SAP CodeJam Kosice, November 2016

Date: 14th of November 2016

Location: GES Club, Kosice, Slovakia

The theme: SAPUI5 and the HANA Cloud Platform Web IDE service

Some local history: (source Wikipedia)

Košice (Slovak pronunciation: [ˈkoʃitse]) is the biggest city in eastern Slovakia. It is situated on the river Hornád at the eastern reaches of the Slovak Ore Mountains, near the border with Hungary.

With a population of approximately 240,000, Košice is the second largest city in Slovakia after the capital Bratislava.

Being the economic and cultural center of eastern Slovakia, Košice is the seat of the Košice Region and Košice Self-governing Region, the Slovak Constitutional Court, three universities, various dioceses, and many museums, galleries, and theaters.

The city has a well-preserved historical center, which is the largest among Slovak towns. There are many heritage protected buildings in Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, and “Art Nouveau” styles with Slovakia’s largest church: the St. Elisabeth Cathedral.

Our host: T-Systems Slovakia

T-Systems is the business customer brand of Deutsche Telekom. Deutsche Telekom offers corporate and business customers integrated solutions for the networked future of business and society.

It operates information and communication technology systems for multinational corporations and public sector institutions drawing on a global infrastructure of data centers and networks.

With offices in over 20 countries and global delivery capability, T-Systems provides support to companies in all industries. T-Systems Slovakia has almost 4.000 employees.

T-Systems Slovakia is actively interested in the development of the local community. Therefore we’d like our city to host the event focused on developer community where people can explore technologies, share their knowledge, develop, network and have fun doing it.

The audience:

Half of the participants where from T-Systems and the other half from local SI’s and individuals. We had a good mix of UI5 newbies with only ABAP background, people with previous Web App development skills and really advanced guys who already made a POC and managed to deploy it as an Android app.

The goals:

During the CodeJam, we provided access to useful online information but also exercises and guidelines regarding the tools to use for building applications on the HANA Cloud Platform.
One key aspect of the sessions was to provide the audience with tips and tricks regarding the tools but also around common errors and ways to debug problems.

The networking:

As stated before, a CodeJam is not successful unless the attendees manage to build and deploy some apps also share their knowledge and experiences which was done perfectly during the breaks, the lunch and the after party as you will see on the pictures.

Moreover, many of the attendees were looking forward to next event which should take place next year around the April-May time frame.
