I am excited about two things when I am writing this blog. First one is about my first blog on new community and the later one is about the Teched Barcelona.

Let me start by telling the last words at the beginning. I advise everyone to join the Techeds.
It was great pleasure to be in SAP Teched Barcelona 2016 for me.

As you may know I had a chance to go to Teched because of our first S/4HANA project that I explained in my First S/4HANA Simple Finance Experience blog. My colleague had a chance to preseent this experience in one of the "Speakers from the SAP Community" session named TEC123-Lessons Learned from Turkey's First and Only Migration of SAP S/4HANA. Big thanks to Community.

We started our journey to Teched Barcelona from Istanbul together with 3 colleagues. We arrived at Barcelona on Monday noon and after leaving our belongings to our accommodation place we had a sightseeing  at La Rambla, at La Boquería and at Port of Barcelona.

From La Rambla,

At the Columbus Monument at the port

SAP Teched Barcelona 2016 started on Tuesday mornig with check in and getting the badge.
Here I am at SAP Teched Barcelona 2016.

It was great to join the keynote and listen to Bernd Leukert. HANA 2 was anounced in this keynote.
I am impatient about installing HANA 2 and wonder when it will happen. I hope it would be in short time.

I followed the Teched using the event mobile app and SAP Document Center app.  Mobile app was very helpful to follow the agenda and sessions.
Of course I visited SAP Comunity desk on showfloor and wrote my short blog there. Try to give a hand to build up new Community. 🙂

It was very nice to have selfies with SAP Mentors, too.

I could't enter some of my sessions because of lack of seats in the Networking Session rooms. Attandees interest to sessions were high. I also learnt and got many new topics in sessions. I will try to apply then whenever I get a chance.

I got HANA Express Edition on a USB from SAP HANA Academy team by joining the session NET40016.

Since our flight back to Istanbul was on Thursday we could not attend any sessions on Thursday unfortunately.

You have chance to watch replays from 2016 Videos page of Teched

I had many things that I have done first time in my life with this visit to Teched.
Here are some of them

PS: Sorry for the irregular paragraph design. Very difficult to use the blog editor. I tried many times but could not correct it. I hope the editor will be more easy to use in near future.
