SAP TechEd Phoenix – SAP and Innovation

Two more interviews I got to do in Phoenix focused around innovation at SAP the first was with Denis Browne from the SAP Imagineering group (where Ed and Dan did a fellowship) and we got to talk about the possible future of the Enterprise and how we interact with our traditional ERP systems (video here) and the second was with Claus von Riegen from SAP in Germany around Open Innovation, Open Source and technology standards (video here)

Vienna SAP TechEd 2009 – Thomas Jung

This year the SAP TechEd decided to create something new called “Live from SAP TechEd” which was a series of live broadcasts which took place during the event in Phoenix and then again Vienna. Yours truly was one of the people doing those interviews and I wanted to share some of those with all of you eGheads out there!

To catch me and Thomas talking Next Generation ABAP in Phoenix just follow the link

RIA Hacker Night 2009 Vienna Replay

I’ve been a bit slack on posting this and it’s partially because I didn’t want to actually share with the world the awesomeness that has been the RIA Hacker Night 2009 so far! But I guess I better at least give everyone a taste of what they missed out so far.

Many of you probably know this already but the Enterprise Geeks decided to reach deep and sponsor the event this year together with some others…

So we were in great company and of course had a great time with so many great eGheads while in Phoenix and Vienna – Bangalore is next!

Due to technical issues with the service I was using in Phoenix I was not able to save the live stream however Vienna was a different issue and the above is about 3 hours of Hacker Night goodness!

ABAP Freak Show – Oct 21st – Interactive Forms by Adobe

This is another episode of the ABAP Freak Show where we hop into the Wayback Machine and revisit a classic topic. In this episode, we look at creating Interactive Forms by Adobe that run within Web Dynpro ABAP. See the process from start to finish. We create the Web Dynpro Context and use it to generate the Interactive Form interface and context. We then import an existing PDF as the start of our form and extend with data mappings and a submit button.
