Part 1 of a 2-part series.

SAP TechEd is getting closer! On November 15–16, you are encouraged to participate with a global community of developers, tech visionaries, innovators, leaders, and next-gen.

With a choice of seven tracks and supporting sub tracks on today's most tech topics, we asked a group of SAP Champions and SAP Mentors for their tips on which sessions they look forward to attending.

Their responses on the key learning paths were very insightful.
