If you are looking to get started with HANA and hit the ground running when creating your first HANA based application, look no further. The HANA Distinguished Engineers(HDEs) are hosting a full day pre-conference session before the ASUG Annual Conference. This pre-conference session called SAP HANA Modeling End-to-End Deep Dive will take place on Monday, May 13th 2013 from 8:30am till 5:00pm. Although the title might lead you to believe that this session is purely about HANA Modeling, I want to point out that it is so much more. We have full day of all kinds of HANA goodness planned for the attendees.
It is also important to note that this session is BYOD(Bring Your Own Device). We will provide the backend HANA system running on AWS, but we need the attendees to bring their own laptop to use for the hands-on sections. We will supply the software for the SAP HANA Studio as well as additional tools, such as SAPUI5, and ABAP Development Tools(aka ABAP in Eclipse). We only ask that you come with your Windows laptop or virtual machine with a newer release of the SAPgui installed.
The day will start with an overview of HANA and why it is important. Next, we will explore the modeling concepts of HANA, including an overview of various views, such as Attribute, Analytic, and Calculation views. After the Modeling overview, we will start the exercises by first installing and configuring SAP HANA Studio on your laptop. Once you have the SAP HANA Studio installed, you will jump right into creating HANA views.
After lunch, we will break out into two tracks. Of course, it is your choice as to what track you would like to continue on. First there will be an Administration track which fellow HDE Serge Muts has mentioned here. Also, fellow HDE Thomas Jung and I will be hosting the developer track. In this track, you will learn about the SAP HANA Development perspective in SAP HANA Studio and how to create development artifacts. We will primarily use the SAP HANA Extended Application Services and see how we can create business logic, expose it as a service and consume those services from a user interface — all using only our SAP HANA server.
So if you are interested in HANA modeling, HANA Administration, or learning how to develop custom applications natively in HANA, this workshop is for you. Come join us on May 13th in Orlando. Sign up for the workshop here. See you there!
