At SAP TechEd in Las Vegas, we gave attendees the opportunity to set up "unconference" meetups in the Community Lounge -- and we plan to do the same in Barcelona.

What's an unconference? I'm glad you asked! An unconference allows you to talk about just any topic that appeals to you -- with people who also find that topic interesting. In the case of the Community Lounge unconference meetups, you pick a date and time during SAP TechEd Barcelona (October 8, 9, or 10) and choose a topic, and if that slot is free (and the topic is appropriate), we'll put you on the schedule.

What's an appropriate topic? I'm glad you have so many questions! (Inquisitive minds are perfect for unconferences.) Well...just about anything within reason. Check out this post about the Vegas unconferences -- so you can see some of the topics that were covered (and you can learn a bit more about the unconference concept).

Each unconference meetup lasts 30 minutes at a table that can accommodate about a half-dozen people -- although if more people show up, and they don't mind standing, that's fine too. That's what's great about unconferences: they're an informal way for people to connect and chat about the things that matter to them.



I'll be at the meetup desk in Barcelona, so if you want to schedule something, come by the Community Lounge (found in the Developer Garage section of the show floor) and see me. Once you secure your slot, I'll put your unconference into the agenda builder (as a meetup session) for SAP TechEd Barcelona, so other people can see when your meetup will occur (and stop by to talk to you). To access the agenda builder, go to the SAP TechEd Barcelona site and select "My Agenda" from the "Learn" dropdown menu. You can also find the meetup sessions via the SAP TechEd mobile app.

In addition, I hope to have a nifty whiteboard at the desk in Barcelona -- so I can write down the upcoming sessions for all attendees to see. Just check out the cool one that my colleague oddss maintained in Vegas. I'd like one too...even though my penmanship ain't so great.

Finally, I'll maintain the schedule in this blog post. In fact, let's get things started before Barcelona. Have an idea for an unconference meetup? Then leave a comment to this blog post proposing a topic, date, and time. You can also follow me, I'll follow you back, and we can discuss your proposal via direct messages.
