SAP TechEd Barcelona Recap
SAP TechEd Barcelona last week was a wonderful event! Jam packed with SAP Community fun 🙂 The event began for me Monday evening with the SAP Mentor reception – an opportunity to connect with both old and new friends spanning many years.
Tuesday morning launched the event with Bjoern Goerke’s great keynote in which he helped celebrate the mentors’ 10 year anniversary.
The SAP Community team (see them in action below) spent the next 3 days busy on the show floor engaging with community, answering questions and helping spread the word via social and selfie photo fun (an example is Darius Heydarian tweet below).
The team ran multiple networking sessions on topics such as empathy (Moshe Naveh) and brand awareness (Jamie Cantrell). We also held several sessions sharing our new prototype and were pleased the question asked most often was ‘how soon can it be released’.
There were daily recaps taped by Jerry Janda :
We also had daily Lego contests organized by Mynyna Chau which showcased our members creativity. I was especially impressed with the great selling skills of our final day contestants when sharing their star trek creations 🙂

Oliver Kohl, Florian Henninger and I had a chance for a quick sit down on the last day to share live about SAP Community: The Path Forward be sure to watch the replay if you missed it.
For me Community is all about people. I love SAP TechEd events since I get to interact directly with our community and encourage many who are mainly ‘readers’ to try and engage more online. I also get to meet old friends (too many to name but wonderful to see them again!) and even honor our award winners (such as Raquel Pereira da Cunha below).
This year an added element of fun was our online caption contests done by the very talented Caroleigh Deneen . Be sure to check out the funny comments Capra Caption Contest – Barcelona Style and especially that of our Barcelona winner, @jeremy.good.
If you were unable to attend I recommend checking out one or two of the blogs below sharing different aspects of the event and hope to see you at a future SAP TechEd!

The tweet by Darius Heydarian stands out for me. It wouldn't have to be @community_goat, of course (although I admit to some bias)... but anything (positive!) that gets people talking!
So... how soon *can* it be released?
Not in 2017 Sue but we don’t have exact information yet since it depends on user testing results and more. Of course we’ll update going forward!
It is always a pleasure to meet you Gali! You and all the SAP Community team do such a great work and are always open to listen to the community needs.
Thank you so much for the beautiful gift, for taking the time to care about us and prepare this nice surprise for the community award winners. I loved it. SAP Community rocks!
