In February we announced the evolution of the SAP InnoJam and the DemoJam at SAP TechEd events! Now with the registrations opening up soon for Las Vegas and Barcelona it's time to say a few more things about it!

Remember to compete at DemoJam you have to be selected at InnoJam and to be selected at InnoJam you have to register and attend the event!

We'll be announcing soon the "theme" of the event (hint hint we've short listed 3 themes and I'm thinking the term "well being" may indicate my personal choice of the 3) then once we announce the theme we'll be providing information in terms of tutorials and interviews around the main technologies such as the SAP HANA Cloud Platform and SAP HANA and of course from domain experts around the theme itself.

From the theme you may have ideas on what the challenges might be but the official challenges won't be released until you arrive on site to kick off the event, and yes the challenges from Las Vegas and Barcelona will be different!

This is an exciting time for the us, the InnoJam which started as the "SAP Innovation Weekend" back in 2010 has seen some small evolutions and changes over the years all leading up to this point. Many actually may not remember but in 2010 we talked about how this event could actually do what it is now, feeding the DemoJam with teams so for me to see it happen finally this year is pure excitement! Take a look back at our humble beginnings!

DemoJam is also a topic near and dear to me, having spent many a year hosting the event I'm anxious to see it evolve as well and I think having 6 teams from the InnoJam get up their on stage is a step in the right direction! I'm anxious to see SAP, customers and partners join in as teams to compete against each other and that in a levelled playing field with everyone getting the same information and knowledge in advance! Again we have come far!

So I hope that you sign up either as yourself to join a team upon arrival or that you and your whole team sign up together! Let's continue to make history!

See you in Las Vegas and Barcelona!
