SAP Community keeps growing and growing and I am super excited for this Welcome Corner as it gives the chance for not only new members but everyone to get to know one another and connect with each other.
As my colleague @Katherine_K gives an overall introduction to the Group and what you can expect from it in her blog post, I’d like to take the opportunity to start a discussion about the different locations represented in our global SAP Community. I am interested to read where you are located and where SAP Community is spread around the world.
I am from Germany and currently living in Wiesbaden, which is the capital of one of the sixteen German states located in the west. After years of studies and living in different places, my hometown has caught me again with its charm and the closeness to friends and family has won me over.
But now I am curious, where are you tuning in from?
Hello @matevam welcome to SAP Community. I am Svea from Germany, and I live close to Mannheim. Where are you from? Did you see the location groups in SAP Community? Great way to connect with other locals at the same place. Check them out and find one nearby you live.
Also, you might want to learn how to upload a profile photo to change the avatar beside your name (optional but welcomed).
Hello @bitterma welcome to SAP Community. Did you see the location groups in Germany? There is one in Bamberg - I know not quite close to Nürnberg, but still a great chance to connect with other in the region. The group is managed by SAP Champion @jgleichmann - maybe you both can connect as well. 😉
Wishing you a warm welcome to SAP Community Groups @Ewelina_H - where in Poland are you based? We have some location groups for Poland - please feel free to take a look. You can read more about location groups, if interested as well as how to upload a profile photo or change the avatar beside your name (optional

Good morning - I am joining you from Fairfax, Virginia, just outside Washington DC. I live just outside the bustling Washington DC beltway. It's super busy, traffic-wise and people-wise here but it is a beautiful area. I am very fortunate to live close to 2 large airports, Washington Dulles and Ronald Reagan airport. I am very fortunate too to walk to work, grocery store, drug store, hair salon - you name it. Very unexpected in such a busy area.
I am originally from Kansas, just outside Kansas City, Missouri, which is well known for its excellent barbecue. Kansas has far less traffic than Northern Virginia, so at times I miss it, and I miss my family who still live in Kansas City.
Plus now my home town of Kansas City is a FIFA 2026 host city - https://www.kansan.com/sports/kansas-city-named-as-a-host-city-for-2026-fifa-world-cup/article_f530a... - never thought I'd see the day 🙂
Hi! Living in "HD-town" Heidelberg too! 🙂 It's famous for its old city center and castle and a real tourist attraction. Once finally constructed, it's quarter Bahnstadt is planned to be the world's biggest* housing estate for passive houses. So this town is definitely worth a visit!
Welcome to all our new members!
I'm tuning in from Galway, a county in the west of Ireland.
I've lived in every province of Ireland at some point, Ulster, Munster, Leinster and for the longest time here in Connacht. My local village has a wonderful community spirit, a bit like here!! I am within walking distance to shops, restaurants, pubs.
Looking forward to interacting with more members here!
I'm British, from Barnsley in South Yorkshire, in England, which means my native accent is quite distinctive. As I spent many years in the South of England, I can also speak with a Home Counties accent.
20 years ago, my family and I moved to (near) Basel in Switzerland. I tend now to speak Home Counties English as well - so that the none-native-English speakers can understand me! We're currently waiting for the Federal government to process our Swiss citizenship application. All other steps are complete and approved, so maybe, just maybe, by then end of this year I'll be Swiss.
Basel and its surroundings are quite cosmopolitan. There's a wide range of nationalities here - 1 in 5 is a foreigner.
