“SAP CodeJam” – This word is always electrifying among all the SAP folks irrespective of domains and LOBs which they work across. This time I with my colleague @ManjunathNagaraj had the opportunity to conduct the event on the 22nd of August @Noida, India on request from Fujitsu Consulting India for a group of 20+ people.
As all other codejam events this was also open to public and up for registration at www.eventbrite.com. To our surprise, the registration to the event got filled within 10 mins of the launch internally with Fujitsu colleagues. This left less opportunity for our other SAP partners to join us in our first CodeJam of 2017. Of course, I see this as a golden opportunity for us to do another CodeJam if any of you request again!
Before this I’ve been part of many CodeJams but more as a participant for varied topics. To our pleasure this CodeJam was my and Manju’s first time from many aspects! First CodeJam as mentors, first CodeJam of the year 2017 in the product “SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Services, first time travel out of Bangalore to deliver the CodeJam, first time met the Fujitsu Consulting India team!
We started with a short overview of SAP Cloud Platform & its service offerings as the participants were new to the product! Then we moved on to high level concepts of why, where, how, what of “SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Services”. The participants were happy to understand the new offerings made available in the mobile services with the SAP And Apple partnership! They were equally excited to try their hands on to the SAP Mobile SDK and the SAP CP Mobile Service for development and operations. We steered away from the regular scripts documented for CodeJam’s but put emphasis on content available for all as the SAP Interactive Tutorials in the developer community.
The participants did learn how to build mobile applications and how to work with the SAP CP Mobile Services cockpit, and other features of SAP CPms like enabling authentication, logging, online and offline services, infrastructure requirements etc..
Few moments captured in the session:
And of course, the yummy food and snacks that were arranged, kept us alert while coding… 🙂
A huge “Thank You” to the organizing team from Fujitsu, Anoop O Kumar, Saurabh, Deepak for a being the magnificent host and also provide a great on-site support. Special thanks to Jigneshkumar Patel from Fujitsu for creating this opportunity and lastly to @krishna.dalal and @paramita.biswas from SAP for supporting us to deliver this successfully!
Some of the comments and feedback received were –
“Perfect overview, was comfortable with the CodeJam event and was able to understand the Mobile Services End to End from Scratch. Would also prefer to learn more on Cloud Portal Services, Fiori Etc..”
“The CodeJam was more helpful than expected, will look forward to use it in my project”
