My impressions …
This was my first SAP event I attended in my 10 months I’m working with SAP now, and I have to say that the only thing I didn’t enjoy in the past days was the weather.
Everything else was just great, a lot of interesting sessions, meeting people of course – finally arriving at the Marktstube after a little train-odyssey and getting to meet all the people behinde the names (Craig, Brian, Mark, Ulli, Gregor, Thomas, Eddy, …) was awesome! Definitely community feeling!
Others have written extensively about various sessions already, so I just want to add some content that has not been online yet – a few pictures about what the soon to come SAP gui patch will bring …
ABAP Editor Update
There are quite a few changes, some of them will be in the upcoming patch, others will not (because of required server changes) – don’t ask me which changes will be in the patch, I can’t remember exactly. But here are some teasers for you, some new features of the gui captured on the presentation screen:
On the first picture you can see various changes. Next to the line numbers (!) there are change markers to show you the edited/added lines in your code. And this example also shows that for code elements like FORM you get a whole code fragment just by writing “form” and pressing enter.
Let the waiting begin …
While most of this features are todays state-of-the-art (and therefore well-known already), it is great to see them getting introduced to the ABAP world finally! I’m looking forward to working with this new editor and all the “new” features it will offer!
If everything goes alright the gui patch with the first changes will be available for download in two weeks from now, so keep your eyes peeled for it 🙂
