Demo Jam Singles Club
During Demo Jam at Las Vegas this year, Open Innovation Manager Craig Cmehil gave an impassioned plea for more customer submissions for Demo Jam. This is definitely something that we need and would be appreciated by almost everyone. I say “almost” because for hackers like me that also work for SAP it means it will now be more difficult for us to be Demo Jam finalists.
Not one to look at the glass half empty, this is a great opportunity for SAP Hackers to co-innovate. We now need to find a customer or partner to innovate and collaborate with. This can only be a good thing.
For those that have yet to see a Demo Jam, you can watch a recording here, you don’t know what you are missing, for those yet to submit, just do it. The feeling you get after presenting your ideas to a passionate crowd is incredible.
What do we need to do to get this going? My initial thoughts are for a Demo Jam Singles Club (forum) as a central place for people to meet each other exchange ideas and then start running with them. Tools such as Code Exchange and Streamworks are already available to facilitate the collaboration on the projects we now need a mechanism to bring the people together.
So perhaps all we need now is a Demo Jam Singles Club forum.
