New SAP HANA Course for Developers as “MOOC” opened for registration today

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
  • Exposing and Consuming Data with Server-Side JavaScript
  • 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.

      Hi Bernd

      I liked the openHPI in-memory data management course a lot so I'm very happy to sign up for this. Although I'm not a developer, who knows, maybe I'll start developing again after following this course 🙂 .

      Best regards

      Tom

      This is an exceptional initiative and am sure if SAP opens up training for new products via this route the client and partner adoption will be much higher.

      I'm enrolled , thanks guys for your effort and time. I have AWS account setup , my understanding from HANA Dev manual that access to , HANA XS (Extended application services) is not meant for public, So in this case I wonder how we should give a test drive.

      following my previous comment , I was referring to this statement by SAP on developer_manual

      "Application development with SAP HANA Extended Application Services (SAP HANA XS) is currently only available as an SAP-led project solution, for pre-approved customers and partners. This applies to server-side JavaScript programming, support for ODATA and XMLA, Web server features and the Web application development environment."

      any idea how to test HANA XS part of your course lessons on AWS Trail access to HANA ONE

      Hi,

      I have the AWS setup since a couple months ago, you have access to the majority of the XS features you describe above. Please follow the link in my posting below to check out the tutorial videos for how to use the various HANA XS features.

      Regards,

      Brilliant! I have been following Thomas Jung's excellent video tutorials on SAP HANA while playing with my own AWS HANA system lately, but will supplement it with this course!

      Btw, here's the link to Thomas' tutorials:

      I have completed one week of the course, and find it very worthwhile.  Can new lessons be made made available earlier than scheduled?

      Post this question on discussion section of your selected course(open.sap.com) , You will get direct quick  answer for your questions

      How necessary is having hands-on-access to HANA through the cloud in doing the course?

      Author's profile photo Clemens Link

      You can do the full course incl. the weekly assignments and the final exam without hands-on-access to HANA to receive a record of achievement. Of course it does make a lot of sense to practice based on the exercises shown by Thomas in the lectures und so deepen your knowledge.

      Cheers,
