but it goes downhill real fast. Believe me I was there; in ’96 I was too lazy to go back and give recognition where it was due and man, were those 7 years long. I wouldn’t jinx it if I were you.
One thing is also interesting. In the top 20 of all contributors, there are still 10 SAP employees and 10 non-SAP SDN members, but there is not one SAP employee in the top 5. I’m barely holding on to my spot in the top 10. (But I don’t count towards the prizes.)
It just proves that it’s true what they say: Walldorf or the whole of Europe for that matter closes down for August. [Very civilized if you ask me :-)] Or maybe everyone is busy preparing their killer presentations for the SAP TechEds 🙂
