Learn, Hack & Play Day on Friday, January 13, 2017 #SAPLearnHackPlay

Check-In 8:00 AM / Sessions Start 9 AM / Closing session 5 PM / BBQ Party 6 PM

On Friday we will have Learn, Hack & Play-Day. We will start with a bar camp-style ideation session, to build teams and to decide on a small scale IoT project to work on. During the day, different speakers offer intro sessions from SAP D-Shop (“Developer’s Heaven"), ideation and idea visualization. We will have a Sketching for IT session, which helps every attendee to easier draw a summary of ideas and market it to the right people. The whole Friday gives you time to work on your projects in groups (or alone) you can play around with technology and gadgets from SAP D-Shop or just mingle with your colleagues. At 4:30 PM we expect a Keynote around IoT, and starting from 5pm, teams present their prototypes, both what the original idea was, and what you achieved on this day. A jury evaluates the projects. Party & (Winter) BBQ starts around ~6pm.

Kids Track #sitKids on Saturday, January 14,2017

Check-In 8:00 AM / Sessions Start 9 AM /Closing Networking Session (together with Adults) 4:30 PM

Inclusion and Diversity is more important than ever! If you are going to spend your weekend with us, why don’t you bring your family?
With #SitKids we would like to make a big step towards diversity and inclusion! We would like to create a colorful, diverse #sitKids where we give youngsters the chance to develop their technical understanding and skills, learn to work in groups with like-minded or different kids, while the adults join the regular SAP Inside track. We want to encourage kids to use their tecchi ability for relevant projects and not just to play around with their cellphone. Why should kids code? Code is one of the world’s most widely used languages, connected devices are already reshaping our world, kids learn better and faster when they’re young, Coding helps children to develop critical thinking skills and problem solving processes that are not only important in computer science, but also in life.… The list is long!
On this day we will have several work stations with following technologies:
* Makey Makey : (we have 2 sets). No previous knowledge required. Turn everyday objects into a “keyboard”. See video here. Always a winner with young kids. Look up the banana piano
* littleBits: Small electronic components that snap together with magnets. Only require basic knowledge of electronics and computing. Even has a module that connects to the Cloud.
* Lego Mindstorms: We have the EV3 kit. Build robots, program them, etc. You will need to have played with it a little before explaining it to kids.
* mBot Robot: Same category as Lego Mindstorms. Easy to build robot, can be programmed using the simple graphical Scratch language. Also good to come to the event with a bit of practice.
No worries regarding language! We will cover both, English and German!
After you have registered you will receive an email with a survey that asks you about details (e.g. if you want to bring your kid(s) (name, age, level), and if you would like to volunteer as an instructor)
