The SAP NetWeaver Composition Environment is becoming more and more a focus at TechEd, and because of this, SAP is going to offer a wide variety of sessions and topics dealing with building composite applications and otherwise realizing SAP’s eSOA concept.  But: the more options one has, the harder it becomes to decide which choices are the best.  Even reading and understanding all 30 CE session descriptions (hands-on and lectures) will take some hours to get an overview. Therefore we try to help you to find those sessions that fit for your purposes.

The best approach is a role-based approach.  You know very well if your role is more technical-oriented, like a software developer or architect, more process-oriented like a business process expert, or more decision-oriented like a development manager, product manager, or sales expert.  Based on these roles, we would like to make some recommendations that will help you avoid getting lost in the jungle of TechEd sessions.

This blog identifies the TechEd sessions that will suit people in more technical roles. See below a list of CE sessions that are beneficial for software developers and/or architects.
