User Experience (UX) sessions at SAP TechEd 2021

Once again, SAP TechEd is virtual in 2021 (November 16-18). This means more people can attend without incurring the time and expense associated with traveling to a physical event. As always, we will have sessions that discuss our innovations in user experience (UX) solutions. The schedule includes lectures, hands-on workshops, and a new, engaging format called Channel 1. UX sessions for 2021 will focus on SAP Fiori elements, SAP Fiori tools, implementing SAP Fiori in SAP S/4HANA, accessibility, mobile development, SAP Business Technology Platform, and AI.

Check back on this post as we get closer to SAP TechEd, as I will update the items below with links to their respective entries in the session catalog when that information becomes available.

SAP Fiori elements

Using the template-based approach in SAP Fiori elements makes building SAPUI5 apps faster and easier than ever. SAP Fiori tools improve developer efficiency and reduce the cost of maintaining your apps. In this lecture, we will show how you can benefit from using the same approach and tools we use to build apps for SAP S/4HANA.
