**Edited to fix the egregious omission of steinermatt's session on building cloud-native apps with SAP HCP. MICROSERVICES! Perhaps I can attend and learn how to build an app that identifies SAP PRESS authors in the TechEd agenda, so as not to make this horrible error ever again.**

Imma let you finish, SAPPHIRE NOW + ASUG Annual Conference, but SAP TECHED IS THE BEST CONFERENCE OF ALL TIME.

Okay, I probably shouldn’t play favorites, and SAPPHIRE is a pretty rocking party, but it’s hard to beat the nerdery of TechEd. I still can’t believe I missed bjoern.goerke's epic tribute to The Martian (and SAP HANA Cloud Platform) in Barcelona, but I’m optimistic that something equally cool is afoot for this year in Las Vegas—especially because is involved. By the way: Here’s my official request for a play on Independence Day: Resurgence. (Was the movie terrible? Yes. Did I love every minute of it? Yes. Will anyone back me up on this? xavier.hacking, help a fangirl out.)

Anyway. Once the keynotes are over, the sessions start, and the TechEd nerdery gets even better. From me to you, here's your list of must-attend sessions by SAP PRESS authors.
