It's not over yet! Today has been another banner day for HCP at TechEd in Las Vegas and around the world online, and you still have a chance to catch a few repeat sessions tomorrow (and the release of next episode of the HCP Podcast). This will be my last wrap post, and I hope you've enjoyed getting a feel for all things HCP at TechEd, including:
Sure, there haven't been riveting keynotes or lifesaving DemoJams today, but there have been several LIVE sessions focusing on HCP and in particular the developer experience, as well as many continued educational sessions and action on the show floorwhich you can visit till 6pm today -- and you can still catch a big event when Third Eye Blind takes the ballroom stage at 9pm tonight.
To kick off a series of developer-focused live sessions, Alex Graebe moderated at 9:30am with Sanjay Patil and Frederic Berg from SAP, and Stormy Peters from Cloud Foundry, a key initiative for HCP. Stormy talked about how it's refreshing that, though enterprises have always been using open source (Linux and more), the difference now is that enterprises are using open source software in a much more open manner. The crew also drilled into other open source initiatives at SAP including HANA Vora on Apache, SAP UI5/OpenUI5.
Continuing with the developer perspective, Matthias Steiner and Rui Nogueira drilled into what's new for developers on HCP in the LIVE studio together with SAP Mentor James Bowdark. Citing IoT Services, YaaS, Cloud for Analytics, and the Digital Boardroom as what's brand new, the team also called out that 2016 will be the "Year of Cloud Foundry" as well as the year of new data centers for HCP.

"The time is now. You better catch the train before it leaves the station," said Matthias.
