We’re putting on the final touches, and getting set to roll out the ‘red carpet’ in-person and virtually for this very first unconference on September 15! I can’t express how excited we are to host this event at the SAP Labs – Vancouver office.

This started out as a nice-to-have, fun-to-do event to bring local members of the SAP Community Network together. What it has evolved to become is an ‘Open House’ and a mini-conference with 15 sessions in 3 tracks that cover:

Those links above are your access points to join sessions in each of the tracks. Note that a couple of these sessions will not be available for remote participation due to confidential content, so you have to join in-person to get the scoop.

So, what’s on the agenda? Check out the event wiki page for full details.

There is still some space available so please register ASAP.

See you…here!

    Godspeed Jason, all the best for your SIT.

    After SITBRU held yesterday, I’d advise the following :

    – It was a clever idea to have 20+ break in am and pm as it was in fact used as ‘contingency buffer’ of course we were never ‘on time’ 🙂

    – Have your own twitter wall and get it on the air and project it aside main slides. I’ll put you in touch with Belgian guys who provided us that) > attendees loved it !

    – Provide Guest WIFI so they can do demo and tweet (and perhaps email 🙂 )

    – We had issues with Adobe Connect , as you are at SAP site you will probably use a Polycom, else, test it in advance. We ran into issue and had to call back on a cell phone, plugged into speakers… (the ‘MacGyver’ attitude).

    – Have a moderator checking online meeting rooms, monitoring questions, saving chat, recording sessions perhaps (no editing is allowed as I have been told, afterwards) and save chat, plus count number of attendees).

    – Sounds silly at first, but provide papers (just a few pages) and a pen (I provided my and the location too so we end it up with redundant material 🙂 )

    – Have you been in touch with SAP PRESS (potential sponsor) to get a SIT 10% courtesy discount on all book ? And perhaps (but I guess time is now against you a few free books).

    – Have enough refreshments (yes we talk a lot and thus are thirsty) but our refresh bar was emtpty inbetween sessions… (still I don’t get why).

    – Have a few mates make 2-4 minutes videos (flip cam or else) with attendees on why they attend, what are they expectations, what they actually get out of SDN (samples questions) etc… then post it into SDN.
    I have done same with a few speakers too 🙂

    – Start your flickr pic stream (for example http://www.flickr.com/photos/mgillet/sets/72157624911428810/ then after your SIT, post a few into our Community group :

    – Also nice to have, have you got some SAP Mentors onboard ?

    And most important, after your gr8 day, provide your feedback and views plus convert them into the ‘How to organize a SIT’…

    http://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/display/events/How+To+Create+Your+Own+SAP+Inside+Track

    My five cents, more to come in my full debriefing but first, I need to ‘recover’ 🙂

    All the best,

    Martin

      Hi Martin,

      I am certainly benefiting by following in the footsteps of SIT-organizers, like you, and picking up your gems of knowledge. Thank you for sharing so many great tips with me. Got your emails as well and will follow up where possible with the time I have. Recovery-period is something I hadn’t planned for, but it makes a lot of sense. I’ll need this too! Looking forward to your full debrief of SITBRU!

      Thanks,
      Jason
