JavaScript for ABAP Developers | SAP PRESS Book


JavaScript for ABAP Developers

I am thrilled to announce that the book I wrote on JavaScript, in partnership with SAP PRESS, is officially on sale now👨🏼‍💻📚!! It’s essentially a list of everything I wish I knew when I first started out with this incredibly powerful programming language as an ABAP dev. The best way to learn is by doing and this book was written as a purely practical guide to get you writing and executing useful JavaScript code right from chapter one.

If you’re looking to build front-end applications using technologies like SAPUI5 then you will need a good practical understanding of core JavaScript principles, which is what this book is all about. There is already a fantastic book on UI5 development SAPUI5, The Comprehensive Guide and as UI5 is a JavaScript framework it is crucial that you master JavaScript to get the most out of your UI5 applications.

In the book I cover a wide range of JavaScript topics including:

  • Variables
  • Operators and loops
  • Functions
  • External libraries like jQuery
  • The DOM
  • Classes
  • Old vs modern syntax
  • Error handling and debugging

It’s a great primer if you want to expand your skills into front-end development on top of your SAP/ABAP knowledge.

You can read the full blog post here and if you’re interested in purchasing my new book you can do so here.
Thanks for reading 🙂

      Thanks for sharing, Brandon!

      I'm not sure whether to attribute lack of comments here to everyone being out of town for vacation or to a weird bug that occasionally hides the "Add comment" button while inviting you to be "the first to comment".

      For those unfamiliar with your other work: this is Brandon of Code with Brandon YouTube fame, which is "finally, a good English speaking ABAP channel!" according to Reddit.

      So I hope y'all grab a copy of the book before it goes out of print. 🙂
