My Experience with SAP TechEd Bangalore 2013 – A Spectator to Topic Leader journey

Dear All,

I just wanted to share my TechEd experience with this blog to summarize what I experienced, whom I met and my key learnings and finally what I am planning for my future career road map.

What I experienced?

A superb Key note presented Vishal to start the SAP TechEd Bangalore 2013  and below are some of the keypoints that I understand and acquire from his speech.

  • River Definition Language (RDL) – A Design time application specification semantic language that would generate HANA and JavaScript based artefacts leading to light-weight application development.
  • Open sourcing SAPUI5 as OpenUI5
  • SAP Lumira and its journey from Polester -> Visual Intelligence -> Lumira
  • SAP Business suite on Hana (500+ customer adoptions)

This is my Second TechEd experience as I got a chance to attend SAP TechEd 2010 Bangalore as well. Things were changed a lot these years and I still have my TechEd 2010 pass and the related TechEd materials with me. here is my pass for both the events


This is how I changed in 3 years


Reputation and Recognition

One of the memorable moments for me in this TechEd is the recognition of contribution in SCN. I got a Topic leader recognition for BI Platform space with which I got stage recognition along with SAP mentors and SCN celebrities.



Lecture Sessions

I have tried to attend as much lectures as possible independent of the Technology now I am working with. I have concentrated exclusively on SAP BO/SAP Data services/ HANA related sessions. Below is the list of complete sessions of my interest.
