This blog post won’t save your life, but it will save some lines of code.
I start with a poem. Someone at the SAP Cloud Platform Twitter, (@sapcp) account said I was poetic once, so now I want to try and live up to that. One of my favorite bands, Metric, just released their 7th album today and they are rather poetic so I’m listening to the Art of Doubt LP while composing my prose. I will use different forms of poetry from time to time, but for this one, let’s go with a digital Blackout poem (too lazy to grab the paper and a marker).
I’m not sure which is better, but If you want to read the entire blog post without the Blackout, here you go.
What if I could tell you the most popular language for coding in 30 years? Would that interest you, or do you care more about what makes you happy than what’s the most popular? So then, what if, instead, I offered you a way to code that you may not be using? Everyone is different, but I hold in my heart an affinity for logic.
I love when people stay right, except to pass, on the expressway.
I squeeze my toothpaste from the end.
I don’t like my food to touch on the plate.
Ok, that last one may just be an issue for me.
You know what else I like? SDK’s. If you want to program in Java, go ahead, it’s more popular than Swift. That’s a fact at this time, not an opinion. If you want to program in Swift, and Java and other languages, I am fine with that, but don’t start from zero every time for every app. If you want to save yourself having to code things for a mobile device like:
- UI design
…then wouldn’t it be a more LOGICAL way to code by using a repeatable, approved and secure set of code instead of writing those lines on your own?
So that’s enough of the persuasive writing. Here are some links to the SAP Cloud Platform SDK’s for mobile app development and a few more technical blog post. Give them a look and try out some of the features I listed above in your mobile app. Here is some overview info:
/* SDK for iOS */
/* SDK for Android */
In my opinion, these SDK’s are awesome and logical, but I would love your feedback. Look for more great information on these SDK’s at SAP TechEd this year.
Hope to see you there.
