So we are in final countdown and I want to hear from you, are you going to the SAP TechEd Amsterdam? Are you coming to the SDN Day? I myself am getting ready for it, it’s been hard work this year our goal of course being to make this the best year ever and making notes of the good and the bad to begin our planning for next year. Believe it or not we are already planning the next US TechEd as we finalize the plans for the this up and coming European TechEd and Bangalore is coming as well. So needless to say we are really busy, I did want to send a special thanks out to all our moderators and virtual moderators we can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and diligance in the community while we’ve been tied up with massive power points, layouts, schedules and what not. Sometimes I think about when I used to attend the conference and I think wow I thought life was hectic just picking out my schedule then trying to figure out how to keep track of it, now seeing things for the second time from the other side it gives me a whole new found respect for all of the teams involved that help Mark, Marilyn, me and the entire SDN Team really make the SDN Day and the SDN Clubhouse work out so well. For all of you who I meet in Las Vegas that are waiting for something from me – feel free to ping me and remind me, may not speed things up but reminders are always good 😉 So where are we right now? Well for one thing I am enjoying every free minute I have with family and friends, my son I’ve had to pull him off the computer he learned about all the cool things he can earn with his points. Seriously though the little outfit he’s wearing is one of the surprises Mark had in store for Edwin in Las Vegas, you should really check out the SAP Network TV – the WHOLE Demo Jam to see all about it. These are the little things that make this community so great – we all still have our human side in tact! OK back to what one can expect to find in Amsterdam. We’ll first and foremost you can find a gazillion of your fellow SDNers and BPXers, and a perfect way to do this is, is by using the Connecting at TechEd and the SDN Day! (you should have just gotten a mail about it today as well). This time around I even created a brand new group for everyone that is interested in “audio casting”, formly called “Podcasting”. I will be on site doing live audiocasting (I know this can be dangerous) as well as being available for anyone interested in learning how we do it here on SDN/BPX or wanting to even do there own to publish live as well. We also have live in Amsterdam, the Demo Jam ’06 Winners: Ed Herrmann Dan McWeeney in Las Vegas and the creator’s of SAPLink, be sure to stop by the clubhouse and meet them. RadRails joins SDN Day and the SDN Clubhouse in Amsterdam! will be joining us as well, so if you are the least bit curious about Ruby on Rails and the awesome RadRails plugin you must come and meet these two guys. Not to mention all of the SDN Day Sessions in Amsterdam October 17 taking place at the SDN Day! Which by the way is filling up so I seriously recommend you sign up quickly for it as spaces are limited and Las Vegas sold out.
