Become an ABAP in Eclipse Feature Explorer and earn the Explorer Badge
Remark: Mission ended on December, 31th.
But you can still post about ABAP in Eclipse and your experiences 😉
Last week we launched the ABAP in Eclipse Fan mission on SCN. With the ABAP in Eclipse Fan badge you are already showing your passion towards ABAP in Eclipse and your willingness to support the community. Now it is time to move on.
Today we are launching the Feature Explorer mission.
Your challenge is to discover the most important features of ABAP in Eclipse and share your experience with the community. Once you did that you will get the ABAP in Eclipse Feature Explorer badge.
So what are your tasks to accomplish the mission and get the Feature Explorer Badge?
With the latest ABAP in Eclipse version 2.24 ( ABAP Development Tools version 2.24 available now on Updatesite ) we offer a new interactive learning solution in Eclipse.
The feature explorer helps ABAP developers get onboarded in Eclipse. Read the blog Get more out of ABAP in Eclipse with the Feature Explorer

On the welcome screen you can start the interactive explorer tour. In the beginners tour we have 3 stages for you including the most important features you need. So click through the stages and enjoy your tour. Once you have accomplished the final stage you are done and you see an overview of the discovered features.
Step 3: Now it is time to show the community that you have completed the tour and share your experience and feedback.
