The month of May brings along a ray of sunshine and along with stepping into warmer days we were able to conduct 9 SAP CodeJams. This month, we conducted 9 events, in 8 different cities, and in seven different countries. We covered five different topics this month, which included: SAP with IoT, ABAP for SAP HANA, ABAP in Eclipse, SAP HANA Cloud Platform, and SAP HANA XSA. Each of our events are designed to focus on a single topic, allowing participants to get familiar with one specific SAP platform or technology at time.
The SAP CodeJam team, would like to take this time to thank you, because of developers like you, we are able to continue conducting these events.
Where have we been?
”The most I liked was the hands-on coding done in the event. Normally, such events just explain the code and demo on their machines but your event was great providing devices for practice.”
SAP CodeJam Singapore, May 7th
“I liked most the ability to try out new tools, based on perfectly prepared and documented exercises and be supported by a great team.”
SAP CodeJam Kontich, May 10th
“Really liked the fact that it wasn’t too technical yet wasn’t just a PowerPoint presentation as well. I liked the availability of experts (developers themselves) answering questions.”
SAP CodeJam Freiburg, May 12th
What’s new to SAP CodeJam?
SAP HANA XSA:
Many of you may know that in the month of April we launched a four-event European tour in April launching our latest topic, SAP HANA XSA, with the topic becoming publically available to request starting May 1st.
So what’s new to the topic? SAP HANA XSA offers new developer tooling, the OData support has been expanded, and there are major architecture updates such as faster deploys.

Not sure what SAP CodeJam is?
SAP CodeJam is a 5 to 6 hours event where a small group of developers get together for an afternoon of networking, learning, and coding in an ultra-casual environment all for free. Attendees get a chance to share and expand their knowledge and collaboratively develop with SAP technologies, platforms and tools under the watchful guidance of an expert. The events are developer community focused and supported by SAP, exploring technologies available through the SAP Developer Center.
