Have you ever attended an event and had an unexpected insight as the result of speaking with someone or had an ah-ha! moment by sharing an opinion with another working professional?
While many hallway conversations and networking opportunities arise out of serendipitous and impromptu meetings, there is a way to encourage such exchanges and to “load the dice” (so to speak in Vegas) to provide more than a chance this will happen.
This year at SAP Teched&&d-code, in additional to structured sessions, hands on workshops, expert lounge sessions, special events for coders and developers – participants are invited to have informal chats around themes that matter to them. The organizers will provide the space while you, the participants, bring the topic…and the passion.
Although SAP drives many of the topics and themes of the more formal sessions, might you wish to speak about “other stuff”? What would be some of the themes you would like to hear your peers talk about? Would you dare to invite others (those Birds of a Feather) to flock together to chat, rant, opine?
If you are attending either the event in Las Vegas or Berlin please comment here with your topics and also let me know if you are willing and able to call upon other “birds” to flock to your slot.
Birds-of-a-feather (BOF) Sessions:
Birds-of-a-feather (BOF) Sessions: The last hour of the day on the show floor is your opportunity to connect with SAP development experts and your peers around topics of mutual interest.
In Las Vegas these Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) sessions will be held in the Expert Lounges Tuesday 6-7 pm, Wednesday and Thursday from 5-6 pm.
In Berlin these will be held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 5:30pm – 6:30pm.
Looking forward to seeing and hearing lots of birds. Let the feathers fly.
