Those of you who listened to the keynote from Vishal Sikka during SAP TechEd 2010 in Las Vegas already know that we wanted to get rid of the current process for joining Code Exchange.

In that process you need to actually print out the TOU document, sign the paper and send it to SAP by fax or scan it and send it by email to SAP.

Finally we were able to remove the last hurdles to make this obsolete.

Within the next weeks (most probably December this year) we’ll move over to a click-through process where the SCN users just need to click the “accept” button to get access to the Code Exchange platform. No more paper work.

I’ll post another blog on SCN once it’s available, but wanted to give you a heads-up on what will be available soon. We try to be as transparent and open to you as possible and I want to thank the SCN community and specifically the SAP Mentors for all their engagement and the questions around Code Exchange.

Looking forward to see some of you at the SAP Inside Track in Netherlands at Nov. 20th where I’ll provide some more details around Code Exchange and it’s status.

    I have some very interesting ABAP developments for which I would like to search for collaboration in the community, but up to now I hesitate to accept the “Terms of Use Agreement For SAP Code Exchange”, because I don’t really understand them. I have tried to translate all that forensic bafflegab into normal language, but I am not happy with the result.
    May be you are so kind to translate it into ABAP? 🙂

      I’ve been at the SAP Inside Track in Brussels this year and talked about the TOU. I’ve summarized the outcome and put the slides I’ve presented there in a video. You can get that here:

      Hope this helps you to better understand the “legalese”.

      Next Saturday I’ll be at SAP Inside Track in Netherlands and present an update on Code Exchange. Maybe you want to (if you can) join. More here:

      I’ll also be at the Community Day in Bangalore (prior TechEd) and also present Code Exchange. More information here:
