Very Cool SAP & Adobe Train Race Event

My colleague Doug Massa is organizing a three-day pre-SAP TECHED training and contest designed to help you develop an enterprise application based on the SAP NetWeaver Gateway platform and related SAP partner technologies. The SAP Train Race will start in Paris with a one day, immersive training event focused on SAP NetWeaver Gateway and Adobe technologies . After the training teams will have the opportunity to get hands-on with the technology with the help of SMEs from SAP and partners, before joining us for a ride on the Elipsos Train Hotel to the SAP TECHED conference in Madrid. On the train, teams will develop an enterprise app using NetWeaver Gateway and Adobe Flash Builder. On the train will be SAP and Adobe resources to help with design and implementation questions and offer best practices for Gateway and Flash Builder, which includes FAQ and registration information.

Who Should Participate:

We are looking to have four Adobe teams with 2-4 people per team. The overall team should have working experience with SAP ABAP and be comfortable with Flash Builder 4.5. Ideally teams are attending Tech Ed Madrid. There is no cost for this event but it is encouraged for people attending Tech Ed Madrid to participate.

Sign Up Deadline: We would like to have all teams registered by Oct. 11th.
