Best UI5 app ever ...


I once saw PacMan built in UI5 at a CodeJam. And 5 minutes after that we got a demo of SAP Sports One, also built in UI5. Sure, we all know that SAP Fiori applications are built with SAPUI5. And yes, it is a powerful framework to use building your applications. But when I saw PacMan and Sports One, I realised that the framework offers much more than I expected.

That’s how Suzanne van den Bergh and I came up with the idea to create the UI5 Top 5. A community search for the best UI5 app ever.




Rules of the game

You can either use SAPUI5 or OpenUI5, no PowerPoint, Axure or Build. But submit working apps only. Send in your app in the comments of the YouTube video or in the comments of this blog. Or send me a tweet (@tbroek) and use the #UI5Top5 hashtag. Make sure you do so before March 15.

You can send in your app with a working URL to the actual app. Or you can send me a recording of your app. If you have any question on how to enter the game, please let me know.

Categories

We’ll strive to make it an honest community competition. And as you cannot compare apples and oranges, we’ll probably create some categories like:

  • Business use
  • Gaming
  • Private use

Challenge us and make it as hard as possible for the judges ;-)

Announcement of the UI5 Top 5

We will announce the UI5 Top 5 at the UI5con in Frankfurt on March 24.



Validation criteria

The jury, soon to be announced, will validate all submissions on the following criteria:

  • Creativity
  • User Experience
  • Technical challenges


Ready for the game? Send in your best UI5 app before March 15 and maybe you’ll make it to the UI5 Top 5 of best UI5 apps ever!

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

Hiking the Grossvenediger with The Next View

In 2014 The Next View celebrates its 5th anniversary. And we did that in style. We all took off to Austria and hiked the Grossvenediger, top 4 of highest mountains in Austria. Hiking route The first day we hiked in pretty good weather conditions to Defreggerhaus. The second day, the hike to the actual summit (The Next Summit ;-) we woke up early and found out that snow covered our route. But that didn't undermine our spirit. We took off and had a great hike. We almost made it to the top, but unfortunately weather conditions (snow and wind) worsened and with the sign in sight we had to return. Look very close, you can see a grey cross somewhere in the top left corner ;-) Back to a safer spot to take our group picture. With Schnapps of course ;-) What an amazing experience. Hiking a 3666 meter high mountain was something completely new for me. Doing that with colleagues was really awesome! More pictures in my Grossvenediger album .
