Some @SAPMentors Magic Moments/Highlights from Last Week
I started this last week here so I will try to continue, if time allows
Raquel Cunha, SAP Mentor, provides SAP Inside Track São Paulo Functional 2017 – Wrap up while Marssel Vilaça provides a blog in Portuguese. On Tuesday, SAP Mentor Alum Michelle Crapo talks passionately about Free, Yes Free SAP Courses from OpenSAP.
Tuesday started with SAP Leonardo Live with SAP Mentors attending in person and some of us online. Tamas Szirtes provides a recap here. He covers success stories, what is included, and his own point of view. The replays are available, but you if don’t have time to watch the replays, be sure to read Tamas’s summary. Robert Eijpe provides quotes from the event. I was able to watch some of this online, and interestingly there was an “influencer” board where I was 40th, SAP Mentor Alum Fred Verheul was 49th and the @SAPMentors twitter account was 52.

Interestingly, without any promotion, this also appeared in my YouTube feed from SAP Mentor Ingo Hilgefort from last Thursday:
On Saturday, SAP Mentor Jerry Wang wrote about Use Regular Expression to parse the image reference in the markdown source code. It is amazing how Jerry contributes and shares his knowledge.
Also on Saturday, SAP Mentor Alum Jon Reed posts some thoughtful replies to blogs by Brian Ellefritz’s blog “My Next Challenge Head of SAP Community” and Timo Elliott’s “Hey SCN What’s Wrong with Marketing, No Really”. It is good to see Jon back commenting on the site.
