Reflections on My First d<com>: A Journey of Learning, Connections, and Celebrations
I am excited to write this post as it is my first ever public engagement with community through a public blog post. Although I had intentions of writing earlier, it took some time to articulate my thoughts into words and, ofcourse, went through numerous rounds of edits and corrections. Here it goes!! 😊
This event holds great importance for me, not just because it marks my first d-com, but also because I had the opportunity to personally meet our CTO, Juergen Mueller. He graciously took a moment to capture the following photograph.
It was an absolute pleasure meeting leaders Anja Schneider, Anirban Majumdar, and PavanKumar PVN. Their words of encouragement have motivated me to continue learning and pursuing my interests fearlessly, even as I start my career at SAP. I’m immensely grateful for their invaluable support, which has boosted my confidence and propelled me towards my goals. My team came together to capture this moment.
Mahesh Palavalli and Lalit Mohan Sharma introduced me to SAP Community, an online platform that brings together SAP professionals, customers, partners, and enthusiasts to share knowledge, ask questions, and collaborate on various SAP-related topics. It serves as a vibrant hub for learning, networking, and staying updated on the latest trends and developments within the SAP ecosystem. I learned that the SAP Community platform facilitates engaging discussions, enables contribution to blogs and articles, provides a platform to ask and answer questions, and offers a wealth of resources such as tutorials, documentation, and best practices. It creates a valuable space for individuals to connect with experts, share experiences, and seek guidance from the community. Inspired by this community, I decided to publish my first blog (this blog) as an initiative to stay connected and contribute to this extensive network.
Furthermore, Arshitha S A introduced me to Career Canvas, a program that provides comprehensive resources and guidance to employees, enabling them to explore diverse career possibilities, identify their strengths and areas for development, and craft personalized development plans.
In addition to these incredible experiences, I had the honor of being part of the core organizing team for DemoJam. Our journey began approximately two months ago, forming the team, understanding the essence of DemoJam, and crafting a meticulous plan. This exciting venture, although tiring, was filled with adventures and valuable learnings for each team member. I extend my sincere gratitude to Peeyush Chaurasia for providing me with this wonderful opportunity, and thanks to my amazing teammates, we made it a great success😊!

Finally, the celebration of the 25th anniversary of SAP Labs India has added an extra layer of significance to this remarkable event. It serves as a testament to the legacy of innovation and excellence that continues to drive us forward.
With a heart full of gratitude and excitement, I look forward to embracing the future, leveraging the lessons learned, and making a positive impact in the world of technology. I would like to thank my mentor Ajit Kumar Panda and my entire team PVN PavanKumar , Uma Anbazhagan , Praveen Kumar Padegal , Mahesh Palavalli , Lalit Mohan Sharma , Shanthakumar Krishnaswamy for their unwavering support, guidance, and motivation throughout my journey, and here’s to many more adventures to come!
