Earn Cheers from Your Peers

Submission Deadline Extended to September 20!

It's time for the ultimate geek competition: DemoJam.

Submit your most inspiring, innovative, or technically superior demo for the chance to win fame and fortune! OK, just fame.
And maybe a little glory, if that’s how you define hearing fellow programmers howling your name.

Here’s how it works: You submit a cool demo (see the rules below). The DemoJam selection committee invites the best submissions to compete live, on stage, at SAP TechEd &&
d-code Las Vegas, Berlin, and/or Bangalore. The winning demo is the one with the loudest screams from the audience.

Finalists receive two passes to the SAP TechEd && d-code 2014 location at which they’re invited to compete, with full access to all sessions, including hands-on workshops and technical lectures.

Want to show your coding skills to the entire
SAP ecosystem?

DemoJam Participation and Submission Details

Rules for DemoJam

  • No sales presentations allowed. Violators will have their names and photos posted on Twitter with hashtag #missedthepoint.
  • Make sure your demo is original. Show us something that solves a real problem and could benefit SAP customers. And use at least one SAP technology or application in the demo.
  • The demo code must run. PowerPoint slides won't cut it.
  • Keep it short – six minutes max.
  • Choose no more than two people to demo your code.
  • A maximum of two people may present the demo onstage.
  • There are two ways SAP employees can participate in DemoJam:

    1. If they created a demo in collaboration with an SAP customer, SAP partner, or an external individual or organization not linked to SAP.

    2. If they created a demo during one of the several official SAP hackathon or coding challenges throughout the year.


Submission Conditions

  • Submit a screen cam of your demo with voiceover. We will not consider demos without voiceover or those longer than 6 minutes. Note: Your demo screen cam will be made publicly available for viewing.
  • Indicate the SAP TechEd && d-code 2014 event(s) where you'd like to compete (if selected, you may compete in all three):
    Las Vegas, October 20–24
    Berlin, November 11–13
    Bangalore, Q1
  • Finalists get two complimentary SAP TechEd && d-code 2014 Full Conference registrations. All travel expenses are the responsibility of the competitor.
  • Submit your demo by Saturday, September 20.
    (Deadline has been extended)
  • If you created a demo during an "official" SAP InnoJam, coding challenge, or hackathon at SAP or with SAP during 2014, you're in luck: Entries in these events will receive +1 bonus point during the selection process. Entries that won one of those events will receive +2 bonus points. Demos created at these events therefore have a higher chance of being chosen to compete at DemoJam, although selection is not guaranteed.
