In our long list of SAP Inside Tracks in Brazil the last event realized was SIT São Leopoldo. This time our SIT was co-hosted with DKOM at SAP Labs São Leopoldo. DKOM was a 2 day event (31.3, SAP employees only, 1.4, open to partners + clients), SIT SL a one day event (1.4). As always, we recorded the videos and streamed them, and for those wondering why no HLS this time: I think it was a good proof that you cannot rely on YouTube 🙂
My event app allowed to sign up for the event, thanks to everyone that did so! Android users had also the chance to rate SIT sessions using the app. Apple was against a release of this feature before the event started, therefore iOS users could only rate sessions after the event was over. In total 45 people downloaded the app. While this looks nice, compared to the total number of participants the number is too low. For next SIT I’ll have to think about how to increase the number of people installing the event app. I guess it will help if the registration via app is the preferred way and opening up the web site event registration only later. Which implies to release the app way earlier.
I created a wrap up presentation for internal usage. As the file size is 5MB I cannot share it here. But here are some of the key slides and numbers:
I used the UI5 app to create a web site version, giving everyone with internet access the chance to access key information about the event. The site URL was sitsl.ddns.net. The site had 122 unique visitors.
Tweets were analyzed with a variety of tools, with Kibana being the primary reporting tool.
Impressions from the event.
To speak for all other Mentors involved at the event: a big thank you to SAP Labs São Leopoldo to let us co-host the event.
Our 3rd SIT at São Leopoldo was the first one to b eco-hosted at the first DKOM event at SAP Labs. DKOM being a two day event, the first day was strictly SAP internal, while the second day was open to clients and customers.
SAP has this awesome global developer focused internal event named DKOM. This is my 1st year as an SAP employee and it will be the first time I attend DKOM in real life. Being an SAP Mentor I had the chance to participate in previous DKOM events, but I never had the time, money or support (from my managers, company, etc) to go to the event and participate. All I had was virtual participation (thanks to Mark Finnern for making this possible), but that is not the same thing. So, this time I will be on site! #excited
Of course you get to be an SAP Mentor not only for sitting in your cubicle. The foundation is to share knowledge, and so I will share some lessons learned about a Fiori implementation: architecture, apps, maintenance, security. This is a DKOM only session (31.3.). During the SAP Inside Track São Leopoldo 2015 day (1.4.) I have the honor to present another session, co-presented with fellow SAP Mentor Bruno Lucattelli. This session will show how to connect the dots that lead to new SAP: ABAP, HANA, OData, Gateway, SAP Mobile Platform, Fiori, cloud, learning.
