The day has arrived… the SAP Cloud Platform SDK for iOS is GA today!
Here we are on March 30 and finally you will be able to get your hands on the SAP Cloud Platform SDK for iOS, when it is available of the SAP Marketplace & download links from the Developer Landing page.
The SAP Cloud Platform SDK for iOS enables you to quickly develop your own native enterprise apps, built with Swift, Apple’s modern programming language. Along with SAP Fiori for iOS, which includes reusable design components, you can build beautiful intuitive native applications. If you are unaware of SAP Fiori for iOS, check it out at https://experience.sap.com/fiori-design-ios/
I am sure that you still have questions, so let me try to answer a few for you…
Your best place as a developer, is as always, is to check out developers.sap.com. Later today you will find the new Developer Landing page for the SAP Cloud Platform SDK for iOS developers.sap.com/ios-sdk. This is the place that will help to guide you through your first few steps including…
- Where to download the SDK?
- How to get an SAP Cloud Platform Trial?
- Where to get the SAP Fiori for iOS Mentor App?
- How to get started?
All of these will be addressed with our step by step Tutorials. The tutorials will expose you to the SAP Cloud Platform SDK for iOS Assistant App on MacOS, which is part of the SDK install, the SAP Fiori for iOS Mentor App on iPad, which is available through the Apple App Store, as well as the features of the SDK & SAP Fiori for iOS. Today we also have the SAP Project Companion for Managers & Consultants app become GA. This is one of the first iOS applications built by SAP with the SAP Cloud Platform SDK for iOS.
Our tutorials start with an introduction to Swift & Xcode, for those of you that are just starting out. We then take you into the basic setup of the SAP Cloud Platform, enabling the Mobile Services and creating and configuring application definitions and back-end connections. To build upon that the tutorials cover the SDK foundation, offline Data Security and Fiori for IOS. If you wish to go to the tutorials directly…
For those of you that want more, I can suggest you check out the SAP Academy for iOS and register for classroom training at www.sap.com/ios-academy
In the next few weeks I will also be posting a number of SAP CodeTalks, where I will interview some of the Engineers on key subjects with regard to this launch. The initial Overview, goals, purpose of SDK CodeTalks with Andreas Schlosser is already available and we also have a video taking you through a demo scenario. Both of these are linked in the Resources section under Videos.
I’m so excited that finally you have the SDK and I’m really looking forward to seeing what you, will create with it
