I started working with ABAP eight years ago…long time for some, very short for others. Of course, I didn’t start my career by doing ABAP development…I started learning programming 11 years ago…when I was 20. I started with Visual Basic 6.0 and C++.
Sometimes I wonder…what would happened if I never got the option to start working using SAP? I would be programming of course…but surely on .NET or even PHP.
It might seem a little bit odd that I haven’t mention Ruby, but believe it or not…I learned Ruby just because of ABAP…When I read Piers Harding blog Binding other programming languages to ABAP I just knew I wanted to learn Ruby. Same thing happend with Flex, after reading Matthias Zeller blog Engaging User Interfaces with Adobe Flex.
So, SAP had changed my life in many ways. I have learned new programming languages, have meet a lot of friends…I couldn’t never have made two trips to TechEd right? If I were working using .NET or PHP…what could motivate me to attend a TechEd?Nothing I guess…
So…the big question is “What about you?” What you will be doing right now if you haven’t get the chance to work using SAP?
