CodeJam, let the coding begin!
Very recently leadership at SAP has continued to express the desire to put our developers together with those of our partners and customers as we did in the beginning 40 years ago and get back to our roots of innovation! Taking a further step in that direction we’ve decided it’s time to rekindle the infamous Hacker Night from years past into a whole new format called the CodeJam! So bring your laptop and come join your fellow developers — it’s time to code, hack and create!
That’s right the CodeJam is on, and we’ve planned a few of them coming up here real soon so you can get your hands on the coolest newest technology! Several people for the last few weeks have been asking about the CodeJam and what I’ve been up to since coming back to SAP and so now it’s time to start sharing a lot more of what all that is…
The CodeJam event is an opportunity to not only get your hands on something for free but to hang with your peeps to code and hack together! It’s chance to put yourself to the test and see what you can create! Not to mention rumor has it some of the “perks” of the original Hacker Night will be present as well 😉
We’re so happy to announce that these first few events will be taking place in April and even more so about where! The first up is in Berlin, Germany on April 23rd starting at 2 pm. Followed by another hosted by our friends over at Bluefin Solutions in London, England on the 25th starting at 11am and then our third taking place down in Tel Aviv, Israel on May 1st!
It’s an exciting time and we are going to try it all! From the SAP offices to one of our partners to one of the cool local places and to top it off we’re going to share it, when possible, in Code Exchange and without a doubt blogs will be there for sure!
Some of you might be wondering, what another in a family of events at SAP? Yes that’s right! DemoJam which started back in 2004 to showcase the coolest of the cool, followed by the InnoJam which launched just a couple of years back giving everyone an opportunity to explore, experience and innovate around all SAP technologies is now joined by the CodeJam designed to give developers a very targeted look into our platforms!
Speaking of focused, that’s what CodeJam is all about, it is a short compact format of 5 to 6 hours to develop, code and exchange with your peers on SAP technology. These first 3 events are actually going to be Mobile focused which means the entire SAP Mobility Platform but rest assured we have already started talking to folks about the next CodeJam with the HANA platform in place as well as a few other surprises to come in the very near future!
Grab your laptop, your mobile device, imagination and be sure to sign up soon, it’s free but limited seating!
