This will be my 7th time (yes I counted) to TechEd Bangalore but debutant as a speaker.
Being a local (one reason I do not move out from Bangalore in Nov / Dec) means no need to pack my bags but be mindful of leaving super early to beat the morning rush hour traffic to KTPO venue at Whitefield, Bangalore.
As mentioned in the heading this will be first time for me as a Speaker even though it is 30 minutes Networking session where I shall share my exploratory understanding of HANA and Cloud based applications in SCM area. There will be one slide only but 7-8 backup slides should there be anyone interested to dive deep into the applications. UPDATE: Blogpost of session
Other than that I shall focus on BPMon (ITM107), Unified Job Monitoring (ITM111) with SolMan, Suite on HANA (TEC102), SOP with HANA - Accenture POV (TEC224), BPM related topics like Intelligent Processes on SAP HANA (POP218) hear about Unilever's story of Enterprise Business Integration (POP218) and ALM approach with SolMan (ITM143) and Customer Experience transforming Business Suite on HANA (CD220).
Apart from these I hear there are mini Code Jams planned at TechEd Bangalore similar to Las Vegas and Amsterdam. I am surprised why these are not announced in a big way (or maybe I have missed completely). But surely with Craig, Rui, Thomas Jung around at TechEd Bangalore Mini Code Jams formally or informally will take place.
UPDATE: Mini Code Jam daily schedule is published in this blog. Highly recommended!!!
If you are not going for Hands-On sessions but want to try out HANA Cloud Platform / HANA XS Engine etc. then be there at Code Jams.
Bonus for those doing open.sap.com courses - you get to meet the instructors Rui Nogueira (HANA Cloud Platform) and Thomas Jung (Intro to SW development with SAP HANA). Don't miss this opportunity if you are attending TechEd Bangalore.
Counting down the final 32 hours before Vishal kicks off TechEd Bangalore with his Keynote.
Lastly this year TechEd Clubhouse will surely rock with SCNis10 theme. Looking forward to meet and share good old memories down the years with a big contingent of Community Managers and Evangelists.
