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!

 

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.

      + 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.

      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!

      A hero for me is someone who himself is participating, appreciating and encouraging the community, I see the same in Phil Cooley

      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.

      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.
