Kick off VNSG focus group SAP Custom Development

March 25, Kickoff VNSG SAP Custom Development Focus group. A group that focuses on developers was still missing and is now setup by developers:
  • Jan Willem Kaagman - chair
  • Fred Verheul
  • Jan Penninkhof
  • Roel van den Berge



Kickoff of the Kickoff by Jan-Willem




A huge show up proved that there is enough interest to get together around topics like:
  • ABAP in Eclipse
  • ABAP for HANA
  • SAP Fiori (in close collaboration with the User Experience Focus Group)
  • Offshore development

First talk of the day was by Ben Meijs, about ABAP in Eclipse.



Some highlights

  • Development support with quick fixes
  • Add bookmarks in your code
  • Compare versions
  • Integration of all the new IDE’s


Next was Jens Weiler about ABAP in HANA



Some highlights

  • You don’t have to change existing code (except if you have very specific database statements)
  • Follow the golden open SQL rules


A great moment for HANA Café NL to sit together with the speakers and recap the event in our third podcast.





Podcast starts with reactions from attendees, continues with Ben in Dutch. From 14:43 Jens is interviewed in English.

And of course, we ended the successful start of our new born focus group with some drinks.

SAP TechEd Top 10 (2010)

Here we go, Top 10 SAP TechEd topics 2010. Just like in 2009 and in 2008 . Based on the 417 sessions published on the site I counted the hit ratio on the below listed topics. Not to be taken too seriously, just for fun ;-) (1, 1) SAP NetWeaver (93 sessions) (2, 10) Business Objects (45) (3, 6) ABAP (32) (5, 4) BPM (22) (4, 5) BI (18) (-, -) Sybase (17) (-, -) Mobile (15) (-, -) PI (13) (7, 9) Web Dynpro (12) (7, 10) Enterprise services (8) (-,-) Microsoft (8) Runners up : Sybase and mobile applications. Looking forward to play around with that next week. And as predicted : Microsoft. Droppers , not in the Top 10 anymore: Composition Environment (4 sessions, #8 in 2008, #9 in 2009), Java (4 sessions, #3 in 2008, #8 in 2009) and SOA (4 sessions, #2 in 2008, #6 in 2009). Sybase is no surprise. Just as Business Objects wasn't last year. Java dropped out of the Top 10. Looking back at SAP TechEd 2009 you could predict that to happen. Last year all Java sessions were hidden somewher
