SAP DemoJam 2015 - SPECTR

Jan Penninkhof and I made it to the final 6 teams of SAP's InnoJam. And that got us on stage at DemoJam. It was, as Jan would say, "Awesome". No really, to present at SAP TechEd DemoJam is still a boy's dream.

SAP TechEd 2015 Day 2

Na een korte nacht met 3 uur slaap stappen we wederom de Fira de Barcelona binnen. De innovatiewedstrijd SAP InnoJam nadert het einde en alle teams hebben nog genoeg open punten. Zo ook het team van The Next View.
Werken met nieuwe technologie is leuk en leidt tot veel enthousiasme. Ronald: het is een leuke ervaring en fantastische manier om in een veel te korte tijd een business case technisch uit te werken. Zoals gewoonlijk ook weer te veel om te doen in te weinig tijd.

“Creative companies create inspiring environments. Tim Brown of innovation and design company Ideo says play creates a risk-free environment that encourages people to experiment, as there is no such thing as failure.”
