It is getting tougher and tougher to be part of the Top 50 SDN Contributors. Actually today for the first time you need more then 500 points to be listed. We will introduce some new reports soon, but until then I thought I list you the top 100 and it takes 278 SDN points to be part of this list.

What are these points good for besides ranking? Well, if you are listed in this Weblog you get in for free to any one of the  SAP NetWeaver Technology Tour events. Now if you are in the top 10 of SDN, you can even bring a friend with you, who gets in for free too.

But you may think. What if I present at any of these events? I get in for free anyhow. This doesn’t help me? Well if you present and are in the top 100 you can bring a friend too.

Therefore you may want to hook up with Thomas Jung, not only is he in the top 10, but he will also present at the SDN Meets Labs in Palo Alto. He has two spaces on his bus to give away if he likes to.

Fine print: We would like to see you at one of the events, therefore you can’t send someone else at your behalf. We did not announce this beforehand, because we just want to honor the consistent contribution of the top SDN Contributors. Next round we may think of something else.

If you didn’t make the cut, don’t despair. For Walldorf/Rot there is still time to send in your session proposal to with the subject line: “SDN Meets Labs Walldorf/Rot, Session Proposal” and the following information: Session Title Session Abstract.

You can also register for the SAP Meets Lab Palo Alto event, send an email with the subject line “SDN Meets Labs Palo Alto Registration” to  We have just added the first cut of the presenter and session details for the Palo Alto event. It is going to be great to meet all these SDN Developers and bring them together with the SAP developers from the respective SAP Labs location.

And a big thank you to all you Top 100(0) SDN Contributors, you are the ones that make our SDN a happening and fun place and make me get out of bed every morning with a happy face. But not tomorrow, I am taking Friday off to go to San Diego meet my futurist friends down there, to talk about where to take the Future Salon and the Accelerating Change Conference in the next years.. See you Monday.

    We need a “Thomas Jung”, this side of the world for presentations as well.

    Also to highlight the pace at which questions are asked and answered is amazing. Especially the ABAP forum, 15,000 posts. And sometimes, you find out there are at least 4 answers for the same question in span of 2 minutes.

    Hi Mark,
    nice surprise ๐Ÿ™‚ And… what if someone presents /and/ is in the top 10(!)?! Can this person then bring *two* friends, too?! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Regards and hope to meet you in Rot, Detlev
    1. Mark Finnern Post author
      Hi Detlev,

      Yes, this is the idea. You are in the top 100 and you present, you can bring a friend. You are in the top 10 and present you can bring two friends.

      So who are your two friends?

      Let me know, Mark.

      Hi Gregor,

      Yes you will get vouchers. We are working out the details and your spaces are reserved, you can do your travel plans. I am super excited to see you all live and in color soon.

      Best, Mark.
      P.S. Registration in Palo Alto is done differently, so if you want to join us in Palo Alto please send your request to subject line: SDN Meets Labs Palo Alto.

      Different to popular perception, we have expanded the capacity in Palo Alto and so there are still a couple of spaces available. Hurry up.

      See you all there, Mark.

      1. Good to hear the spaces are reserved – eagerly awaiting to receiving my voucher so I can sign up ๐Ÿ™‚
        Can’t wait to so see you all as well …

    This is a great idea. However, it is not useful if you don’t really have the time to travel.

    It would be nice if SDN can cross promote with some of the SAP Press publications and give away some of the learning materials to the points system leaders according to their areas of expertise, i.e. portal books to top posters in the EP portal forum, etc.
