After much inspiration from other SAP Inside Track Events I want to go for an SAP Inside Track Walldorf at the end of the year.
Grab the opportunity and connect with your peers, learn from each other by sharing experiences and thoughts.
Use hash tag #sitWDF on Twitter to share ideas and spread the news! Use as a shortcut.

The conference language will be English.

In addition to the regular SIT program, we also collect topics, where you would value a presentation from an SAP Employee. Input is collected in the registration form, and we'll try to get hold of a speaker for the topic, once sufficient interest is there.

SAP CodeJam Walldorf      Friday, December 11, 2015 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm (CET)

Looking to network with fellow developers while exploring something new and exciting? Well look no further, as SAP CodeJam presents the latest in SAP HANA with IoT!

As a participant, you will get access to tools, sandboxes, interactive time with experts and much more. These physical face to face, in-person events have been going on since 2012 and have become a hit amongst all the attendees!

Don’t know much about SAP HANA with IoT? Not to worry, we will be sending out an email checklist with links to help you prepare for the event.

To attend our events, we ask of three simple things: DESIRE, your own laptop and of course for you to show up ready to learn!

The event is free but the space is limited, so SIGN UP NOW!

Marketplace Sessions (maximum 20 minutes)

We provide tables and the audience can just drop by listen, discuss and go to the next one. It allows more interaction and talks about topics which do not fit to a lecture for bigger audience. The marketplace has its own slot after lunch and will not run in parallel to the lectures. The 20 minute sessions will be repeated by the hosts, so that the attendees can rotate around and catch up on every topic.
