TechEd Berlin: My Angle

There is no doubt that TechEd is a veritable SAPfest: tons of technological information, valuable innovation displayed and a serious quantity of SAP experts in one location.

I, however, love TechEd for an entirely unrelated reason. It’s the one time a year where the community has a chance for a physical meet up on such a large scale. Meeting old friends and making new ones or in many cases getting to finally see face to face those who have been virtual friends all year …

This year, I was able to finally meet: Otto Gold, Martin Gillet, Lior Schejter, Thomas Zloch, and numerous others. I also had the pleasure of seeing many old friends once again, such as Matthias Steiner (pictured below), Abesh Bhattacharjee and Julius Bussche


A very special meet up was organized and hosted by the one of a kind Jim Spath, to meet the SCN moderators, at the expert networking lounge (as announced in his post).  This interactive session was the place to ask questions, air issues and in general have a great conversation. Above all, it was a wonderful opportunity to thank all our amazing moderators for their daily work. We had an impressive crowd of caring community moderators and members actively participating. In fact we lapsed overtime since there was so much to cover!


TechEd and Innovation Weekend were awesome events on many levels. I was lucky to have had the chance to participate and represent the SCN team (along with my colleagues Marilyn & Laure).  I had many wonderful experiences, learned so much and came back with homework.  It was definitely an event to remember.

For those of you, currently in Vegas, I highly recommend taking advantage of the session set up and hosted by Stephan Johannes  to Meet the SCN Moderators: Las Vegas today at 17:30.


This tweet (below) by Otto Gold (@OttoGold), I received when arriving home sums up my TechEd feeling nicely – a family reunion.

      It's been a pleasure. Hectic, but still a pleasure.

      Hey Gali...

      I'm just speechless that you put "our" pic online for your blog. It's been so great so see you again and spend some time.

      Yes, it definately felt like "homecoming" or "familiy reunion" (as stated here: Impressions from TechEd 2010 Berlin)

      Looking forward to the next event 😀

      Best wishes, Matthias

      @Greg it has indeed been a pleasure (go BC3&5!)

      @Matthias it was wonderful getting to spend some time together. The fact that we all share the family feeling' solidfies this extra TechEd benefit. Proves the point further 😉

      BTW hope you're starting to enjoy some well earned down time now 🙂

      I'm looking forward to seeing you both at our next reunion
