The 2021 Year-end SAP Sample Code Roundup
Code samples teach, inspire, instruct, and un-stuck developers as they think about solving problems, building new things, and fixing broken ones.
The SAP Samples organization on GitHub.com hosts sample applications, extensions and customized functionality, step-by-step how-to tutorials, and chunks of code that could save the day in implementation projects.
In 2021, we published 120 new sample code repositories. Although we’re well through the first month of 2022, as long as people are still greeting each other with “happy new year,” I figured it wasn’t too late for a year-end summary.
The year 2021 was the year of SAP Business Technology Platform, as evidenced by the number of code samples that supported application development, integration, database management, and “smart” technologies. The code samples channel was also again vitally important in supporting SAP TechEd, from providing the nuts and bolts for technical educational sessions, to literally making developers’ lives better with all that the keynote had to offer, and not least of all, creating tons of fun learning opportunities leading up to the main event with Devtoberfest. Check out the sample code repositories labeled “teched2021.”
It wasn’t all fun and games, though, as plenty of housekeeping was required to keep repos updated, or moved to the public SAP archive of samples and open source projects. Thanks to everyone who helped keep code lines tidy, licenses compliant, and README files web crawler-friendly and up to date with the SAP branding machine.
And thanks to the people who made these Q4 contributions!
Repositories Published Q4 2021
Shout Out to Spotlight Guests!
Lastly, special thanks to those who let DJ Adams and me shine a little extra light on their repositories (and faces) in the SAP Samples Spotlight series, which ran as a new playlist on the SAP Developers YouTube channel. We featured content from these contributors:
This was a fun, “dev-casual” way to let the repository owners/sample creators talk about their work. Check out the SAP Samples Spotlight recordings.
On to 2022
Throughout the last year I’ve shared the latest repositories published to the SAP Samples channel in GitHub in hopes of exposing the value they have to offer and to make the community aware of the extended footing that the GitHub channel provides.
See previous sample code round-ups from 2021:
- Quarterly Round-up of SAP Code Samples
- Quarterly Code Sample Roundup, Summer Edition
- Sample Code Repo Roundup, Third Edition
Now it’s time to hear from you: What types of samples would you like to see? On which specific topics? Need help any with extensions? What problems could these samples help solve?
Feel free to let us know.
