LEARN, HACK & PLAY DAY Friday, January 13, 2017
Check-In 8:00 AM / Session Start 9 AM / Closing session 5 PM / BBQ Party 6 PM
The Community Learning Day starts at 9 am with a bar camp-style ideation session, to build teams and to decide on a small scale IoT project to work on. Until lunch break, different speakers offer ~1h (-2 h) intro sessions into specific aspects of IoT (e.g. using HCP for IoT), ideation and idea visualization. We will have a Sketching for IT session, which helps every attendee to easier draw a summary of ideas and market it to the right people. The whole Friday gives you time to work on your projects, you can play around with technology and gadgets from SAP D-Shop, or just mingle with your colleagues. We will also have a Tour to and through the SAP D-Shop that is also called “Developers Heaven”.
Starting from 5pm, teams present their prototypes, both what the original idea was, and what you achieved on this day. A jury evaluates the projects and the winner. Party & (Winter) BBQ starts around ~6pm.

SAP INSIDE TRACK Walldorf Saturday, January 14, 2017
Check-In 8:00 AM / Session Start 9 AM / Closing Networking session 5 PM
On Saturday is the day for very specialized sessions on specific topics, in good old SIT tradition with Lecture sessions and marketplace sessions. “SIT” is new to you? We recommend the great reading of Ingolf Bayer: Information and Insights from SAP Inside Track (SIT) Part I and Part II
Host a session for #SITWDF?
Here YOU have the chance to add value and pay forward: host a session at SAP Inside Track in Walldorf. This year we are also asking for non-technical submissions. (so e.g. think of product management hacks, design thinking) We want to form a non-technical track. If your session is accepted, your ticket is guaranteed!
Lecture Session (30 minutes): It doesn't have to be a well prepared classroom-style PowerPoint presentation; we also encourage open, improvised and collaborative discussion sessions to draw out the ideas and experiences of others. Please note that all sessions are supposed to last at most 30 minutes! If your session is shorter, you don't need to blow it up, please feel free to add it. If your session will need some more time, add your session and mention it.
Marketplace Sessions (20 minutes): We provide tables and the audience can just drop by listen, discuss and go to the next one. It allows more interaction and talks about topics which do not fit to a lecture for bigger audience. The marketplace has its own slot after lunch and will not run in parallel to the lectures. The 20 minute sessions will be repeated by the hosts, so that the attendees can rotate around and catch up on every topic.

KIDS TRACK #SITKids Saturday, January 14, 2017
Check-In 8:00 AM / Session Start 9 AM / Closing Networking session (together with Adults) 4:30 PM
nclusion and Diversity is more important than ever! If you are going to spend your weekend with us, why don’t you bring your family?
With #SitKids we would like to make a big step towards diversity and inclusion! We would like to create a colorful, diverse #sitKids where we give youngsters the chance to develop their technical understanding and skills, learn to work in groups with like-minded or different kids, while the adults join the regular SAP Inside track. We want to encourage kids to use their tecchi ability for relevant projects and not just to play around with their cellphone. Why should kids code? Code is one of the world’s most widely used languages, connected devices are already reshaping our world, kids learn better and faster when they’re young, Coding helps children to develop critical thinking skills and problem solving processes that are not only important in computer science, but also in life.… The list is long!
On this day we will have several work stations with following technologies:
* Makey Makey : (we have 2 sets). No previous knowledge required. Turn everyday objects into a “keyboard”. See video here. Always a winner with young kids. Look up the banana piano
* littleBits: Small electronic components that snap together with magnets. Only require basic knowledge of electronics and computing. Even has a module that connects to the Cloud.
* Lego Mindstorms: We have the EV3 kit. Build robots, program them, etc. You will need to have played with it a little before explaining it to kids.
* mBot Robot: Same category as Lego Mindstorms. Easy to build robot, can be programmed using the simple graphical Scratch language. Also good to come to the event with a bit of practice.
No worries regarding language! We will cover both, English and German!
After you have registered you will receive an email with a survey that asks you about details (e.g. if you want to bring your kid(s) (name, age, level), and if you would like to volunteer as an instructor)
Due to overwhelming interest, we ask that you please take NOW two minutes to confirm your participation and credentials, read further information and sign up for additional activities.

Will be driven by the session suggestions of all participants. DEVELOPING AGENDA and PROPOSALS CAN soon be found here!
