Hello Nora!

First off, a massive congratulations to the whole team for organizing yet another successful Devtoberfest! It's evident from the details you've shared that a lot of thought, planning, and dedication went into making this event the resounding success that it is.

From the informative sessions on ABAP, CAP, Data Analytics, and more, to the fun segments like Petoberfest and Desktoberfest, the entire month seemed like a well-rounded mix of learning and fun! 🎉 The number of views on the SAP Developers Youtube Channel speaks volumes about the interest and engagement from the community.

Congrats to Nico on introducing us to the newest member of the team! 🍼 @TammyPowlas's Kansas City BBQ from Foodtoberfest looked so appetizing that I'd happily drive 88 miles for a taste! 🍖

Lastly, big shoutout to @thecodester for the Cryptic Crossword and to the entire Developer Advocates team for keeping the SAP Community engaged and vibrant. Looking forward to TechEd and the announcements of the winners! 🏆

Once again, kudos to everyone involved, and here's to an even more exciting Devtoberfest next year! 🥳

Best regards,

Rafael
