SAP TechEd '09

For more information about the general event please visit the home page here. Want to attend RIA Hacker Night in Phoenix, Vienna and/or Bangalore? Then SIGN UP HERE and remember spaces are limited and you must be attending the SAP TechEd event already!

Come to SAP TechEd 2009, and learn how to be a best-run business. SAP TechEd enables IT managers, software developers, administrators, and business process experts to focus on innovation and stay ahead of business change.

 SAP, SAP Developer Network, Adobe, RedMonk and SAP Press will be hosting the Rich Internet Application (RIA) Hacker Night.




With such a growing interest in RIA and related technologies SDN and SAP ventured out to see how large an interest was present in the SDN community, the result together with Adobe was a sold out event in 3 SAP TechEd locations in 2007 and 2008. For 2009 we've added even more new and interesting things to demo and present as well as a look at "green"!
