Finally I am back. Well almost. I am on the flight, no not from Hawaii that was unfortunately a week ago already. I am flying back from a very exciting DKOM (Developer Kick Off Meeting) that happened the last two days in Walldorf.

After coming back from my honeymoon I spend just one day in the Palo Alto office and then the best wife of all was kind enough to let me jump on a plane to join a gathering of the top 500 movers and shakers in the SAP development organization in Walldorf Germany.

No, I am not one of them, but I helped organize the event.

Of course the content is off records, at least for now. What I can say that some really exciting stuff was shown especially in the area of BPP and ESA. Quite some impressive modeling stuff too. I better stop here before I cross the off record line.

There are some exciting times ahead of us. Being around SAP for a couple of years my guess is that most of the stuff will be shared at TechEd, or may be even before here on SDN, so stay tuned.

Now being back and no other trip in sight, at least for the next two weeks ๐Ÿ™‚ I am happy to be part of the SDN universe again. Judging from the amount of Weblog as well as forum posts I get the impression that you didn’t even miss and do quite well without me. That’s how it should be.

Any suggestions what I should focus on first?

This post being written in mid air I guess I am the second member of the oh so prestigious SDN Mile High Club (Shai was first). T-Shirts to come soon. (Actually I think we should create a SDN Mile High Plus for all SDNers that manage to write their Blog post crammed into economy class:-) It’s comparable to riding the Tour de France by bicycle versus the motorcycle. In good FAB fashion I guess I will spray-paint the + on my T-Shirt.

But first we should catch up with all these great SDN contributors that crossed the 10K 5K 2K 1K 0.5K and 0.25K mark in the last months and haven’t gotten their T-Shirts yet.

P.S. I get often asked, whether Shai is actually writing his Weblog posts. Yes he does, sometimes we help him with the formating, add some links, but the rest is uncensored Shai.

P.P.S. Not sure if this one counts as an SDN Mile High post. I wrote it in the air, saved it in draft mode but before I could mark it as final my battery died ๐Ÿ™ Oh well, there will be another flight.

    Not sure if this one is close enough to count as the “Mile High” club but I would personally count it, in the interest of democracy any other SDNers willing to back him as well or does everyone say it didn’t count?

    P.S. – Welcome back Mark!

        Well, the community is the best judge of blog value, but I for one am so relieved to have him back, I’d reward points just for the effort, lame battery and all.

        Welcome back, Mark.
        I’m sure everyone is glad to see you.

          Points he can have but addition to the Mile High club with our currently single member Shai – well what does everyone else say – I say it was a noble effort OK, so we all know he was in Germany and that means a plane ride so what do you say guys?

          I agree with Brad!  He always says the right thing.

          [sorry guys I couldn’t resist ๐Ÿ™‚ ]

          BTW – done with display names, not with a different user.

    i’m curious – how _do_ we get our t-shirts? are they something we get only when we attend SDN activities?

    looking forward to getting it anyway,
