The anticipation of the launch of the new modern platform for our community is growing each week. Members previews of the site are continuing (at SAP Tech Ed Las Vegas, then in Bangalore and Madrid), more Tips in a Minute are released, and blogs about how the project is progressing are being published.
We’ve begin publishing a weekly round-up of feedback, comments and overall community kudos. They are called The NEW SCN: Sharing the Excitement.
It’s published using a cool tool, Storify, where you can tweet and retweet directly into Twitter from the letter, “like” a post directly on Facebook and more. The round-up gathers the best tweets, blogs, articles and more from the prior week:
Excerpts from Issue #1
