Learning SAP for Pleasure?
Good day to everyone.
Its been some time since I blogged on SDN, apologies for the delay. I have been busy and couldn’t conribute as much as would have liked.
A thought has recently crossed my mind. I am not sure if many people out there share my thoughts, so i thought of writing a blog to see for myself.
In my 3 years of SAP experiance, I have been exposed to a variety of modules and technologies within SAP. I have had a chance to work briefly with some and more in detail with others. I have found that I am not always able to work on what i would like to most of the time. 🙂 I guess that most people would have faced a similar situation in the past.
To elaborate on this point, maybe I can give you an example. Suppose I have been working on Webdynpro ABAP, and during this time, I get to modify an Adobe Form. I would gather as much knowledge required for me to accomplish my immediate task (modifying the Adobe form). Also, suppose that, I have had an interest to work on Adobe forms more in detail, but since my customer is not implementing it, I couldn’t, do it in the customer system and my present company has very little resources to afford a test system.
In case of the above scenario, I am just wondering how many of us would…..
A ) Learn, or Try to Learn just by reading.
B ) Try to use SAP Trial version etc. which wouldn’t cost too much money.
C ) Go for Some Professional training and spend some Big Money.
Remember, this is just for your personal curiosity. You won’t be learning Adobe forms for implementation in Client projects or any work internal to your company.
I would also be interested in knowing your thoughts of how often you would like to learn something new…… again for your own knowledge.
