Where is my place in SAP UI5 as an experienced ABAP developer?

I have held a session in SAP Forum 2014 named SAP’s new user experience, agile and mobile solutions. Thanks to community many people attended and we all enjoyed the session. Started with simplification and Consumerization approach which is early introduced and led by Bill McDermott Empathy Lines the Path to Simple.

With the help of simplification approach we tried to digest SAP’s strategy over new user experiences and transformation of existing ones.

At this point we have discussed SAPUI5 and further, because Fiori will be name for new user experience and SAP is intensively working on the topic, however with the help of SAPUI5, “Renovation” should be covered by old pals: ABAP developers.

I am strongly encouraging all the ABAP developers to join immediately SAPUI5 environment. If you guys have experience on JAVA as well please, visit here and start to develop now.    http://openui5.org/getstarted.html

Or you have only deep pure ABAP experience, no problem. New SAP NetWeaver Visual Composer will transform you in 5 minutes into an SAPUI5 developer. Please watch videos in this place and do not hesitate to contact me if you face any issues.

Finally; old guns, new era is saluting us with new tools, let’s join the party !

Cheers,

      Hi Sarhan,

      nice blog, short.. but nice. Don't you think it would be more informative if you add your own way to it and talk about the pitfalls to avoid?

      Hi Jagaa,

      Yes abap is old, but very important and being used in all SAP customers and will be used for many years. Also UI5 is very much consuming abap developed sources as well. So keep learning abap, and at the same time improve your SAP UI5 skills as well.

      Cheers,

      Hi Dilip,

      You are the future of SAP. SAP CEO Bill McDertmott, many times highlighted that, SAP will be a cloud company powered by HANA. And the User experience will be Fiori. Fiori developed by HTML5, Java and other tools. So rush into your new journey.

      Good luck,

      Sarhan, @beyanet_tr

      Hello Sarhan, Rightly said, ABAPers should learn UI5, but there is a bit of problem here, First and foremost being SAPs experience with the UI experiments 🙂 . Jokes apart, I think there is a big learning curve if one wants to learn UI5 since it requires knowledge of script that is very difficult and time consuming to code in. So even though it is the perfect combination to have ABAP+UI5 knowledge (as you mentioned in your previous response, Future of SAP)..., the best suited folks for this jump are those who are new to either of spaces, should learn both (that is what I am encouraging my team to do which luckily is new to SAP)... or an experienced UI5 developer to learn ABAP if he doesn't already know...

      Cheers...!!
