Answers come in many shapes and sizes
We like to provide answers here in the community. Answers come in many different forms, from responses to questions in Q&A, blog posts, and resources on community topic pages, to interacting with fellow members via comments, private messaging, and virtual events such as SAP Community Calls.
Beyond what you might find in the local search, answers abound in our extended community in places such as Developer Center and GitHub. The Developer Center is loaded with step-by-step tutorials that can help you understand very specific aspects of a product you’re working with, while the SAP Samples organization on GitHub has a growing number of repositories that likewise offer educational tidbits and solutions to problems.
Sample code repositories might help you understand features of an SAP product, solve a particular issue, or even suggest use cases or scenarios that would explain how to use the product in the first place :). As the person who manages the release of assets in this repository of repositories, I can tell that my colleagues are diligently working to answer questions related to SAP BTP that perhaps haven’t even been asked yet.
As you can see from the most recent additions below, they’re also sharing samples that demonstrate how to build apps with SAP Cloud Application Programming Model, fun things to do with SAP Analytics Cloud, and how to build extensions with other tools and services.
GitHub repositories continue to be an excellent delivery channel for educational materials, such as supporting apps/code/exercises for openSAP courses on SAP Fiori Elements and DevOps, content related to the recent UI5con event, and work that supports the publication of a security research paper.
The point is, answers come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and you might just find one in a “sample” repository.

We’ve also added two new episodes to the series that takes a closer look at some of the most popular sample code repositories by interviewing their main contributors. Actually DJ Adams does the interviewing, while I smile along pleasantly.
Check out the latest videos from our SAPdevs YouTube channel.
SAP Samples Spotlight, Episode 3: UI5 Service Worker
In this SAP Samples Spotlight hear from Tobias Sorn, author of the UI5 Service Worker, a repository that demonstrates how the Service Worker API could be used in a UI5 app to realize different caching strategies.
SAP Samples Spotlight Episode 4: Access SAP HANA Cloud Database Underneath SAP Data Warehouse Cloud
That’s a (quarterly) wrap
There are dozens and dozens of repositories that might hold answers for you if you didn’t find one here – visit the SAP Samples organization on GitHub for more.
