SAP Inside Track Bangalore August 2023 – My experience as speaker

I have been to various SAP events when working in SAP and other companies, but always as an attendee. But this time when I saw the announcement of SIT Bengaluru 2023, I couldn’t stop myself not just attend but registered myself as speaker. To my surprise, I got to know it got nominated! My topic was “Discovering Open-Source ABAP” which was scheduled at 10 AM for Track 8.

The next part was to prepare my presentation carefully so that I can convey it to the audience within 25 minutes of my given time but still making sure I can pass the important concepts and ideas to them.

In the morning when I reached my old company, I felt nostalgic as always. The heart still bleed blue. I collected the registration badge and speaker t-shirt. I came across the highly energized organizers Subhajit Das and Mahesh Palavalli  and shared greetings.

Above all, got a chance to meet none other than Sindhu Gangadharan which was always on top of my wishlist.

At 9.30 AM, the event started with keynote from Sindhu Gangadharan . The way she started and engaged the audience is truly remarkable, I couldn’t imagine a better start than this.

Then at 10 AM as planned, my session “Discovering Open-Source ABAP” was started in Track 8.


Session Started!


Session Agenda

I gave an overview of various open-source ABAP projects which is a great offering to the SAP community and by the SAP community. I was glad to see many enthusiastic audience joining the session and found it really helpful which was a big satisfaction to me as a speaker.

Afterwards, I did join several other sessions like BTP CAP Storyboarding by Subhajit Das which was a new learning followed by some sessions ranging on SAP Build Process Automation, Event Driven Architecture and Gen. AI sessions etc. amazing stuffs!

Finally at 4.30, the sessions were ended with a high note with a promise to see the crowd again in TechEd Bangalore on November 2023. Besides, it was a sweet surprise for me to be one of the lucky speakers to receive a title from SAP Press!


The lucky ones!

The day was certainly one of the memorable days of my life. Such a vibrant people from diverse organizations and business communities, so much positive energies around. I want to convey my heartfelt thanks to SITBLR event organizers for conducting it so well. Surely looking forward to meet you all again in next SITBLR.
