Recap CodeJam SAPUI5 's Hertogenbosch

SAP Sports One and SAPUI5

November 20, one day before the SAP Inside Track Netherlands (sitnl in short) 28 developers gathered at The Next View for an SAP CodeJam. Denise Nepraunig and Andreas Kunz lead us into the wonderful world ofsapui5. As a special feature we not only covered the UI5 basics but also got briefed on building custom controls. Like SAP did heavily with the SAP Sports One app:

SAPUI5 is often referred to together with SAP Fiori. Quite logical as SAP Fiori is built with SAPUI5. But a lot more is possible if you include other libraries or start building custom controls. Applications will have a total different look and feel compared to Fiori. The use case for Fiori is to deliver a user friendly interface on top of SAP functionality (all functionality!) that’s why the Fiori guidelines are very strict. But if you’re going to build a standalone app for a specific target group, you can leave the Fiori guidelines alone and still use the SAPUI5 framework. The Sports One app is a great example for this.

CodeJam recap

Heavy UI5 coding going on.


At CodeJam events you always meet a lot of serious looking people.


Fighting the custom control


And of course the CodeJam food. We did a bit different this time. In stead of preordering a lot of food and hoping everyone would shop up, we now asked the participants who wanted to stay for dinner. So with a bunch of pizza’s and some cola we really had a ‘developer event’ ;-)


Wrapping up the CodeJam with a HANA Café NL podcast episode, recorded in English


In this episode we covered
  • What does SAPUI5 mean to ‘traditional’ ABAP developers
  • How Phoenix and SAPUI5 are related
  • Project experiences about map integration into UI5 app
  • New features with running project runtime adaptation to enable keyusers to change a running UI5 app

Thanks to Denise, Andreas and the SAP CodeJam organization team (special shout out to Krishna Dalal) for reaching out to the development community.

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 .
