Call for speakers – SAP Inside Track OSLO – 17 August 2019
Hear ye, hear ye!
Earlier this year, we announced the first SAP Inside Track in Norway since 2014, will take place on Saturday August 17th 2019. Soon thereafter we announced our first confirmed speaker, the distinguished DJ Adams! This is your chance to be a part of a great line-up, and contribute to the mission to ignite a spark of inspiration, and create a living technical SAP community in Oslo and Norway. On Sunday March 3rd, we announced the call for speakers, and we invite everyone with something to share, to submit a proposal.
The theme of the event is how we can make use of SAPs “technology of tomorrow” today. It’s a myth that you should wait until S/4HANA arrives, before you start experimenting with SAP Fiori, or services and infrastructure on SAP Cloud Platform. We reject that sentiment and celebrate all the cool stuff you can do, to create value for your clients today, no matter where they are on their journey.
Session suggestions, in no particular order:
- ABAP Programming Model for SAP Fiori
- SAP Fiori – SAPUI5 freestyle & Fiori Elements
- SAP Screen Personas
- Design thinking for developers and functional consultants
- Setup and customising Fiori Launchpad
- Working with APIs
- RESTful and stateless vs stateful applications
- SAP Cloud Platform
- Cloud Foundry
- SCP Application Programming Model
- SAP Cloud Platform ABAP environment
- Micro-service architecture
- Using SCP to add value and innovation to SAP ECC Business Suite
- SCP FaaS
- Using Git for source control managment
- Using abapGit and TMS, for the best of both worlds
- Automated testing
- CI / CD
- Something different?
We have to stop seeing only fences and walls! If you look up to the clear sky, you might find something among the clouds.

Nice. 🙂 You might want to mention that the event will occur on August 19th.
I've never been to Norway but once at SAPPHIRE I was sitting next to some dashing fellow who had cuff links in shape of a train. Of course I just had to find out what was the story behind this: these days it's rare to see anyone wearing cuff links, much less train-shaped ones. Turned out the guy was from some kind of Norwegian railroad company. Had a nice conversation with him, waiting for Hasso Plattner to show up for a keynote. Cool dude (the Norwegian one 🙂 ).
And I also love, love, love Norwegian forest cat breed. So, now you know I've lived in the US long enough because it's an American tradition to do things like "Hm, I've never been to Latvia but I know someone from.... eh... Bulgaria? Is it close?" 🙂 We just can't resist the need to be connected.
Anyways, for a moment thought I'd grace the event with my presence and maybe check out cool cats while I'm there but looked up the prices and - yikes. Summer travel is expensive.
It's a good point that you don't have to wait till S4, or even Fiori for that matter. I'm amazed daily how many simple things are missed by ABAPers that can make the user life simpler and have been available for over a decade.
Good luck with the event!
Thank you Jelena, for that extensive comment. I don't think I can change the title without breaking external linking, so I don't dare to touch it, but I've added the info in the body.
By the way, I can relate to that need to be connected part, as it's just as present in Norway, as it seems you experience in the US. Perhaps because we are so few? With my background from the army, I often get; "Ooooh, you served there? Do you know Ole from <random place in Norway>? I think he might have been in the army too, some time ago." Like it was Ole, Lars, a couple of others, and me, defending Norway by ourselves. ?
Thank you for your support of the event. I leave you with an image of a Norwegian Forest Cat I found on Google, hoping it can lure you to reconsider a trip to Norway. ☺️
Wait, what? There are more than 3 people in Norwegian Army? I learned something today! 🙂
P.S. That's one fine cat!
