NOMINATIONS for Developer Hero 2018 are CLOSED!
Last year across the SAP TechEd events, we celebrated Developer Heroes from our Developer Community with banner signs around the event. As we are now on the run up to our SAP TechEd 2018 events, we are on the lookout for this year’s 20!
A Developer Hero is someone who has achieved one or more of the following…
- Must be knowledgeable about one or more areas of SAP
- Has created a showcase/dev work or is doing something innovative
- Blogs on SCN or other media
- Helps the developer community
So if you have someone in mind, please add your nomination to the ‘comments’ below with the reason why. If somebody has already nominated your choice, please ‘like’ their comment, rather than adding another, unless you are doing it for a totally different reason. Please note that no self nominations, no SAP employees can be nominated & no nominations that have previously been a Developer Hero (check d-men, days of future past) are eligible.
Remember you can nominate more than one Developer Hero for consideration!
Nominations were closed on July 31, 2018.
Our final 20 will be revealed for the first time at SAP TechEd in Las Vegas. So, what are you waiting for? Start posting your nominations below now.
NOTE – SAP Employees can nominate individuals, but cannot be nominated for Developer Hero
Well, I guess that Paul Hardy would be a good nomination.
However, I'm not sure if I should categorize him as a developer or as an author 🙂
Yes, definitely the passionate genius in all new ABAP: Paul Hardy is my personal ABAP Hero President!!
(And I do have 30+ years ABAP experience to say that)
(He presented recently to one of my developer communities at customer site and went to SITHH straight after, no sleeping! )
His category is #PAULHARDY, and if you see his programs and coaching, you are amazed.
Another worthy candidate might be Sébastien HERMANN for his contribution of some interesting open source projects/tools.
Definitely Sébastien Hermann would be a excellent candidate for his contribution to the community!
I would like to mention Fabian Lehmann for his contribution of some interesting POCs.
+1 here -- though like many others i wanted to nominate, he was a dev hero some years ago
+1 for Fabian Lehman for his valuable contributions / usage of SAP Cloud Pkatform IoT Services.
+ 1 for Fabian Lehmann for his contribution to SAP Community. I am always amazed with the ideas/PoCs which he shares using some of the latest #sapcp technologies. Lot of hard work and willingness to share with the community as blogs. definitely deserves to be a developer hero.
+1 for Fabian Lehmann
I would like to nominate DJ Adams for always sharing so much with the society specially #MondayWebinar and #Workflow
Gosh, thanks Nabheet, that's very kind. Unfortunately this nomination isn't allowed, as I'm a past Developer Hero (from 2015) and I'm also now an SAP employee 🙂 But thank you anyway!
My bad luck i missed the guidelines , but i believe this is the right title for you?
A hero for me is someone who himself is participating, appreciating and encouraging the community, I see the same in Phil Cooley
Wow Nabheet Madan thanks for the nomination, appreciate it muchly! I definitely want and try to encourage community activity as much as I can to "Make the SAP Community great again!! :-). Thank you very much!
How can i forget someone with whom i link #SAP Screen Personas Douglas
Douglas is doing a good job sharing the Screen Personas message in SAP Community. I will support him too. FM
Hi Nabheet Madan Marssel and Fausto Motter, thank you very much for your kind words. It is good to see that it is becoming visible because I really believe in the usefulness of the message I've working to share with the Community.
Best regards, Douglas
I would like to nominate Nabheet Madan - his Fiori debugging blogs (and other blogs of course) as well as the posts on twitter etc are all about revitalising the SAP Community. Nabheet is a constant contributor and is one of my developer heroes!
I'd like to nominate Serban Petrescu for his high-quality contributions via blogs, demos, free code on his github page, and engaging presentations at community evetns!
Absolutely agree! Serban Petrescu has posted a lot of great content in various areas
Another developer I'd like to nominate is Tomasz Wilk who has been developing cool and advanced demos with SAP Cloud Platform, SAP HANA Express, SAPUI5, and which he presented at local community events, but as well at UI5con (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmqUB3bOdGs)
I'm cooperating with Tomasz and I see his experience and knowledge of the newest technologies of SAP World. Honestly said, I think that there aren't so much people in Europe with productive experience with Draft Concept, XSA and so on. Furthermore, he is sharing his knowledge with local (and not only local) communities.
Fabio Pagoti is always a good nomination as Developer Hero, he has my vote as he helps me and everyone else everyday at work, and teaches at nights as well.
It seems he has already been elected last year
Fabio Pagoti has been doing a great job as a mentor. He is a great reference for me and I believe that for all developers who know his work.
I would like to nominate Amanda Protasio , Renan Correa , Ivan Mirisola , Douglas , Fausto Motter for the contribution in SAP Community.
Amanda Protasio for all speachs, presentations and classes that she gave about Build and UI5.
I would like to nominate:
Lars Hvam, for all his contributions to the ABAP developers, such as abapgit, abaplint among others;
Matthew Billingham, for all the support he provided us in the ABAP community, helping several times others to get the correct way to do the algorithms;
Damir Majer, for you work with ABAP Code Retreat events, code katas, etc;
Alvaro Tejada Galindo for you great work exploring several technologies and combine them with SAP technologies, besides being a great inspiration for me.
Thanks Raphael Pacheco -:) I'm glad you like my projects and it's a huge honor to be an inspiration for you -;)
And BTW...you should get awarded a "Developer Hero" award! You're always looking for innovation, always willing to try out new things and you have a very good "Developer" attitude -:D
I forgot to include in the previous post, Amanda Protasio and Raphael Pacheco for also collaborating for the growth of the SAP community in Brazil.
I'm too late, but here my thanks Matheus Brasil! Thank you for voting 😉
Nominating Vincent Weiss for his outstanding work and mentorship in SAPUI5, his in-depth knowledge of SAP Cloud Platform and expertise in mobile apps both hybrid and native.
For me, it is Nabheet Madan We started the journey with SAPUI5. He has been a mentor for workflows and he specially guided me into this wonderful learning path through twitter handles and blogs.
Also Thank you DJ Adams for being an inspiration.
You are my Developer Hero for almost a decade now.
@DJ it was your code that helped me understand RESTful Programming almost a decade ago and showed me a new world of possibilities for me to explore.
Gosh thank you Srikanth, it's not yet 6am but you've already made my day. All the best.
Thanks Srikanth, Lets keep learning and keep sharing both are important:)
I would like to nominate Christian Guenter for his big contribution to abapGit.
I would like to nominate May Stotzky for a huge contribution to our organization, she is leading innovation in many field (like S4HANA, Fiori, UI5, WebIDE, Eclipse, etc) and being an inspiration and a mentor for all of us the developers.
For me it is Tammy Powlas.
She Has so much knowledge around the BI and Lumira knowledge. Saved several times my timeline.
