Since my last blog on this topic, I went on a short vacation to Alaska.  I highly recommend visiting Alaska if you have never been.

The band has been playing at SAP TechEd for the past 5 years.  Last year there was a surprise performance at the end of the keynote.  What surprises will there be this year?

I did a quick text analysis for the BI+Analytics Conference earlier this month in Nashville.  The conference generated over 1700 tweets.

SAP Mentor Yasuko Sekiguchi writes about the upcoming SAP Inside Track Tokyo.    Last year the event had 300+ people, I recall.  She also says

To show Japanese page is here. Why SAP community Event to catch up and share the latest technologies. SAP Inside Tracks is a community event of the community members, by the community members and for the community members

Moya Watson writes about Community Magic: Real-World Sessions for your Consideration for SAP TechEd Las Vegas.  I attended a few community sessions last year and they are not to be missed.  I have seen most of the slides for these sessions and they are simply amazing.  Add these sessions to your agenda.

SAP Mentor Jocelyn Dart writes another great blog Leading S/4HANA UX Selecting SAP Fiori Apps , Fiori Elements How to Develop an Objects Page and Fiori Apps Export to Excel via UI Adaptation Editor

Moya writes another well-written blog about the SAP Cloud Platform Sessions at SAP TechEd Las Vegas in GET READY: The Complete Guide to SAP Cloud Platform at SAP TechEd.  If you are attending SAP TechEd Las Vegas, this blog is worth a visit and Moya has included links to everything and she explains the SAP TechEd Content Themes.

Jason Cao writes about the SAP Mentor Program turning 10 years old.  Jason invites you to comment on his blog.  I am humbled by Robert Russell’s comments.  I also like this:

“share your knowledge so that problems become smaller for everyone”


Florian Henninger provides a sample agenda for SAP TechEd Las Vegas if he were attending.

Since I have been on vacation, SAP Lumira 2.0 has gone GA.  SAP Mentor Ingo Hilgefort provides insight on SAP Lumira Designer 2.0 + Visual BI Extensions – a Great Combination.  As a certified Project Management Professional (PMP), I particularly like the Gantt Charts.  Who knew you could do that with Lumira Designer?

Mike Howles writes about SCN SAP Lumira Designer 2.0 SDK Components, a very popular topic in this space.

Murder on the HANA Express by Paul Hardy – written on the same day as the solar eclipse.  It reads like a mystery.


Tobias Trapp offers How to Cope with Stress at Work and Keep the Passion – something everyone should read.  I need to learn and practice the STOP principle:

Now act and apply the STOP principle:

  • Stop what you are doing for a short time, say a minute.
  • Take a deep breath. Repeat it some times.
  • Observe your mind: what are your emotions? What is the attitude when you are working? What are you feeling? Don’t analyze anything, don’t think about it, just observe
  • Proceed. Just reflect what you observed and continue what you are doing, perhaps with a smile.

Eng Swee Yeoh writes another interesting blog Dear SAP Cloud Integration, How do I Unit Test? with some interesting comments from the community.

I write an update about the ASUG BI Community including SAP TechEd and Call for Presentations for the BI+Analytics Conference in February in Huntington Beach, California.  I also write how we are looking for ASUG volunteers in Central Virginia to support the ASUG Virginia Chapter.  I also offer a sample agenda for SAP TechEd Las Vegas for the Analytics (“Know”) theme sessions.

Robin vet het Hof aka @Qualiture on Twitter shares about getting the most out of Xcode for iOS development.  DJ Adams writes about SCP Business Rules Roadmap – 5 Observations

Coming soon:

Joyce Butler moderates Yes, Lumira 2.0 is GA webcast this Thursday.

SAP Inside Track Berlin is Saturday – first time in Berlin with several SAP Mentor Alumni presenting, lead by Oliver Kohl

Next month SAP Mentor Alum Alan Rickayzen gives a webcast on September 14: A Whirlwind Tour of Workflow in S/4 HANA Cloud & on-premise (Session 1)


What other moments did I miss?  Don’t forget to visit Alaska (in the summer time, for sure):

Resurrection Bay, Alaska.  Alaska is the 49th state in the US, and has 2 oceans as a border.
