Day Two at TechEd Vegas – NetWeaver Gateway is Hot
Day 2 at TechEd Vegas continues to be really hot for SAP NetWeaver Gateway.
CD160 – SAP NetWeaver Gateway development for Beginner hands-on session was a big hit. Here is some comment from the trainer Jin Shin: “The session was completely full and there were a lot of people on the wait list trying to get in. Total of thirty laptops with 2 per laptop and they were fully occupied. All the “overflow” seats in the back (about 15 or so – no laptops) were occupied as well. We received a lot of positive comments on the session. “ This session will be repeated one last time on Friday 10:30 am – 12:30 PM.
Today there was a rare opportunity to meet the chief product owner Stephan Herbert and chief solution manager Adi Kavaler of NetWeaver Gateway and Duet Enterprise together in one session. They co-presented CD204 – SAP NetWeaver Gateway and OData in Detail. Afterwards in the Gateway road map Q&A session they were surrounded by a big group of highly engaged audience. CD204 will be offered one more time this Friday 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM.
Even Bjoern Goerke, head of SAP Technology and Innovation Platform Core, presented NetWeaver Gateway in his session today.
