Hi all

After two years organizing the SAP Inside Track Barcelona event online, we were looking forward to  meeting again in person. This finally happened on Friday October 28th at the 6th edition of the SAP Inside Track Barcelona 2022 where more than 60 attendees including colleagues, collaborators, speakers, professionals and partners, dedicated a full day to learning the latest in SAP and had a chance to put into practice their skills at the SAP Code Jam session that took place in the afternoon.

Since our first SAP Inside Track Barcelona was created and promoted in 2017, the event’s organizing team has welcomed new members and more partners have become involved in promoting the event. The challenges of organizing an event like the SITBCN are many. Launching the call for papers to find speakers, coordinating the speakers, supervising the on-site requirements, coordinating the sponsors, publicizing the event and generating interest and putting together an interesting and varied agenda require forward planning and time dedication. All the hard work paid off in the end as the 6th edition of the SITBCN closed with a record number of attendees.

This year the event was shared with AUSAPE BTP Special Interest Group members as the

2022 October meeting.

This year agenda was divided into two sections. In the morning, the agenda included six plenary sessions whereas the afternoon took a practical approach through a SAP CodeJam on the topic of SAP Integration Suite.

Morning agenda:

9:05A Hitchhiker's Guide to SAP Fiori User Experience and its TechnologiesOliver Graeff

We would like to thank all our speakers for taking part in the event and sharing best practices and knowledge on the latest innovations regarding SAP BTP. Equally interesting was the presentation about the SAP freelance community and the research conducted on the different profiles.

Some of SAP Inside Track Barcelona attendees were kind enough to share with us their views on the event, here is one example:

 

After lunch, it was time to get into the SAP BTP CodeJam, an exercise about SAP Integration Suite and how we can use it to connect systems and services in our landscape. Run by Antonio Maradiaga, Developer Advocate, who explained the challenge to the participants and was available to solve their queries and questions. You can see all the Instructions to work in this CodeJam were posted here

Also a SAP employee and SAP CodeJam BTP participant was happy to share his insights about the workshop:

An event like this would not be possible with the continued support from our sponsors.

We’d like to thank the following companies for helping us make the SITBCN a reality:

  • Books sponsors: SAP Press offered 6 free e-books and Espresso Tutorials a one year free subscription were drawn between all event attendees. Winners: Didac Sales, Leire Osa, Kontoulis Panagiotis, Carles Viaplana, Stefano Passaro, Jose Muñoz and Andrea Aymami.

It wasn’t all hard work, speakers and organizers enjoyed a pre-event dinner at the Restaurant La Pomarada. The SAP local community has been growing online in the past 2 years due to the pandemic conditions and this time, some of new SITBCN friends that regularly join the monthly stamstich meet-ups, registered to attend our event and it was great to meet them for the first time face to face. We shared good conversations and met new colleagues.

Last but not least, we would to invite to all of you to join the Barcelona Group, our recently created group at SAP Community, it is our objective to make it our regular meeting point to share SAP related information amongst Barcelona members.

The group has been created as a central point of information of this local community to share news, to generate debate and solve questions about any SAP related topics and to help SAP professionals network so that they can share SAP knowledge, case studies, or just cry together in the next SAP universal ID update 😊.

Needless to say, the group is open to anyone! So, help us grow by sharing it with all your SAP contacts.

And now, only to start to think to schedule next SAP Stammtisch Barcelona meetings to design next SAP Inside Track Barcelona 2023!

Looking forward to meeting you soon in any of our events/meetings, SAP Stammtisch Barcelona and/or SAP Inside Tracks around the globe. This SAP local community is growing, and we would like to growth with you ¡

Best

Enric, Lluis, Imma and David
