What's New? May 2019

Efforts to Accept More Answers

May 29, 2019

In support of recent member-driven initiatives -- and to help increase the number of questions with accepted answers -- the SAP Community team is introducing a new Q&A policy for upvotes.

We are currently developing a new feature that will automatically accept answers after 5+ number of net votes. And while we're waiting for that feature to roll out, we'll accept the answers manually. Once every 14 days, we’ll run a report that identifies answers with 5+ votes, and we’ll go through the process of accepting them ourselves.

By basing the correct answers on upvotes, we give our members the power to identify the best solutions to problems, while improving the SAP Community as a resource for useful information.

Grab Your Towel and Earn the Hitchhiker Badge

May 27, 2019

Saturday, May 25 was Towel Day -- the time of year when Douglas Adams fans show their love for the author and "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy."

To show our appreciation as well (and taking a cue from members' musing), we have launched the Hitchhiker mission.

To complete the mission and receive its corresponding badge, you need to earn 42 accepted answers (the same number that is the "Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything”).

You can learn more about the mission, the badge, and eligibility in this blog post.

ABAP Community Events

May 13, 2019


Our ABAP Community Events have evolved in recent years, and a new page provides information about these types of events, explains how to organize one, and links to lists of upcoming events.


Every ABAP Community Event format is structured to help attendees share knowledge, learn new SAP technologies together, and hone their skills. Lasting an entire day, ABAP Community Events don't include passive lectures. Instead, attendees actively take part in the coding experience, focusing on the fundamentals of software development, modern ABAP, and design.

ABAP Community Events include:

  • ABAP CodeRetreat: This free community-driven event allows participants to practice TDD, clean code, and refactoring using ABAP development tools (a.k.a. ABAP in Eclipse) for a whole day.
  • ABAPGit BunKai: This event is a deep dive into different topics, giving attendees the opportunity to practice Git foundations, branching, pull and push requests, collaboration with Git and best practices, using version control and related tools and frameworks to support continuous testing, continuous collaboration, and related topics for the entire day.
