First ever #SAP #CodeJam in #NOIDA @Amity University – Event Summary

On July 27th 2014, we hosted SAP HANA Cloud with HANA XS the First ever CodeJam in Amity University – Noida.


Background Information

I raised a request for Codejam by contacting Craig for SAP HANA Cloud with HANA XS somewhere in April 2014. Craig Cmehil helped me get in touch with Padmashree B who is a SAP expert and have conducted various Codejams in India.

Two SAP experts and 20+ motivated participants met in the CodeJam. After morning tea and light snacks the event started with giving a token of appreciation from Amity University to Padmashree B and Ashitha MS, then the event was taken ahead with a short introduction about SAP HANA Cloud with HANA XS and then the participants started working on their respective exercises, in this CodeJam none of the participant faced any issue with the internet (thanks to Amity University for providing 10 mbps dedicated line for the event) and with the configuration as we had a very good ratio of experts and participants where all the small issues were resolved.





I would like to take opportunity to talk about the SAP HANA Cloud with HANA XS CodeJam event with some useful insights into how  SAP HANA Cloud with HANA XS CodeJams are usually being run.

Food at CodeJam

One of the reasons SAP CodeJam events are famous for is “The Food” and this event was no different. While taking a break from coding to have some good food, it was also time for networking – developers coming together, exchanging their ideas, sharing their learning’s.


Networking is one of the strongest pillar of CodeJam and Amity University waiting Lounge was a great place to do that.

It was another great learning and community event in a relaxed atmosphere and for me – another important learning on SAP HANA Cloud with HANA XS.

The beat feature about CodeJams is that you bring your own laptop so once you are back at your company everything is already installed and you can start using your newly gained skills immediately.


It is a very casual yet important learning. It allows us to meet interesting people from the SAP community. Additionally, CodeJams usually take place at interesting locations which you normally do not get access to.

There were two awesome SAP Experts Padmashree B  and Ashitha MS from SAP Labs Bangalore & Many thanks to Padma and Ashitha for their time & assistance.

In summary, we see the event as a complete success. Everyone learned
and was able to get a glimpse into the very near future. Furthermore, developer meetings are a good means of building a network of our own.
