The Garbage Collector, why we had fun at DemoJam

What an experience - being on stage at DemoJam at SAP TechEd. So totally different than doing a talk here or there. Watch Leo and me doing our #GarbageCollector show:



Last week in Madrid Leo and I had our 6 minutes of fame - and we enjoyed every minute of it ;-) Why?

  • We were on stage! As SAP NetWeaver enthusiast one of the highest things to achieve is being on stage at #DemoJam - really!
  • It was not only geek stuff on stage, we really had a customer business case to replace a cumbersome paper flow process. But of course we gamified this a little bit.
  • Everything worked out technically. The license plate picture got uploaded to the cloud, got analysed, our process was started, the UI5 screens worked out and ...
  • We didn't forget our text :-D Which was quite the opposite compared to our first rehearsal that afternoon, I just couldn't remember my first line ...
  • Just in time - we had all components working together on the Friday before DemoJam Tuesday.
  • We managed to get our show within 6 minutes.
  • We got supported by Peter Peshev and his team to get the cloud working for our scenario.
  • I was allowed to play with trucks and Lego on stage during SAP TechEd.
  • The audience cheered for us during and after our show.
Thank you for having us on stage and for all that cheering during and after the performance.

Leo and I will work on blogs that explain what and how we have realized the #GarbageCollector.

By the way - colleague Sven van Leuken created his own movie and included the intro from Ian and me cleaning up the Lego mess afterwards.

SAP TechEd 2013, the best and strangest experience ever

SAP TechEd 2013 - The best but also the strangest SAP TechEd ever Together with 10 colleagues I visited SAP TechEd in November 2013. Tim Burchartz - Jaap van de Mheen - Frank Hammen - Michael Hardenbol - Steven Spronk Twan van den Broek - Roel van den Berge - Ted Castelijns - Maarten Kreijveld (Missing on the pic: Leo van Hengel and Wim Snoep, who attended one day due to busy customer schedule) Best Team CloudSitter won the SAP InnoJam on Monday with an app that monitors new born baby’s on their wellbeing. Premature babies have an higher risk on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome , that’s why we came up with a sensor that tracks heartbeat, temperature and breathing. Information is stored in a central database in which thresholds can be validated. If there is reason to warn, the mobile app sends an alarm and changes color. Time to check upon your child.
