Community Projects – If You Could Only Leverage What Your Peers Know

In the past, I have not been a frequent blogger or twitterer but every time I posted it was about keeping the balance between valuable contributions and their corresponding points.

During last year’s TechEd we adapted the recognition program to support the school feeding project with donations to remind us of the altruistic attitude of communities.

A few weeks ago we added an annual point counter since we want to focus on the most recent contributions. As soon as you have earned 250 points in 2008 you will be an active Top Contributor and will receive your Community Badge.

Our newest initiative merges ‘Topic of the Month’ with the ‘Community Projects’ and provides it with a home (see below).

This provides more structure and commitment from SCN to the already existing Community Projects.

Community Projects:

  • Focus on specific topics (e.g. How to shorten installation of NW CE)
  • Will use one type of channel /format only (e.g. project only via articles)
  • Will be communicated on homepages and via the SDN / BPX Newsletters
  • Will be announced in a blog post under the new topic ‘Community Project’
  • A summary will be provided to cover the results & findings
  • Will address all levels of experience (not just for experts)
  • All valuable contributions will receive double points

  • Hi Michael, being in “SAP” Developer Network, I would like to see some “SAP” contribution to community projects… I mean… not just a place to write a wiki list regarding SDN members projects… IMO “SAP” should contribute in Community Projects with … “SAP CODE” I don’t see any “SAP” code contribution there.
    • hi Ingacio, happy to hear from you via this channel. Community Projects address individuals and not companies. Pls take a look into the many contributions of SAP colleagues, who do this in most cases in their leisure time.

      The main reason for this revised approach has been, to ease contributions from the community by providing you all with some more structure. Better described and focused projects and a common home would ease the findability too.

      Regards, Michael
