Linux Cluster for a BW
Hey we talk about those clusters for a long time. This class (hands on for two hours - no surrender style) is meant for those who would like to kick tires to a different way. You are not a DB2 person ? No matter - swing on in and try the cluster out including smart technologies like MDC, MQT and else - I love those three letter acronyms. (and if you survive this class you get tips and tricks for my battlezone wihc is cool as ever).

Virtualized Linux with DB2
Everybody talks about Virtualization and things like Vmware or Xen come up as buzz words but what can and can not be done today ? This session in more or less round table format (well - I have slides, but we do not go over them) should allow a broad discussion and exchange from experiences in the SAP deployment space.  And before I forget - all goes - no marketing welcome.

This session is suggested after the cut off day. We will see what we can do on the Community Day to accommodate it. If not in the community day, then at the Clubhouse.
CRM/ISA (Internet Sales Application) 5.0
If you have a touch with CRM E-Commerce, specifically the ISA module, I am sure you will love to share your experience with other fellow developers... because there is no official training class on the technical subject available.

What is ASUG-BITI?  BITI is a Community of Special Interest Groups,
commonly referred to as SIGs, within ASUG.  BITI Stands for
Business Integration, Technology & Infrastructure. ASUG will be providing
content as part of this year's SAP Community Day at SAP TechED '07 in
Las Vegas.

BOF Sessions (from Wikipedia):
Birds of a Feather: This idiom is a shortening of the proverb "Birds of a
feather flock together.", meaning that people (birds) of the same kind or
interest (of a common feather) enjoy spending time (flocking) together. This
proverb is believed to date back as far as Greek and Roman times, but has become
commonly used as jargon by various groups since the nineteenth century. In the
world of computing, BoF (Birds Of a Feather) can refer to: An informal
discussion group. Unlike Special Interest Groups or Working groups, BoFs
are informal and often formed in an ad-hoc manner. The acronym is used by
the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to denote initial meetings of members
interested in a particular issue. A BoF session, an informal meet-up at
conferences, where the attendees group together based on a shared interest and
carry out discussions without any pre-planned agenda.

  1. I was wondering if a session on 'Maximixe your SDN/BPX experience' would be in order ?  Something to teach people new to SDN/BPX how to navigate, bookmark, store favorites... etc.  There is a ton of info out there, and sometimes it's hard to find. 

    Just my 2p.

  2. Go ahead and add it to the list, anything not done at the Community Day that people want to see/hear can always be taken into the Clubhouse during the rest of TechEd.

  3. Hi Craig,

    I was not suggesting that I *give* such a session... just that I, for one, would really benefit from it! 

    I'll add it to the list, with the disclaimer that I am absolutely unqualified to present it.

    Cheers,
    Sue

  4. Hi Sue,

    I would be glad to offer that session since I feel an afinity with the n00bs (smile).  Just waiting to be asked.
