Innovation Weekend (Sneak Preview)
For many weeks now, folks have been eagerly questioning Craig Cmehil, Jason Cao, and myself about what the RIA Hacker Nite, What to expect at Insight Night – SAP TechEd Phoenix and Vienna and the Coming up a Level in Our Process Thinking will look like this year at SAP TechEd ’10 .
I must admit that my colleagues have delighted me by helping me realize a dream I had last year of inviting developers, business intelligence specialists and process design experts to pool their talents and harmonize their skills. This year, rather than have separate evening events for SDN, BPX and BOC we’ve decided to help pool talents and community in an event that will move (during the course of a 30+ hour event) a business case from idea to prototype and will expose our communities to a plethora of new technologies from inside SAP as well as from partners.
Beginning in Berlin and Las Vegas this year we will host and invite a select group of community members and TechEd attendees to a two (2) day event of innovation, collaboration, designing, hacking, and implementation.
This event will take place on the Sunday and Monday prior to the Tuesday openings of SAP TechEd ’10 in Berlin and Las Vegas and will engage developers and process experts as well as BI business users in social innovation through an open platform.
Where: Berlin and Las Vegas
When: SAP TechEd 2010 Berlin, Oct. 10 -11 | Las Vegas,Oct. 16 -17 Sunday and Monday both locations (30+ hour Marathon)
Who: SAP TechEd attendees/invited community members/developers/process experts/BI business users
What to expect?
Rather than my telling you, listen to this podcast which describes what’s in store for SAP TechEd 10’s Hacker Night, Insight Night and Process Design Slams.
