Today we had a successful SAP CodeJam in Frankfurt showing the End-2-End process of OData Service Development using SAP NetWeaver Gateway and the development of an SAPUI5 consumer application.
From 29 registered participants we were able to welcome 24 at our location.
This means that more than 85% showed up which I found very impressive.
A big thank you from our side to the participants for taking the time.
The location that has been organized and sponsored by our partner iProCon was nicely located in the city center of Frankfurt in walking distance from the main station. The meeting room was in the ecos office center. From here we had a nice view on the skyline of Frankfurt.
Getting your hands dirty …
Christoph Kraemer and I started with two short presentations about SAP NetWeaver Gateway and SAPUI5 that were both followed by a hands-on part where we developed a small OData sample service based on SAP’s EPM demo model as described in the following how-to-guides How to write a simple SAPUI5 application leveraging the SAPUI5 Theme Editor and How to Develop a Gateway Service using Code based Implementation .
After approx. one hour we continued with a Q&A session covering various topics around SAP NetWeaver Gateway and SAPUI5.
Now it was time to code. Here we were able to leverage a SAP NetWeaver Gateway demo system in the cloud that had been provided by the product group of SAP Netweaver Gateway. As you can see the participants had intense discussions.
Coding was only stopped for having some good sandwiches. That gave us some time for additional discussions. Unfortunately I was too late to take pictures from the buffet …
We saw a lot of working services and SAPUI5 applications at the end of the day. From what I saw, the participants seemed to be satisfied with what they were able to learn and to try out by getting their hands dirty.
What’s next ?
So I am looking forward to many upcoming successful customer and partner projects leveraging SAP NetWeavaer Gateway and SAPUI5.
