Writing a non technical blog post is twice as hard as writing a tech. post 😞 😞 . Kudos to all those people who write those wonderful stuff 🙂  .  But I got some super secret advice from nabheetscn and here I am with this post 😛

So this was my second time attending the TechEd but this time it was more exiting and fun compared to the first. The main difference is that I met a lot of awesome folks there which made my experience at TechEd an awesome one 🙂 🙂

and now I decided to give a shout out blog post to all those people who made myTechEd a Fun Learning event 😄 <No Technical or Event updates>

My journey started a day early at the Influencers reception party, I am not one of them 😜 but was lucky to get an invite thanks to nabheetscn and katarina.fischer 🙂 🙂 It was an awesome party and I met some wonderful people over there. I had an awkward moment there when I spilled the beer ?? and I was not even drunk ???

So the first Community person that I met and who is a friend & a mentor thanks to SAP Community - "Connecting Tech Guys 😉 " is nabheetscn. He introduced me to the CAP world and now I am hooked to dj.adams.sap HandsOnDev videos 😛

Talking about CAP, I met some of our CAP Celebs there dj.adams.sap iinside  mariusobert



and I also met dj.adams.sap at multiple occasions at TechEd mostly at his sessions and Developer Garage (Too many people over there, so I had to skip dev. garage 😞 ) He was always warm and welcoming whenever he finds us(Nabheet, Gaurav, myself) at the event 🙂 .

Quiz conducted by dj.adams.sap and iinside is probably the most crowded sessions 🙂 🙂 . Lucky, I attended them both:) But not lucky enough to win 😄 😄

There was a also a small fight at his session 😛 - "Static Electricity VS DJ Adams" (at his functional programming session 😄 ) and DJ Adams with his mighty FP sword ended up as the winner 😛

 

Nabheet also introduced me some awesome community folks gaurav.karkara3 vijay.sharma4 and sachinnagal. I follow them by their blog posts and QA in the community. I attended a lot of sessions  with them in the next three days at teched. It was my pleasure meeting you guys.



(Myself, Nabheet, Sachin)

Then I met krishnakishor.kammaje2 whom I used to follow from a long time and still find his blog posts or answers whenever I search for my issue 🙂 .  I also met him multiple times at TechEd and had a conversation with him about Fiori launchpad and plugins and ended up with so many questions and doubts 😛 which I've to now explore 🙂 🙂 .



(Krishna, Myself, Gaurav, Vijay & nabheet)

 

Almost forgot!!, so practically the first person I met was Suhair, couldn't find his community id. He, nabheet and I had some of our little adventures at TechEd where we were treated like VIP's 😉 😛  It was really nice meeting you Suhair!!  I really enjoyed your demo on Intelligent Enterprise & RPA which gave a holistic view of SAP's Intelligent Enterprise.

 

Now moving on to TechEd, next 3 days were busy attending sessions, coding & meeting people. There I met sumit.kundu2, The Fiori guy, I know from SAP Community via his blog posts and answers and also mahesh.chandra . We even got some pics together! Nice meeting you two!!



(Mahesh, Sumit, Vijay & Myself)

There I met 4531036343574b30abbe272b3efec8ff and his wife. Both are SAP Technical and attending session together 🙂 . I follow his UI5/Fiori QA contributions in the community, always there is something new to learn from him !!.

Didn't know he was attending and so it was a surprise for me to find him there 🙂 Glad to meet you guys!!  BTW they won XBOX One at teched, amazing right!!  I had a photo with them as well.



 

So the next amazing person to meet was kgokara. Again I met him at several occasion at TechEd but sadly I didn't take a pic with him 😞  ...

Thanks to you I met some awesome people from Fiori elements teams, Saurabh Singh & prasita.prabhakaran . Kishore and I had a very good discussion with them regarding the current Fiori Elements templates, Future ODataV4 Fiori elements(sap.fe) template , sap cards and OVP.  It was much better than the regular sessions that I've attended 🙂

I got to meet craig.cmehil at his session about community. I didn't have any discussion with him, just a selfie  🙂 but surely he left a lasting impression on everyone who attended the session about his "Ring Community Story" and with his quote => see the below pic 🙂



 

sainaresh037 & dhanasupriya1498 are amazing community folks that I got to meet at teched.



It was the last day and I look so much awkward and tired 😄 😄

I also met our November member of the month there. sudip.ghosh4, another amazing community member and contributer. It was nice meeting you Sudip!!



 

More fun was with my old colleagues & friends there at TechEd, pradeep , Sunil & Mahesh(another one). Mahesh had to stand near by lecture sessions most of the time as he was part of the organising team 😄 But we enjoyed there by talking about the old times at our first company "Yash Technologies" .   It was awesome meeting you guys!!!



 

I met many other amazing people over there, please comment If i missed any (I blame my poor memory ).

It was nice meeting you all and hope to meet you folks soon in the next TechEd 😉

 

Thanks,

Mahesh
