1st Anniversary

It is hard to believe, but the world’s first book about Appian just got one year old.


Writing the book was an interesting and challenging endeavour, and I learned a lot along the way. I already had experience training Appian novices, but the demands of structuring complex thought processes for writing a book is a whole other level.

Then I had to learn how publishers work, many thanks to my publisher Packt at this point. This back and forth, to make sure a reader can follow my explanations, was nerve-racking sometimes.

As the book was published, I started something entirely new for me. I started the blog appian.rocks with now 19 posts and 7500 visitors. I joined Appian as they started the new Appian Community YouTube channel. And finally, Marcel and Sandro joined, and we started to record our podcast with now 5 Episode and now more than 500 downloads. And there is more to come … stay tuned!

What a success! I want to thank you all for your support, feedback, reactions, comments, and conversations.

To celebrate this event, I’m giving away 3 autographed copies of my book. I created an Appian Portal for you to sign up at the following link:


I will select the 3 lucky ones on May 22nd 2023. Good luck to you.

Yours, Stefan.
