Dear community, some time ago I saw a competition on StackExchange. It was about developing a scalable Christmas tree. Everyone was allowed to use the programming language he wanted. The competition is already 5 years old, but I like the results and the basic idea. So here’s a Christmas tree in ABAP (source code on GitHub via abapGit). Hope you like plain ASCII art 🙂
By the way if there is some time left during christmas time, here are a few suggestions.
Visit TechnologyRadar from ThoughtWorks. A lot of interesting things to read about and a good source for further research (e.g. Chaos Katas).
To start a little discussion, have a look at TIOBE Index. COBOL and Fortran are ahead of ABAP? That reminds me of the story of the COBOL COWBOYS 😉
For those with a heart for computer games, check the Demo of Forge. It’s a sequel to Loom and made by a fan project. I think the magic within the game fits a little bit to the Christmas time.
And if it should be something with ABAP, then maybe take a look at the open source projects available with abapGit.
I wish you a nice Christmas time
Thumbs up for the Loom reference. Good ol' times those were.
Really true. I quite often surprised what other programmers do in their free time. They really make many people happy 🙂
Thanks. It's very cool. 🙂
BTW what happened to the snowman? 🙂
Bad elves ... 😉 These are the surprises when looking in the source code.
I fail to install the repo. I get this dump. I think it’s most likely due to the missing abapgit.xml file.
I submitted a pull request 😉
Fixed with your help 😉 Many thanks.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow... ♪♫ 🙂
Maybe it's time to bring moria.exe to #abapGit... 😉
CPP sources are already there: https://github.com/dungeons-of-moria/umoria
It's not easy to write games in ABAP but moria should work 😉
Your christmas tree reminds me to send a xmas update to my customers:
It's always a question of how to show bad news. A pony is far better than a nuclear explosion ... 😉
