Hi everyone,

our new openSAP course Developing Java-Based Apps on SAP HANA Cloud Platform started three weeks ago, on Wednesday, September 7th 2016, and ends on Thursday, October 20th 2016. It’s a 5 week course followed by another week for the final exam. The document openSAP course guide – Developing Java-Based Apps on SAP HANA Cloud Platform – overview gives an overview over the course and has the links to all the week guides. This blog post you are reading just now will guide you through week 1 of the course and provide you with additional material, explanations or Q&A around the topic of the week. Depending on the feedback and questions inside the forum of the course I might also add additional material (e.g. videos) during and after the course to address the frequently asked questions so that you have a one-stop-shop of additional materials for this course. I hope you will enjoy the week!
