2006 TechEd Las Vegas Video Blog

Yes it’s true, Dan and I did indeed mug Cmehil in Vegas and steal his video camera; however, his pain is your gain. We think his suffering was a small price to pay to bring this 21 minute video extravaganza from the secret archives straight to the SDN community.

The video features some exciting highlights such as:

  • Craig Cmehil evangelizing even after losing his voice
  • Craig introducing some other behind the scenes, hard working SDN crew members
  • Marilyn Pratt welcoming everyone to the BPX community
  • The one and only Rich Heilman caught in action checking ABAP forums and discussing SDN day in the SDN clubhouse
  • Tarun Telang talking about having fun with SAP and his experiences at demo jam
  • Chillin’ with Mark Finnern as he talks about SDN day and TechEd preparations
  • Ryan Lowe from talking about scripting languages, TechEd, and his first impressions of SAP in general
  • And of course, us showing off our demo jam trophy and talking too much as usual 🙂

You can also use this link to check out the video on veotag where we have provided quick, jump to highlight links. Enjoy!

  • Hi Ed and Dan,

    I only stumbled over your video now and really like your relaxed style. Brought back lots of good memories. Nice to have captured Rich while doing his magic. The only one missing is Thomas Jung, who was at one of the booths in the clubhouse often.

    See you next year, Mark.
