If the title of this blog sounds familiar, then chances are good that you have attended session CD251 at one of the TechEds this year. This session focuses on introducing new development technologies (Persistent Objects, Enterprise Services, Model Classes, Web Dynpro ABAP), but in a connected, practical example. This way the session could touch on cross-technology topics like transactionality, cross-component usage, and model re-use. The session was designed for developers who have a good 4.6C level of ABAP development skills, but who want to update those skills to the SAP NetWeaver 7.0 world.
So “delta training” for ABAP developers has long been an interest of mine. I have ABAP 46C to 640 Delta Training in the past and wrote something Next Generation ABAP Development Book as well. I also thought it would make a useful TechEd session – leading to the creation of CD251. Now I would like to extend much of that same content to a wider audience by offering it as an on-line E-Learning.
There are some obvious advantages to attending a session at TechEd. You get to participate in the hands-on exercises directly and you can ask questions of your lab partner and of the instructors. However the main disadvantage is the time limit. So even if you had a chance to attend CD251, I encourage you to have a look at this E-Learning. Not restricted by the 4 hour time frame, I was able to dig deeper into certain topics.
This series I did was designed to provide different content than the TechEd session it was built upon; however don’t forget that many sessions during TechEd were recorded and are available on the Virtual TechEd 07 page within SDN.
Eventually each chapter of this E-Learning will be added to the SDN E-Learning Catalog. Once the videos are hosted on SDN I will place links to them here as well. Until that time, I offer them in a downloadable format.
