I will be honest here ... this is my first time attending SAP TechEd and first time writing a blog ... uh oh ... so please be kind :smile:
What motivated me is obviously a chance to grab the 3rd hands-on workshop, because like everyone else ... I feel that 2 workshops are simply not enough. So here I am, dipping my toe into blogging.
Location: Las Vegas (would love to go to Berlin, but maybe next time :wink: )
Decision ... decision ... so many sessions, so little time
DEV101 SAP HANA Native Application Development
I have attended Thomas Jung's online course with http://open.sap.com and enjoyed it tremendously, would love to learn this course from the expert himself.
DEV102 Build, Extend, and Run Applications with SAP HANA Cloud Platform
Our company has just started implementing SAP HANA, so I am looking forward to learn more about building and running application with SAP HANA Cloud Platform.
DMM263 SAP Landscape Transformation Replication Server Real-Time Data Integration
DMM108 Real-Time Data Replication with SAP Landscape Transformation Replication Server
CR701 SAP LT Replication Server - Performance Boost
We are currently using SLT Replication Server to replicate tables from ECC to HANA, and have to admit that we are experiencing some performance problem, no doubt due to our inexperience in this technology. So among all the other sessions, these are the most important sessions for me. Plus, I have read Tobias Koebler's blog about SLT and would love to 'pick his brain' on these topics.
DMM240 SAP HANA Replication Using SAP Replication Server
DMM222 SAP Replication Server Performance Tuning and Troubleshooting
DMM113 SAP Replication Server Usability Enhancements
As I stated before, anything related to replication, I am going to be 'wide-eyed' and eager to learn more. Specially since I am going to be responsible for replicating data to SAP HANA (no pressure there :razz: )
CR702 SAP LT Replication Server - Replacing SAP BW Extractor
Although BW is not my 'cup of tea', but learning on how to rebuild extractor logic with SLT functionality will be essential to the success of our company's project.
DMM112 SAP HANA Scalability and Performance
ITM162 Managing and Transporting SAP HANA Objects
Although we are not there yet at this point of our SAP HANA project, but this will be one of the important issue in the months to come.
ITM110 SAP HANA Platform Lifecycle Management
I would really love to learn more about tools and services of SAP HANA Lifecycle Management.
DEV100 Overview of Development and Extension Platform for SAP HANA and Cloud
On top of many lectures, hands-on workshops, code reviews, and road-maps, I am really excited to attend networking sessions to get to know others and their challenges during SAP HANA/SLT implementation.
What I am looking for the most?
EVERYTHING! A joy of learning something new always excites me ... and I will be sure to 'hit' the slot machine afterwards :wink: .
