Earlier today, we hosted an SAP CodeJam at the KMD offices for the seventh time. I was even more excited than usual about this one, because the topic was one I am particularly keen on: The SAP Cloud Application Programming Model (or just CAP for short). The CodeJam was run by the always great Max Streifeneder of the SAP Developer Relations team.
Here’s Max, introducing the CodeJam format.
I was really happy to see a great turnout at the event. In my book, CAP is one of the most important topics at the moment for SAP developers, technologists and architects, and today’s CodeJam was an excellent opportunity to take the tech for a spin. The participants made a smart decision to spend a day learning about CAP!
CodeJams in three words.
During the CodeJam, Max took us through ten exercises, starting with getting a minimal project set up on our laptops, and ending with deploying a finished solution to SAP Cloud Platform’s Cloud Foundry environment.
CodeJam participants hacking away.
As you can probably tell, I’m a big fan of SAP CodeJams; they’re great learning opportunities and a lot of fun, and today was definitely no exception. If you have yet to participate in one, I highly recommend it. And if you haven’t gotten your feet wet with CAP yet, I urge you to do so.
A huge thank you to Max, Ian and Helena at SAP for a great CodeJam, to all the participants who came out, and to KMD for hosting.
P.S. The title’s alliteration is dedicated to wordsmith and CAP luminary DJ Adams.
