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.
