SAP Fiori development newsletter July 2023 (issue #23)

Sometimes, if developers don’t follow common design and technology standards, it can be like the Wild West. While standard tooling such as SAPUI5, SAP Fiori elements, and SAP Fiori tools can help, sometimes you need more. That’s why this issue includes an article on the “TypeScript Sheriff.” Similar to the endings of many old Western movies, we have some of our older products riding off into the sunset.

If you want to meet with fellow developers and the SAP engineers who build our professional development tools, I encourage you to join our monthly SAP Fiori elements and SAP Fiori tools roundtable group.

We publish the SAP Fiori development newsletter every other month to share new information with developers in the SAP ecosystem about SAPUI5, SAP Fiori elements, SAP Fiori tools, and SAP Business Application Studio.

To receive this content in your inbox, please subscribe to receive the SAP Fiori development newsletter.

Your editorial team,
Oliver GraeffRaz Korn, and Peter Spielvogel.
