The conference rooms in the High Tech Campus (Building 1) are named after eminent scientists. Our Jam session was held at “Curie”.
The day started in a timid note. Jammers (would be Jammers) were a little unsure of what to expect and a little shy in the beginning, but it soon changed.
Vlado presented a quick intro on HCP and opened the floor for coding.
Dobri ran through the installation and initial configuration steps, ensuring that everyone has the SDKs installed in their laptops, and that they could begin coding in Eclipse IDE.
As time elapsed, enthusiasm began to rise and we began to see participants opening up to ideas, asking questions and engaging themselves.
Lunch was served at the restaurant adjacent to the conference room.
Post lunch, we asked the participants to share their “hello world” applications. Many of the participants were well-versed and gave us more than just that.
To maintain the tempo and the energy we projected their app on the screen and asked them to explain how they did it.
We had quite a number of intriguing ideas and thoughts on SAP HANA Cloud development, from the participants. Such participation and enthusiasm show just how important these events are.
We didn’t expect to come up with the next generation of game changing applications in one Jam session, but it was essentially successful in taking the first steps and getting the folks (developers and consultants) connected. We are seeing a lot of activity around Hana Cloud these days, and this is only the beginning.
