After weeks of planning, talking, hoping and waiting it finally happened, I didn’t say anything before as I did not want to jinx things but in another “first ever” moves SDN has helped to facilitate another ground breaking event inside of SAP. Previously I blogged about the excellent RadRails joins SDN Day and the SDN Clubhouse in Amsterdam! to the Amsterdam SDN Day and SAP TechEd, that was followed shortly after by the announcement of a whole SDN Welcomes Ruby, Ruby on Rails and RadRails! devoted to Ruby and Ruby on Rails. Now continuing in this tradition, I am very excited about this, yesterday the 21st of August, 2006 at 16:00 CET a telephone conference was held between 5 people, it would have been 6 but Andre could not make it. The 5 people who were there: Craig Cmehil (me), Thomas Becker, Piers Harding, Eduard Koucký and Michaela J. Most of you know Piers from his blogging and activities here on SDN, is also the developer/creator of the SAPRFC connectors for the Ruby, Python and Perl languages. Eduard, for those of you familiar with PHP is the developer/creator of the SAPRFC connector for PHP. Michaela is someone I actually owe a huge debt of gratitude to for making herself available for this call – above and beyond her normal call of duty. She was present to help us with German/Czech and English to ensure with such a diverse group we were all on the same page! Thank you again!!! Thomas is the project/team lead for the RFC SDK group here in Walldorf for SAP. This of course is one of the primary building blocks for what Piers and Eduard do. So what was this meeting all about? Well I’m sure you probably figured it out based on who was present but just in case let me tell you. Thomas has invited both Piers and Eduard to join discussions with his team about the RFC library and to begin a channel of open communications between them in order to ensure that both Eduard and Piers have the information they need to continue to do what they do best! This means that we can start to see some amazing things happening with the various connectors in the future!
