Enterprise Geeks Podcast – TechEd Vienna: Nigel James

Although I didn’t get the opportunity to record nearly as many interviews at TechEd Vienna as I would have liked, I did get a chance to chat with fellow SAP Mentor and eGhead – Nigel James of Apps Com Limited.

Nigel shares his thoughts on being an SAP Mentor and active member of the community, a little bit about BSP, and the state of the industry from his point of view.

Enterprise Geeks Podcast – TechEd Vienna: BPX Process Slam

While some of us eGheads were attending RIA Hacker Night during TechEd, some of our fellow eGheads that lean more toward the Business Process Expert side of the house were also busy with their own evening event. This other evening event was the Process Design Slam.

I had the opportunity to sit down and interview Marilyn Pratt and Twan van den Broek about this exciting event and how in the future we might be able to bring the Hacker Night and Process Slam closer together.

Enterprise Geeks Podcast – TechEd Vienna: Craig and RIA Hacker Night

The morning after the RIA Hacker Night in TechEd Vienna, fellow Enterprise Geek Craig Cmehil and myself had the opportunity to sit down and discuss the highlights of the Hacker Night, TechEd in General, and the future of both events. We also spend a little time looking back at some of the less know activities of TechEds past (digging up some stories that were perhaps best left unmentioned).

egHeads rock! Smurfs!

Our egHeads are the absolute best! I got a message shortly after SAP TechEd Phoenix from John Astill and then these photos!

And since Tweetphoto does not allow an easy way to “embed” a photo to share it I did a scrape (sorry John)…


John’s smurf customization skills rock. Here are some pics of the ewH and ABAP freak smurfs:
