So what took place this week?
This week was sort of a milestone for SDN and the SDN Community team, we held two online conferences on brand new platforms never before tested on the SDN community! The results, well I can’t say they were overwhelmingly good but I can’t say they were bad either. The first conference was a SDN Round Table, Session 1 – “SkypeCast” so you could have your voice heard by SDN, find out what was new happening, etc. Well we had 1 person join the call who knew what SDN was and several others who saw that we were “currently on” in the SkypeCast directory and popped in to see what it was about. For now I’m going to say the timing was bad and we’ll have to plan the next for a different time of day – suggestions are welcome!! The second conference was “Scripting Languages”, SDN and SAP and Andre presented the latest news and updates for everyone to hear. He’s in a workshop this week but amybe he’ll pop in and give everyone a brief update in either a blog or in the forums. Now this one was done using “InterWise” and well we had one that could not connect and well it was a bit problematic so perhaps we’ll have to rethink using this one or maybe do the “invitations” a bit differently. This was also the first week since I announced to everyone Getting in touch with a SDN Community Evangelist with me, I’ve had several online chats and a few telephone calls and it’s been great thank you to everyone who wants to help drive the future of SDN and is taking the time to speak with me, keep it up! There has also been a ton of information posted about TechEd and more Points! and TechEd and more Points! and who has a chance of going for free and all that so I hope everyone is taking the chance now to get there sessions submitted and register! On a side note, I heard that RadRails mentioned the whole SAP integration stuff in one of their Podcasts! Definite progress for the Scripting Languages Community
