Come to SAP TechEd 2008, 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.

During the week, on September 10, 2008 (Subject to change!). SAP, SAP Developer Network, Adobe, Coghead and RedMonk 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. For 2008 we've double the capacity and increased the presentations and sought out even more new and interesting things to demo and present! 2008 proves to be a most interesting year for attendees to the Hacker Night, don't miss your chance to sign up and attend!
