SAP pioneers the use of ‘Massive Open Online Courses’ (MOOC) in the business world with a new training called Introduction to Software Development on SAP HANA: It introduces you to native programming on SAP’s in-memory platform featuring the following topics:
- Developing Applications for SAP HANA
- Database Tasks, Loading, and Modeling
- SQLScript Basics
- Exposing and Consuming Data with OData
- SAP HANA Advanced Development Options
The course is open to everyone – SAP internal, customers, SAP ecosystem including University students. It complements existing offerings from SAP Education. Running for six weeks, starting on May 27, 2013, it requires half a day of study time per week. With a mix of online lectures, self-tests,
weekly assignments, and online discussion forums, the new course aims to provide an experience similar to traditional classroom training, but with
greater flexibility for the learner and virtually unlimited scalability.
While the course is intended for software developers who are new to SAP HANA, we recommend that you obtain an understanding of the fundamental concepts of in-memory data management before the course begins. To that end, we have prepared warm-up lectures on this topic which are available as of today.
Please sign up at openSAP today, engage in a common learning experience with members of the SAP ecosystem, and help spread the word about SAP HANA – the world’s best platform for rapid development and real-time business.
