Ideas for Stammtisch

Due pandemic situation many groups has started some virtual SAP Stammtisch events.

For example, in Barcelona we have started a virtual community with David Ruiz Badia and Lluis Salvador Suarez using discord. Thanks to being a virtual event we also have people from Mexico, Argentina, etc…

This community does one event per month where the members do presentations, quiz or follow-up related with SAP.

Normally this is and agenda:

  • Welcome and latest news from the SAP community with the SAP Champions David Ruiz Badia
  • Presentations about SAP products, use cases or technology (10/15 minutes per presentation)
  • Other sporadic topics about SAP

We are also thinking of recording part of these sessions to publish on YouTube.

You can see more information at https://www.sitbarcelona.com/ thanks to the website created by Lluis Salvador Suarez

Between events we also have an active community with some text channels on Discord where the members (actually more than 100) can ask questions or add interesting links.

With this post I would like to collect ideas from other Stammtisch to improve all Stammtisch communities.

For example, Communication technologies such as Skype / Zoom …, ideas for virtual events like quizzes, or collaborations.

All contributions will be very useful!

Thanks in advance!

    I would like to add some extra ideas:

    - https://gartic.io/: With this page you can create a list of words (minimum 50) one person draws the others tries to guess like pictionary.

    - https://myquiz.org/: To create an online quiz. You can add photos, explanations after results.

    Hi Enric! We don't do Stammtisch events in the US, to my knowledge. But, for example, our company hosts roundtable type events that are similar in structure. These are open to anyone and are just host/guest conversations (unrecorded), we're not trying to sell anything, LOL. :)

    We use Mural as a colab tool, to get some input on what topics to discuss. There is usually a theme, like DevOps or Fiori, but obviously we need to narrow down specific items of interest.

    I find that success of these events is largely based on the people and their participation than tools though. You could have most fantastic tools but if the participants just don't want to engage, the tools won't help much.

    Question for you: do you feel there is sort of an "online event fatigue"? What helps your events to draw attendance?

    Not sure if this is a regional thing but even in the old days it was a challenge get people into local ASUG meetings, for example (and there was a free lunch and giveaways involved! :) ). Now it's easier logistically but I feel more and more like "ugh, another Zoom call".

    Thank you!
