Just ask Chris Solomon. There were only three people who attended my SDN Day presentation at Tech Ed 2008 in Las Vegas. Chris knows this is true because he was one of them. The rest of you snubbed me – boo-hoo, sniff, sniff.
And guess what: if you’re entitled to attend SDN/LAbs day in Palo Alto this coming 5/29 (or can convince Mark to let you attend), you’ll have a second chance to snub me again.
Or, if you decide not to snub me, you’ll have a chance to learn what Chris told me he learned in Las Vegas, despite my well-known gift for obscurity;
a) why Supply Chain Management data structures and algorithms can be naturally extended to the seemingly unrelated field of bioinformatics;
b) why the NetWeaver stack is actually an appropriate IDE for development of scientific research applications (despite the snobbery of scientific programmers who won’t touch anything to the right of C++.)
Plus – you’ll be in at the beginning of two efforts that WILL eventually succeed:
i) the effort to convince SAP to begin its penetration of the bioinformatics vertical sector (with its desirable clutches of well-heeled customers in pharma and university);
ii) the effort to convince SAP to market the NetWeaver stack as a stand-alone IDE without SAP ERP apps/ddic (not just on a subscription basis but as a regular product.)
But, folks – that’s not all !!!
If I can convince SAP to bring Anton Wenzelheumer to Palo Alto for the day, you’ll all have the opportunity to see him tell me how full of baloney I am.
So – don’t miss this second chance to be part of the future, and also the possible chance to see some fireworks of the first order if and when Anton and I square off.
If you’re entitled to attend SDN/Labs Day, then attend!
If you’re not, ask Mark F if you can !
But I’m not holding my breath till I see you – sniff, sniff, boo-hoo.
