One of the greatest shows on earth was organized at Friday the 27th of June. This show contained hands-on coding and catching up with old and new friends. Obviously I am talking about the SAP HANA Cloud Integration CodeJam organized and hosted by Q for IT and SAP. It was the first CodeJam on SAP HANA Cloud Integration and this topic is hot. When we opened the registration for the event, it was sold-out within 5 days.
The presenter of this CodeJam was Mr. Udo Paltzer from SAP A.G. He did a great job. Mr. Udo Paltzer is a very passionate man about his topic and also took time for the famous HANA Café NL Podcast by answering questions. The podcast was organized by Twan van Den Broek. A special thanks to both. You can listen to the podcast by clicking following link: http://saphanacafenl.podbean.com/e/s01e07-saphci-sap-hana-cloud-integration/
