openSAP launched in May 2013 with its first course Introduction to Software Development on SAP HANA and since then over 70,000 users have enrolled in the course. The presenter of the course, Thomas Jung, became somewhat of a celebrity in SAP circles due to the popularity of his delivery style and value* that this course has brought to software developers looking to upskill and develop on SAP HANA.
The eagerly awaited follow-up course Next Steps in Software Development on SAP HANA is now open for enrollment and begins on October 7 for a six week run. Thomas Jung returns, with Rich Heilman, to openSAP to take developers deeper into each of the major topics around SAP HANA native development. Participants will explore the many advances in the programming model and tooling that came with SAP HANA SPS6, SPS7, and SPS8. During the course, Thomas and Rich will use SAP HANA studio as well as several new Web-based tools (for example, the Web-based Development Workbench, SAP HANA Lifecycle Management, and the SAP HANA XS Administration Tool).
Thomas and Rich will also take participants beyond the basics of each of the programming models, allowing discussion of deeper, real-world patterns and anti-patterns. We will look at the architecture of applications that are not just read-only or analytic but also transactional or provide an interface with transactional systems. We will also look at the extended capabilities of SAP HANA, from beyond a database to a complete application platform.
Enrollment, learning content, final exam and Record of Achievement are provided free of charge. Participants will have the opportunity to complete hands-on exercises in a fee-based system environment as an optional add-on.
