    Hi Mathias,

    I haven’t read your blog yet, I just glanced through it. Impressive formatting and content. I’ll read, digest and then let you know my thoughts if any later.

    Thanks and best regards,
    Bala

      Hi Bala,

      pls do so: take your time, digest and comment. That’s what I did, too 🙂

      As always, I’m sure you’ll have excellent feedback!

      Hi Bala,

      hm, seems my previous reply was vaporized. Anyway, all I wanted to say is thanks for taking the time to comment right away. And there’s nothing wrong with taking some time to digest and analyze, the opposite in fact… I mean, that’s what I did prior to writing this blog too 😉

      Looking forward to your feedback!

      Best regards,
      Matthias

      Thanks KK! 🙂

      Well, as most “storyteller” would answer: the story finds you and not vice versa. As such, I was just a medium to tell the story 😉

      Best regards,
      Matthias

    Matthias,
    This blog is, as usual, excellent.  You capture the spirit, innovation, and enthusiasm that are now the staples of SAPTechEd.  What’s lacking?  You have not given the prescription for those who suffer from Post SAPTechEd Withdrawal Syndrome (#PTWS) – so we will all just have to bookmark your blog, and return frequently to review.
    Thanks!

      You’re absolutely right Sue, #PSTW or #PSTW is definitely the only downside to the SAP TechEd experience as Gretchen put it so well last year.

      But then, that’s the thing that makes you want your next “fix” so badly, right? 😉

      Looking forward to our next encounter!

      Warm regards,
      Matthias

    I couldn’t think of any more comprehensive way of giving credit to so many other SDNers. Great writeup and a true community building effort even for those who didn’t attend.

    Thank you,

      Hi Greg,

      as one of my regular readers and more so, somebody who comments on the blogs you read, I am happy to hear that you liked this one and especially that you feel it’s valuable for those who had to miss out on Madrid!

      So, very heart-felt thanks for your continuous support and feedback!

      BR, Matthias

    Your intelligence, diplomacy, insight and graciousness makes your summaries and blogs something beyond comprehensive journaling of events.  If I could favorite this and rank it (which I hope to be able to do soon in the new SCN) I would give it highest ratings and bookmark to my favorite list.
    You continue to amaze with your keen eye and wit (no pun intended for the care you took to ensure that the #eidi #wit event was the success it seems to have been for many, many folks).  I am so grateful that we have an ambassador who deeply understands not only our technology, but the human beings engaged in creating it, working with it, implementing it and yes….. critiquing it.  Kudos and humble thanks.

    I would go in line with every word Marilyn wrote. I must also compliment cross roots to organize suyiich a big event in fashion manner. Configurring WIFI with Feria was note worth to mention .

      Hi Baskaran,
      thanks for speaking your mind!

      So, did you have issues with the WIFI? Despite the keynotes (with 10-20k devices) I found the WIFI to work very reliable for the vast majority of the event.

      However, knowing that WIFI was never meant to cater to such big numbers of concurrent devices I think we would have to wait for the 4th gen of wireless networks such as LTE so solve such problems, once and for all.

      Best regards,
      Matthias

    Hi Matthias,
    Wonderful blog beyond my words.
    Although I managed understanding every new technology mentioned here, I might have to read about Project River in details.
    The blog provided any background/supporting information related to the context.
    I enjoyed reading “Power of Pull”.

    Thanks much,

    Regards,
    Kumud

      Hi Kumud,

      🙂 Happy to hear such nice feedback!

      Well, I think it got obvious how excited I personally am about Project River and hopefully the two blogs I wrote about the topic are a good starting point to give people a high-level overview on what to expect. I certainly do intend to write more on the topic, which will be much more technical in nature. (And now, with the BIG events being over I’m positive I’ll find time for that soon!)

      “Power of Pull” by Jon Reed is definitely a great read and full of knowledge. #mustread

      Best regards,
      Matthias
