Why should you submit? Quote from Stephen Johannes, previous speaker:

“You don’t need to present on “newest stuff” to get accepted….It is also a great way for you to deepen your own personal understanding of a particular topic. Even though you may think you know a topic very well, it is amazing how building the presentations will force you to pick up every single detail as part of you research. ” – Stephen Johannes

    Thanks for posting this, Tammy! I’m a bit confused by the track list though. Where does ABAP belong there? Unless the session is specifically about just one of those aspects (e.g. UI or integration), it doesn’t seem to really fit any of the tracks…

    Thank you!

        Thanks, Tammy! But that falls exactly under “one aspect” clause I’ve mentioned (Cloud in this case). For example, in the past there were sessions (even by SAP) about new things in a recent ABAP release. As a potential attendee, I’m at loss on where I’d look for these. Or last year’s sessions about abapGit and Unit Test are rather “general ABAP” category. How would they fit?

        Thank you!

          Jelena Perfiljeva – message from SAP: “ABAP belongs to the Cloud Native Architectures topic.”

          Based on SAP’s request, I have added theme/sub themes as an “addendum” towards the end of the blog.
