Blag’s best blogs picks from 2010

I started bloggin on SCN back on February 17, 2006. My first blog was Tasting the mix of PHP and SAP. Since that day I have wrote 120 blogs.


I have wrote about ABAP, HR, SCN and Scripting Languages…but my most rewarding blogs started on 2007, when I started to read all the blogs written in a year and gather them inside a blog.

You can check the past editions here:

      Besides that fact that you listed *my* little contributions a few times, I find this is a fantastic compilation of the best of the best.
      One addition? Rob Burbank's advice on how to ask a question in the forums (I can't pimp this great blog enough it seems)

      Best, as always,

      Really a nice job, thanks for sharing.
      I'm observing that the percentage of blogs posted by SAP Mentors seems pretty high but I'm also happy to find in the list a lot of other very smart guys.

      just kidding "I think for the first time Thomas Jung is missing in the list, I cannot believe about that. Have you argued with him?"

      happy Xmas Blag!
