SAP Inside Track London 2009 [4 April 2009]

Last year we had a great unconference / community day. This year we are hoping it is going to be even better.

Some of you may remember that before there was Community Day, there was SDN Day and before SDN Day there was SDN meets Labs in Palo Alto as well as Walldorf. It is a long time until TechEd and we would like to bring together SAP implementation consultants & developers from the UK, Europe and beyond together for a day of learning, networking and hacking fun. Depending on the interest, there may be some BOBJ and even BPX process fun / sessions too, but that's down to you - if you're interested in talking about something (you don't have to present, it can just be a discussion) then just add a session topic below.

  • Where IBM Building on Southbank, London Here are comprehensive directions.
