Right off the bat, let me say that if you have never had someone come to you and say ‘Why don’t we just have Workflow…’ (sometimes followed by a very reasonable request) then maybe you don’t want to attend any of these sessions, or Expert Lounge sessions.
I will be hosting two ‘Expert Lounge’ sessions at SAPTechEd LV – with some special guest stars – and you know who you are, Thorsten, Ginger, Tammy.
The Wednesday Lounge and the Thursday Lounge will be an opportunity for people interested inSAP Workflow to meet other people interested in SAP Workflow. I have no set agenda for these sessions, but if you have any suggestions, let me know. Last year, there was no fixed agenda, and it was great! There was someone asking about starting workflows with Forms, which I had never done, and there was also someone there who had done it – and so a match was made. Besides that though, I think that SAP Workflow developers are so far-flung, that an opportunity to meet, face-to-face, is a beautiful thing.
Among the other sessions I will be attending is ‘Worldwide Ways of Workflow’ with my awesome ASUG co-volunteer, Tammy Powlas. Tammy (and I) will be talking about the results of a worldwide survey of SAP Workflow developers, administrators, and other hangers-on. It’s really fascinating stuff – to see how SAP Workflow is to pervasive in our world. This session will be held on Thursday, from 10:30 – 11:30.
And those of you who are fortunate enough to be ASUG members may recall that Thorsten Franz gave a terrific webcast earlier this year on ‘Process State .vs. Object State: Modeling Best Practices for Maintainability and Reusability’.Thorsten gave a terrific presentation, and he will give us the opportunity to learn from him again on Thursday, 9:15 – 10:15.
There are also some fascinating ABAP courses (CD110, Michele Crapo), the ever-popular (probably sold out) hands-on session CD266 (Do I need to say more about this one?) and of course, many, many more.
Oh, and if you answered ‘Hell yeah!’ to my earlier question, you can even trot over the Bellini room (where Bellinis will be served) and learn ‘Ten Tips for Debugging Workflows’ – presented by yours truly. I may not be able to answer every question you have, but I will work my darndest to try.
If none of the above float your boat, maybe the promise of super-secret swag will change your mind?
Or maybe you just need to get into the right frame of mind. Maybe you should watch this little Animoto I put together, as a pre-tribute to Lifehouse (I can’t wait!) and the many people who will make SAPTechEdLV a very memorable one for all of us.
See you there!
PS: I did throw some gratuitous pics into the video -but nothing bad, I promise.
