Resources for YRS 2012


To get help with any SAP tech, especially SAPUI5, you can get in touch with our remote mentors by using the #SAPYRS hashtag either on Twitter or on Google+. We have scheduled Google+ Hangouts twice daily – at 11 AM and 3 PM local time – where you can join in and ask your questions. You can also track and join the conversations here:



Have a great time and good luck!

SAP is proud to be the head sponsor of this year’s YRS Festival of Code. We are excited about the competition and what each one of you will be able to create. As a multinational software corporation, we make software that is used by organizations to manage their business operations and customer relations. Our developers are key in creating applications and software solutions that our customers can use to be successful in their fields. As a young developer participating in this event, you’ll have the opportunity to get in contact with some of our experts and learn directly from them.

To prepare for this exciting competition, check out the following resources that will help you get started on building engaging front ends for mobile and web apps based on HTML5 and JavaScript: 

1. Evaluation Package for UI Development Toolkit for HTML5 – Download Package

    The package includes:

  • A ‘demo kit’ application with documentation, samples and test suites
  • The runtime plus control libraries for Java servers and static web servers
  • SAPUI5 Application Development Tool to create SAPUI5 applications including wizards, templates, and previews

2. Getting started with SAPUI5 – Read blog

    This blog provides step by step instructions on how to set up a Beta version of SAPUI5 for use in Visual Studio and create a demo SAPUI5 app that retrieves data from the sales order management system (SAP ERP Sales Orders) and combines it with issues tracked in a SharePoint list.

3. SAPUI5 says “Hello OData” to NetWeaver Gateway – Read Blog

    This post describes how SAPUI5 can be used to connect to SAP NetWeaver Gateway and consume data from an SAP system using OData. If you have an OData source, it’s easy to bring information into your SAPUI5 controls. Read on for more info!

4. Using SAPUI5 on Neo (Cloud) – my blog series from developer to developer – Read Series

    Get first hand advise when working with SAPUI5 and SAP’s Cloud Platform (formerly referred to as Neo). The two blogs in the series will provide you with tips and tricks to get around issues that you may get into.

Use social media for additional support

SAP experts will be on hand to answer any questions via Twitter and G+ hangouts during the week of the event. Please make sure to use #SAPYRS when tweeting your questions (you may start using the hashtag now) or look for the Google Plus – SAP YRS Hangouts (we will have two sessions every day – the schedule will be posted shortly).
