Wow it’s hard to believe that DemoJam has been going strong now for what? Over 10 years!?! Well this year at the SAP d-code (formerly SAP TechEd) the DemoJam is there and it’s going to be strong! So many fond memories over the years…
So many winners, so many teams, so many submissions and this year I think will be even better!
We’ve modified the rules this year, we wanted to take into account new uptake in the coding challenges, hack-a-thon style events and of course our own SAP InnoJam and SIT InnoJam events around the world!
Submit your most inspiring, innovative, or technically superior demo for the chance to win fame and fortune! OK, just fame. And maybe a little glory, if that’s how you define hearing fellow programmers howling your name.
Here’s how it works: You submit a cool demo then the awesome BUT anonymous selection committee invites the best submissions to compete live, on stage, at SAP d-code Las Vegas, Berlin, and/or Bangalore. The winning demo is the one with the loudest screams from the audience.
Finalists receive two passes to the SAP d-code 2014 location at which they’re invited to compete, with full access to all sessions, including hands-on workshops and technical lectures.
Rules for DemoJam
- No sales presentations allowed. Violators will have their names and photos posted on Twitter with hashtag #missedthepoint.
- Make sure your demo is original. Show us something that solves a real problem and could benefit SAP customers. And use at least one SAP technology or application in the demo.
- The demo code must run. PowerPoint slides won’t cut it.
- Keep it short – six minutes max.
- Choose no more than two people to demo your code.
- A maximum of two people may present the demo onstage.
- There are two ways SAP employees can participate in DemoJam:
- If they created a demo in collaboration with an SAP customer, SAP partner, or an external individual or organization not linked to SAP.
- If they created a demo during one of the several official SAP hackathon or coding challenges throughout the year.
Another addition this year is that those demos submitted from a hack-a-thon or InnoJam (officially listed ones) will receive a bonus during the selection process so those entries will automatically have a better chance of being selected but no promises that they will be!
Submissions are open and will close September 20, 2014 so get in there for sure.
