Hopefully everyone is well aware that Devtoberfest has been taking place over the last 10 weeks. We’ve had multiple weeks of educational enablement content, community interviews, hands-on exercises, and then finally the Build Week.
Build week involved teams of community members like yourself coming together to work on open source projects all designed to give back to the SAP Developer Community.
If you need a quick refresher of Devtoberfest, Build Week, or any of the content included; you can also review the home for the event over on GitHub: https://github.com/sap-samples/sap-devtoberfest-2020 or on Developers.sap.com: https://developers.sap.com/devtoberfest.html.
