As an avid coders, we have always been on the lookout for information outside our text books. The internet serves up a plethora of things we can learn. But nothing will replace seeing the code we learn from the screen take shape and form. The SAP seminar gave me this opportunity, as an avid Formula1 fan, the McLaren app on the iPad was certainly a ‘wow’ moment! SAP HANA, where we got to witness exactly how much there was to learn outside of our text books. SAP Teched and SAP Techniversity have just made it to my list of appointments on the calendar. We certainly enjoyed the seminar.
