- Introduction to the SDN and BPX Community Netowork Day
- SDN and BPX Community status update
- Speed Networking: 3-4 rounds of 15 minutes where you get to know 4-5 new participants
- 2-3 rounds of BOF* Sessions derived from the networking sessions as well as collected already at the wiki. As there are lots of presentations during the Mastering SAP Technology event, the BOF sessions should focus on discussions and sharing of experiences.
- Summary feedback session and closing
We all will join the evening reception of the main Mastering SAP Technology event and continue our discussions there and throughout the next days.
I got asked about the BOF sessions on the wiki. Please add your name to all the sessions that interest you in the participants column. If we have more sessions than slots, we will select the most popular first. If there is a theme that is not covered yet, but you really would like to talk about it please add it to the list even if you don’t want to moderate it. We will try to find someone to moderate.
I hope to meet some of our Top Australian and New Zealand Contributors there too:

BOF Sessions (from Wikipedia):
Birds of a Feather: This idiom is a shortening of the proverb “Birds of a feather flock together.”, meaning that people (birds) of the same kind or interest (of a common feather) enjoy spending time (flocking) together. This proverb is believed to date back as far as Greek and Roman times, but has become commonly used as jargon by various groups since the nineteenth century. In the world of computing, BoF (Birds Of a Feather) can refer to: An informal discussion group. Unlike Special Interest Groups or Working groups, BoFs are informal and often formed in an ad-hoc manner. The acronym is used by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to denote initial meetings of members interested in a particular issue. A BoF session, an informal meet-up at conferences, where the attendees group together based on a shared interest and carry out discussions without any pre-planned agenda.
