Meet us at the Coffee Corner – at SAP TechEd Bangalore!
The Coffee Corner is one of the hottest areas of the SAP Community site, so it’s only fitting that we’ll also be in the Coffee Corner in Bangalore! You will find us on the right side of the show floor entrance.
This is the team that will welcome you onsite:
Swing by the booth and meet us to learn about the SAP Community and the SAP Mentors program!
While you’re there, you can enjoy a Gola (shaved flavored ice, handmade by the SAP Mentors team), and you can hang out, chill, and even play foosball in the SAP Community Clubhouse.
- Meet members who received SAP Community awards (including Saurabh Kabra, who will be at our booth on Thursday the 26th between 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. ) and learn how you can stand out in the community too
- Meet the SAP Mentors Ajay Maheshwari, Ankur Godre, Athavan Raja Durairaj, Jyoti Prakash, Krishna Kishor Kammaje, Leon Limson, Murali Shanmugham, Raj Kumar Salla, Yariv Zur, Kumud Singh, and SAP Mentor Alumni Cd Raju, Shabarish Vijayakumar and Somnath Manna to talk with them about SAP Community or their expertise
- Watch out for Capra the Community goat on the show floor, get a photo with her, and share the picture on social media with the hashtags #goatspotting and #sapcommunity and / or #sapmentors and / or #sapteched) — earning yourself some nice SAP Community swag

If you won’t be attending SAP TechEd Bangalore, you’ll still be able to participate in related activities. On Thursday the 26th at 10:00 a.m. local time, will air “Why SAP Community Matters,” with Jerry Janda interviewing Murali Shanmugham (SAP Mentor and SAP Community award winner) about the importance of the community — and about how members can get the most from it. (Replay will be available on the SAP TechEd Live site — similar to the one recorded at SAP TechEd Las Vegas). If you want to meet SAP Community people during SAP TechEd but online, then you might want to check out this thread and tell the Community what you do. And we’ll be holding another caption contest about Capra — once again looking to give someone bragging rights for the funniest submission. Look out for Caroleigh Deneen’s blogpost soon.
So whether you’ll be in Bangalore or not, we hope you’ll get caught up in the excitement of SAP TechEd!
We, the SAP Community and SAP Mentors staff team at SAP TechEd Bangalore, look forward to meet you.
and our special guest Capra
So much fun and hopefully many opportunities to meet and get to know our community members in person!
Great to go to India again, and attend my first SAP TechEd in Bangalore!
Thanks for sharing all these nice activities, Mynyna!
this is a lite off-topic (and the 2nd time I comment before even reading the whole blog), but it was such a flash of insight when I saw that picture and job title of Capra:
You (= SAP Community folks 🙂 ) now actually got yourself a SAP Community Scapegoat!?!
Poor Capra! 🙁
Strange but (according to search!) true: I'm the first to notice this:
(Or at least voice that finding in public)
I hope the Community at TechEd will defend Capra and keep her alive and happy!
At first I was afraid (^^),
that maybe seach wouldn't work so well and not find the things you searched for, but no, it work's fine: Now that I voiced this inconfortable truth, search also points to it:
Hi Joachim! What is a "scape" goat? 😀
I find it unlikely that anyone within the community will refer to Capra as our scapegoat -- as long as they understand the Capra story and appreciate what Colleen Hebbert and Susan Keohan did to bring the goat to life.
I saw firsthand how Capra represented the very best of SAP Community -- and I fully expect to see the positive attitude live on in Bangalore and at Barcelona and on twitter.
That being said, I'll continue to help to keep Capra safe, along with awesome "goatherders" such as Former Member , whose video talents helped capture (Capratured?) some of the goat's adventures.
Besides...I'd like to think that I'm the official SAP Community scapegoat, and I don't need Capra jeopardizing my job security. 🙂
Anybody who has spent any time at all with the SAP Community team knows that Capra will be in good hands.
Even if Jerry can't help the poor little goat stand up to get a drink of water:
Hey, as the saying goes -- you can lead a goat to water...
Super excited. Hope to see you all soon!
So I am wondering how the people at the airport reacted to a grown man (ALLEGEDLY) taking a stuffed goat and buying her beverages. Any funny looks, Jerry Janda ???
No more than usual. 🙂
Hi Moshe, Mynyna, Jerry & Capra,
I would like to congratulate the whole SAP Community Team for having a such big booth in SAP TechEd'17, Bangalore. It was so successful and the activities you have conducted has got immense response from participants, I have witnessed that all 3 days were having huge queues with participants in front of the booth. I strongly believe it'll give a positive feedback towards SAP Community. 🙂
