Featured Contributors Blog Series XII – SAP Extension Suite
This blog post is a part of the Featured Contributors Blog Series where we highlight different SAP topics and SAP community members who were significantly active in them.
What is SAP Extension suite?
SAP Extension Suite, powering SAP Business Technology Platform, is the best path to rapidly build and enhance enterprise applications, processes, and experiences.

It enables you to:
- Extend the value of business applications, while staying flexible and agile

Who are the Featured Contributors?
If you look at the right side at the bottom of the SAP Extension Suite topic page, you’ll find a section called “Featured Contributors”.
These are community members who were significantly engaged in the SAP Extension Suite topic in the SAP Community. They answered open questions, wrote blog posts and in general have the community spirit in them.
That is why I would like to show our gratitude by highlighting the current Featured Contributors:
We review the list of Featured Contributors on the topic page on a bi-weekly basis, and update if needed. This means that you too could be a Featured Contributor.
The SAP Community is full of opportunities to engage, interact, support, and meet fellow community members. To begin the journey we recommend that you find the tags of your interest in our SAP managed tags list and follow them. Once you start following a tag, you will be notified on new questions and blog posts being published and when other engagement activities take place.
Then you can decide when you would like to engage by accepting answers, commenting, liking, following, or voting on questions and even submitting new blog posts.
Do you want a new and cool community badge?
As Thomas Jung shared in his post, the Devtoberfest is back this year.
Wondering what is the Devtoberfest? Here is how Tom explains it:
“Devtoberfest is an attempt to capture the experience of the pre-conference events, like SAP InnoJam of years’ past. It’s an event which kicks off the SAP TechEd season. Devtoberfest takes some of the best aspects of the traditional hackathon type event, such as learning by building something, but opens up the experience to the entire community and spreads across multiple weeks to better accommodate everyone’s busy schedules. It’s an event that is also designed for you to be able to participate asynchronous and on your own time schedule. As the idea formed we’ve seen an opportunity here to really build something that is truly a festival for developers.”
As a part of the Devtoberfest activities you will be able to gain different Devtoberfest badges:

In order to win your first Devtoberfest badge, all you need to do is to register for the event via Eventbrite.
