Today I’ve started with a hands on session about Developing WebDynpro applications for Blackberry. We did an example application to approve Salesorders. What’s impressive is that you can develop an application that runs in the Web Browser and also on a WAP Device like Blackberry. The different Rendering is done by the WebAS J2EE server by device recognition. This session was well prepared and the example worked perfect. I finished at 11:15 and so I had time to explore the exhibition hall and to relax in the SDN Corner.
There I met Mark, http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/weblogs?blog=/pub/u/3294 [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] and Piers for lunch. We discussed a lot what improvements should be made to the SDN’s presence and TechEd in general. Here are my suggestions:
- Free, unrestricted W-LAN Internet access in the SDN Clubhouse
- Include the BoF Sessions in the TechEd Schedule
- Announce BoF Sessions at Session Theatres Schedule or Flipchart
- Extend also TechEd EMEA to 4 Days to hold overbooked sessions twice and to have one evening for the BoF Sessions
- Try out reservation for the Hands On sessions
In the afternoon I’ve joined the Hands on Session about Visual Composer. I think this is a good tool to do prototyping. You just search for the BAPI or RFC enabled Function Module and drag this into your iView. Then you add an Input From and an Output Table, deploy it, and your application is up and running.
That’s all from this year. As I know from normally good informed insiders the next TechEd will be in Vienna, I’m looking forward to see you there.
