HANA Express up and running at @iLabAfrica at Strathmore University in Nairobi

Meeting so many graduate and  under graduate of the faculty of Computer Science at the @iLabAfrica at the Strathmore University in Nairobi – Kenya – for the first SAP CodeJam there was a big pleasure for me on Friday 26th  May 2017.

Most of the participants were aware of HANA and the concept of In-Memory Data Base, but did not have the opportunity to have either a workshop nor demo on it. Therefore, it was a great opportunity for them to have hands on HANA Express Edition.

Jointly organized with SAP University Alliances Africa and the @iLabAfrica staff, the infrastructure was well organized and enough Desktops for participants without their own Laptops were available.

All the participants have  had the opportunity to discover and practice HANA. I demo, how to access HANA Express via AWS, Azure or by installing their one instance as well. Only very few could install their own instance as a Laptop with 8GB or 16 GB memory is not very common in this part of the world.

Below are some pictures of that memorable event at @ilabafrica at the Strathmore University in Nairobi.
