lang=”en-us”>Sometimes little things can make a big difference.
lang=”en-us”>Today was a good day. You might ask yourself what or who Ibai is and why he is important..
I do not know Ibai myself.
Every now and then I have seen his name pop up in the SAP Business One Forum asking a question or answering another.Just like mine. lang=”en-us”>
For all I know Ibai is a spanish developer with the will to help with whatever assets lang=”en-us”>he has lang=”en-us”>.
lang=”en-us”>Today I received this email (Sorry for publishing this Ibai, but I just had to) lang=”en-us”>:
Well, I don´t really mind of SAP points, and my experience with SBO is not
as big as yours.
But perhaps I could help you. If it is not implementing it, I could be
helpfull for translating the add-on to spanish.
If you are interested, just write me back.
Thanks for this great idea.
Just to make a point here: My guess is that probably 90 percent of the people reading in the developers network do not consider themselves experts at what they do. Everyone coming here is looking for answers (if they had all the answers, why come here in the first place). However, a lot of the readers just consume and do not contribute, although contribution is the main point of this platform. Every now and then everyone (every developer at least) crossed that one little problem which takes ages to solve and really gets at peoples nerves. Now there are two things one can do.
The first option
The first option is not to tell anyone, it is a company secret, it took such a long time, just put it into that little imaginary chest and lock it up.
I agree that sometimes that is a useful and necessary decision in the world of information technology, since it gets you (and your company) a head start.
The second option
The second option is to drop it off here (or in other places if you think that it does not belong here). Here other people can profit of the time you spent and not run into the same problem again. They will love you for it.
Lets get back to Ibai and me…
We are both not experts (By the way, for all I recall, all of the people I met at the SDN meetup said they did not consider themselves experts either). However Ibai has made the decision to contribute and mentioned an important fact:
All this is not about points, this is about knowledge sharing.
All my points go to you, Ibai.
And thank you for making my day a lot brighter.
