15 years of work with SAP displayed in education

I am close to my 15-years of SAP-stuff anniversary (and I have about 30 years(!!) still ahead of me, if I look at current regular retirement rules), so I thought I might take a quick look back.

And I’m doing this through may list of (some) SAP education I got throughout the years.

Here it is:

2019 SAP Partner Workshop Fiori End2End
2018 WDEHCP (= CP100 for Partners) SAP Cloud Platform Developer Bootcamps
2018 SAP Cloud Platform & User Experience Workshop
2017 SAP S/4HANA Code Jam Training for Developers
2016 CodeJam Neckarsulm – ABAP for S/4HANA with Fiori
2016 CodeJam Aachen – SAP UI5
2016 SAP Discovery Workshop – SAP HANA Cloud Platform
2016 WDE360 – Developing UIs using HTML5 und SAP UI5
2016 GW100 – SAP Netweaver Gateway
2012 SCM660 – Handling Unit Management
2012 SCM631 – Additional Topics in Warehouse Management
2012 SCM611 – Transport
2011 EWM110 – SAP EWM Customizing I
2011 EWM100 – Prozesse in SAP Extended Warehouse Management
2010 SCM610 – SCM610 – Delivery Processing in SAP ERP
2009 SCM630 – SCM630 – Warehouse Management
2009 BC480 – PDF-Based Print Forms (Interactive Forms)
2009 BC416 – ABAP Web Services
2008 BC490 – ABAP Performance Tuning (Inhouse by SAP)
2008 BC402 – Advanced ABAP
2007 RABAP1 – Enhancement- and Switch Framework (Inhouse by SAP)
2006 TAW 12 – ABAP Workbench Concepts
2006 TAW 10 – ABAP Workbench Fundamentals

I think those few lines already give a nice overview on what topics and focuses I had through my professional live until now.

Also, it’s interesting to see that in the first few years, it was all “standard” SAP Education courses. Later then, things went quicker, new topics emerged and changed faster, so it was more partner specific offerings and also new concepts like Code Jams.

How would your SAP career be displayed by your education?

Best
Joachim

      haha, nice list. Never thought that way about.

      Just one question left. What do we use afterwards and does an official training (SAP or community-driven) give you an advance.

      I think it's a kind of mindset thing. Stay hungry and share your knowledge with others helped me my whole career (not only with SAP)

      Not only because I have learned how to present stuff to people.. it's more the feedback I get and the questions like "why do you do it that way".

      This questions gave me a view from another perspective and let me think about my own way how to handle stuff.

       

      So, the official courses are a nice to have bonus to put to your cv / personal resume. But the daily doing and sharing the knowledge gives you the superpower to stay always up to date 🙂

      Observation: I have some notifications for having received new comments on this blog. But when I check, there are non (except for the one from Florian, of course).

      I guess that's because they where spam and got deleted?! Interesting, I never saw that before - I guess the Careers-tag somehow draws this spam?

      Hi, Joachim:

      Yes, you guessed it. It's not the tag though. Certain words tend to draw it. I'm hesitant to type them here because then my comment might attract spam, too. But if you want more details, feel free to DM me. I've taken on a new role with SAP Community -- Moderation Lead -- so I'm just doing my part to keep awesome contributions such as yours free from the clutter. 🙂

      Hello Joachim,

      a great list and imho, a proof that SAP continue to invest in education of not only about the latest features of their licensed products but also about wider topics around computing. a big part of TechEd, especially when it was an in-person event was the opportunity to hop from one 'class' to another and simply ingest all the great content, hands-on, etc.

      with that in mind most of continuing education efforts on my part even though my horizon is definitely less than 30 years from now is to peek into open.sap.com and openhpi.de from time to time. they both offer dashboards that are a kind of a transcripts:

      open.sap.com/dashboard/documents &

      open.hpi.de/dashboard/documents.

      the added benefit is a direct authentication link to the class in the form of a public key or address:

      open.sap.com/verify/ &

      open.hpi.de/verify/

      e.g.

      xumec-behuf-hucaz-dipuh-sukim

      ximin-habig-balyd-pimel-rogof

      xerop-lacig-huvup-demed-kisec

      xinog-saped-nuvec-gycul-lydep

      i let those who want to dig deeper to reconstruct the relevant URLs (actually, they are quite trivial), but in many cases the 'class notes' or discussions contribute greatly to the actual learning content.

      at this point in my career, i'm not really too hung up on the scores but rather on refreshing what i have already knew or more importantly what i thought i had known but actually did not.

      Cheers and happy learning,

      greg

      P.S. recently discovered archive.org as a repository of learning but i must warn everyone that this content is already 3 years old: archive.org/details/MIT15.S12F18 (Blockchain and Money, Fall 2018)
