End of last month another CodeJam took place. The famous:
This time it was all about mobile. Host of this event was Swiss Post who invited the Swiss SAP roundtable members – and of course all the other mobile developers to the Swiss PostFinance headquarter in Bern.
Sami Lechner and I started the session with a quick update on the current mobile offering of SAP. We did talk about the fit of “Mobile” into the service family of SAP Cloud Platform and that mobile is nowadays much more than just a MADP offering and explained the individual features you can expect from our mobile services on SAP Cloud Platform:
After discussing how to consume all these features with our offering – and here’s a quick recap – we showed a demo of our all new SAP Enterprise App Modeler!
And here you can see Sami Lechner in action doing so (you see how serious we take this):
The setting in the room reminded me on days back in school, but we did the best to make the interaction that day less teaching more fun.
it took a bit longer to demo all our new cool stuff – like SAP Content to Go. But, I think we did a good job there.
A CodeJam would not be a CodeJam if coding is not involved. So we started the fun part and pointed our pupils….sorry participants …. to the Mobile Interactive Tutorial.
While we were experiencing the easiness of mobile app development a lot of parallel discussions did happen.
One quote that really was an eye opener to me was a developer saying: “Six month back I had all the tools I need locally – today I hate everything that is not in the cloud” – moving mobile app development toolchains into the cloud is actually something we are currently working on as theme. And SAP Enterprise App Modeler – which editor is based on SAP Web IDE is definitely just a starting exercise.
Anyhow, after a lot of networking and discussions even coding needs to pause for a while and the physical human needs thrive to attention: dinner was served:
Of course we also enjoyed some healthy food:
Last, but not least I want to thank our host Swiss Post for the wonderful event and location, the great hospitality and also a big thanks to the participants for their interest and engagement.
It was really great to spent a day with you.
See you next time.
