Recently DJ Adam raised an important question in his blog post. Question:
“What can we do to burst the bubble, to help our ecosphere and encourage SAP to continue its journey outwards?”
Even though OpenUI5 is a great initiative, but in order to make OpenUI5 successful; SAP will need to reach a critical mass of front-end developers and open-source enthusiasts. These are the folks who are already using jQuery, Sencha and open-source tools. Stats from Google Trends can be used to effectively pin-point their location. Marketing efforts can be focused towards these important locations/places to generate better results in a short time.
Following are the top ten locations for jQuery, Sencha and open-source folks:
Other important locations are:
