SAP TechEd Final Countdown

Friday, September 8th, 2006 | Adobe, SAP, Technology | 1 Comment

The last days have been pretty hectic. I am getting ready for SAP’s number one tech event the SAP TechEd. This meant installing SAP Web Application Server on VMWare, getting the demos ready, figuring out who needs to go to which workshop, preparing for the Demo Jam and many more things. I am flying to Las Vegas on Sunday and expect a long night since I still need to get an SAP Web AS ABAP server installed on a machine which is hopefully waiting for me in the hotel. I do not have a monitor yet, but hopefully someone can help me out (if you know where I could use a Monitor in the Venetian Hotel on Sunday afternoon/evening please let me know. Even better let me know if you have a box with the Web AS 6.40 ABAP stack which I could use for the SDN workshop).
I am very excited to meet Robert Scoble who will be at SDN Day (the SAP Developer Network Event the day before TechEd starts officially). He will do interviews for PodTech (Until today I did not realize they have an SAP Channel, cool!).
So here is a summary of the Adobe content at SAP TechEd and SDN Day we have lined up….
– Two hour hands-on workshop (bring your laptop) to develop Rich Internet Applications with Flex and connect them to SAP (if I can get the ABAP Server running 😉
Four session around Interactive Forms at SDN Day, meaning talk to our developers about the technical details of SAP Interactive Forms by Adobe
Demo Jam – Yes I will compete with a demo showing live coding in Flex Builder developing a cool Flex app connection to SAP in 6 minutes (Please support me with a lot of noise :-)
– 12 (!) presentations and workshops featuring Interactive Forms in SAP NetWeaver. This is a great opportunity to get educated on one of the hottest technology in SAP NetWeaver
– Exhibition Pods: We have one booth (booth #1) which features everything you want to know about Interactive Forms and allows you to talk to the experts (no sales or marketing people allowed on our booth!) and one pod (pod #1) in the NetWeaver village featuring Adobe Flex technology. It is great to be twice #1 :-)

Well I better get some rest before the crazy days start!

P.S. One more update – I will present the Adobe Engagement Platform and Apollo as part of SAP’s session “Next Generation of Client Technology for SAP“. We are absolutely dedicated to bring rich and engaging user experiences to SAP customers.

Make up funny facts about SAP and post them here…

SAP Facts (Chuck Norris style)

My favorites:

Oracle still hides the fact that FUSION stands for: Finally use SAP in our network

SAP is such a great software that initially there weren’t any errors.
But in order to have any work to do at all, they made up some bugs

SAP is so efficient in creating software, there is actually only one
developer writing code, all others are architects and managers

I am in Chicago right now and met last night with Mark Smithson, independent SAP consultant and SAP forms guru. We are presenting today together at the ASUG Illinois Chapter Meeting in Palatine, IL and will compare the different SAP forms tools SAPscript, SAP Smart Forms and SAP Interactive Forms by Adobe.

Thomas Jung, the top SDN contributor, will be there as well presenting ABAP Web Dynpro and I am looking forward to talk to him again.
