SAP Train Race - Day 2

Posted by Somya Kapoor in somya.kapoor on Nov 5, 2011 5:59:10 PM

After most people staying at the training venue well after 11PM the previous night, Saturday morning came all too quickly. However, no sleep deprivation or jetlag would keep our industrious developers from getting right back to work on their NetWeaver Gateway applications promptly at 7AM.



Coffee and energy drinks were flowing as the competition began to seriously heat up. Some teams went as far as to head into private rooms and hidden corners to discuss their top secret projects away from prying eyes and curious race counterparts.

We took a break from developing just before lunch to watch Matt Burnett present a Microsoft session covering HTML5, JavaScript, Windows Phone 7,  Metro, and UI controls.


We wrapped the work day with recording some team video blogs, introducing our racers and giving you a sneak peek at some of the creative and ambitious solutions currently in development. We will be posting those shortly, so watch this space.

Tweeting and blogging around the event also continued at a steady pace, with the best headline of the day going to CompriseIT's Owen Pettiford for this gem: "Sneek Peek at Influenza on the SAP Train Race."

While some teams are feeling confident enough about their progress to take the night off and visit some famous Parisian landmarks, for many participants work continues into the night on this last evening in Paris. Tomorrow we pack our bags and board the train to Madrid. 

Many SAP Train Racers we spoke to agree that if you are not here, then you are missing out on some grade "A" geek fun. If you are currently at SAP TechEd or SAPPHIRE in Madrid, we look forward to seeing you soon and invite you to join in on the fun in the interim by posting your pictures on our Facebook or Tweeting with the #SAPTrainRace hashtag.
