My 4th TechEd…and why it feels like the first time

I have attended a lot of SAP events…3 TechEd’s, 1 Sapphire, 1 DKOM, 2 World Tour and 1 Run Better Tour…this year is going to be my 4th TechEd…so why it feels like it’s my first time?


For me, TechEd is always an adventure, there’s always something new and something cool. You get into a lot of sessions, you get to meet new friends and you also meet with old friends, and most important, you get huge amounts of fun.


Have you seen those TV Ads where the parents told their kids…”We’re going to Disney!”…and the kids start screaming and jumping with you…well…you can imagine how I go when I get approved to attend Teched…I got really crazy! For me…TechEd is the Disney for Geeks.


If you have never been to a TechEd, then you’re missing so much…if this your first time attending, then you’re life is going to change…if you have attended more than once, well…get ready to be amazed all over again.


For me, it’s 10 days more to TechEd Las Vegas…and I can’t wait…I want to start packing and leave to the airport right now…but of course I can’t…my wife and daugther would kill me right away…but still…I can’t hide my emotions -:)


I you have meet me in TechEd before, then you know what I’m talking about…if you haven’t meet me before, you’re going to realize that I can’t stop smiling through the whole event…it might be funny to watch me smiling like that, but what can I say…TechEd is TechEd…and the magic in there doesn’t ends when the event is over…you will count the days for the TechEd of next year…


Enogh of this…hope to meet you all at TechEd Las Vegas! And if you’re going to other TechEd locations…have fun! learn! share you knowledge! meet people! and most important…spread the magic of TechEd -:)

      I am jumping up and down, too!  Each time I think about it.  Which, by the way, is a lot lately.  The count down is on!  Nine days until InnoJam!

      See you there,

      What a blast!  I never attended before, and then I became an ASUG volunteer and started attending.  I attended 2007, 2008, missed 2009 due to a leg injury, and attended last year's.

      Looking forward to seeing you 🙂

      ... but for me it is going to be my 5th TechEd in the US; 3rd one as a speaker. I still remember very well my first one in 2007 - it was a step into the bigger world, which I hadn't known existed. I started reviewing my shirts today for packing - which one to take: my "I'm blogging this on SDN" first recognition shirt, or "Community Day 2007", or my first SAP Mentor shirt plus a choice between many HP shirts used to present at TechEd in the past... One of toughest choices in preparation for the event 😉
