Highlights for developers attending SAP TechEd 2016
This year, SAP TechEd will be celebrating its 20th anniversary! It’s been two decades where participants have had the opportunity to learn, network and experience firsthand the latest and greatest in tech from SAP. And this year is no different, we have a lot of exciting opportunities for you to learn new skills and get hands-on training with the help of the experts! Take a look below and make sure to sign up or mark your calendars:
SAP InnoJam: the theme this year is Education and Research (same theme for all locations). You may register as a team (max 5 people) or as an individual (we will assign you to a team). You will have the chance to choose your challenge on the first day of InnoJam and will have 30+ hours to build a working prototype. Six teams will be chosen as finalists on the last day of InnoJam and invited to present at DemoJam where the audience will select the ultimate winner. For a quick overview of the theme, read this blog. To register for InnoJam, click here.

DemoJam: if you are selected as one of the six finalists from InnoJam, you will get a unique opportunity to showcase your prototype to the TechEd audience.

Educational sessions: this year’s program includes lectures and hands-on sessions covering the latest on SAP’s technology, platforms and tools. SAP experts will show you what they have been working on – they may even give you a glimpse into what will be coming in the near future! You can use the Agenda Builder tool to help you identify sessions of interest and help you organize your time at SAP TechEd.
AppSpace: you’ll find this area in the Build zone on the show floor. This is an area for you to get started with SAP HANA Cloud Platform, SAP HANA, SAP UI5 and IoT with the help of the experts. We will have laptops available on a first come, first serve basis loaded with the necessary tools and with step by step tutorials to help you every step of the way. As you complete tutorials, you’ll earn points towards cool prizes!
SAP CodeJam mini-editions: these are 1-hour hands-on sessions covering a variety of topics aimed at helping you learn and get familiar with SAP’s dev tools and technologies. SAP experts will be leading the sessions. They will be guiding you through exercises and helping you as you explore and build your apps. There will be two CodeJam mini-editions areas on the show floor – in the Build zone – with laptops available on a first come, first serve basis. For an overview of the sessions available in Las Vegas, click here.
Apple Showcase: new this year, located in the Build zone, is what we call the Apple Showcase. In this area, you’ll learn about the kinds of native enterprise apps that you can build with the iOS platform, get some information about the SAP HANA Cloud Platform SDK for iOS, learn more about app design and SAP Fiori for iOS, and find out how you can start training now. Make sure to stop by and talk to the experts anytime during show floor hours.
Check out this year’s Developer Hero banners which will be located throughout the show floor and hall areas. These developers are constantly sharing their knowledge, bringing devs and experts together, building innovative apps, mentoring future coders, etc. They inspire us because of everything that they do for the developer community. Connect with them if you see them around or follow them in Twitter.
We hope you have a great experience at SAP TechEd 2016 and look forward to seeing you there!
