SAP HANA Cloud Integration (SAPHCI) CodeJam and podcast

SAP HANA Cloud Integration (SAPHCI) now public available, enough reason for a CodeJam and podcast episode.

June 27th, Guido Koopmann and Igor Mitrovic organized a CodeJam on SAP HANA Cloud Integration, SAP HCI in short. With about 30 participants it is clear that the topic is hot, mostly due to the fact that the cloud integration solution is now available separately. No need to first buy one of the other SAP cloud solutions, the tight integration with SAP HANA Cloud Platform is gone.

The #SAPRiver Of Dreams

Eindhoven, March 7, SAP CodeJam on SAP River

SAP specialists Inbal Zilberman and Yoram Hod travelled to Eindhoven to share the passion and enthusiasm in aCodeJam on SAP River with us. Inbal already wrote about her experiences in a summary blog.

Is SAP River the new ABAP? Join a local CodeJam or apply for a free account on and follow the tutorials to find out yourself. Initially it might be a bit scary, but the tutorials will lead the way, no need to have hydrophobia. Let’s recall a song by Billy Joel – The River Of Dreams:

To the river so deep

The SAP River might look deep or filled with wild water, but as SAP Developers we are looking for something, the future of SAP Development. No need to be afraid – just jump into the water and swim!
