SAP BTP Certifications

Video Tutorials

As advertised, the SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) brings together data and analytics, artificial intelligence, application development, automation, and integration in one, unified environment. The platform includes many different product and services bundled in distinct portfolios. For some of these services, one or more certifications are available.

In this article, we cover the SAP HANA Cloud Development Associate certification.

Topic Areas

Watching the series of 10 videos takes about 100 minutes covering the main topic areas but note the disclaimer on the page, always check at the source for any updates!

For the complete Learning journey (17 units, 12 hours according to the website, 18 hours according to my own calculation), visit the SAP Learning website. The content is provided at no charge.

In the video tutorial series, we cover these topics in less than 2 hours; not all material is covered. You can use the series as an introduction, a review, or a study opportunity when you are not behind a desktop computer but with a mobile device online. In this article, we have included the references to documentation and hands-on tutorials from the SAP Developer Center mentioned in the tutorials.

Over the years, for the SAP HANA Academy, SAP’s Partner Innovation Lab, and à titre personnel, I have written a little over 300 posts here for the SAP Community. Some articles only reached a few readers. Others attracted quite a few more. For your reading pleasure and convenience, here is a curated list of posts which somehow managed to pass the 10k-view milestone and, as sign of current interest, still tickle the counters each month.

      Hi Denys,

      Is C_HCDEV_01 replaced with C_HCDEV_03?

      Can't seem to find it anymore...

      Thanks,

      Tom.
