It’s time for Kyma week in Devtoberfest 2020!!!
Some of you may not know all the ins and outs of our Devtoberfest event leading up to SAP TechEd, but now it’s time for a topic I love to chat about, Kyma. Specifically how we can enable you to use the open source “project Kyma” and the SAP Cloud Platform, Kyma Runtime. So let’s dive deep on that now!
A quick recap of what Kyma is:
is a platform for extending applications with serverless functions and microservices. It provides a selection of cloud-native projects glued together to simplify the creation and management of extensions.
Another way I like to explain Kyma is that in the open source world there are lots of projects available to you for working with containerized applications and kubernetes orchestration. Kyma bundles together several useful projects into one easy to use interface that you can run on the infrastructure of your choice.
Our Kyma enablement content for next week is part of Devtoberfest Week 7: 05 Oct → 09 Oct 2020.
On the topic page you’ll find content to help you level up with the project “Kyma”. This content consists of exercises, videos of those exercises, and office hours sessions.
- project “Kyma”
- SAP Cloud Platform, Kyma runtime
- Thomas Hertz – Get a fully managed runtime based on Kyma and Kubernetes
All of the scheduled content described on that page (the premieres and the office hours session) is available in a public Google Calendar so that you can bring the events into your own calendar and get reminders for each of them. Alternatively, if you’re subscribed to the SAP Developers YouTube Channel you can get reminder notifications for individual live stream and premiere videos.
In addition to all the great content in next week’s enablement sessions I wanted to point out a few additional Kyma related items.
There is a great new blog post from Uwe Klinger that includes sample code for deploying CAP to Kyma.
And another item to put in your calendar is a new SAP HANA On Dev Dev episode from Thomas Jung next Tuesday October 6, 2020 that will feature CAP on Kyma.
My hope is that through the content of my SAP colleagues and through the enablement of Devtoberfest we can help you see what’s possible when coding with Kyma.
Can’t wait to see you all next week!
