So, we're coming already to the end of week one of Devtoberfest. It's started, the month-long celebration, annual celebration of what makes us developers. It's a LearnFest, great sessions, even better participation from you lot. So, yeah, we've got three more weeks to go. Some of the great sessions this week I just want to highlight. We had Martin Stensig on Monday telling us how we can, showing us how we can make SAP extensibility a reality with SAP Cloud Application Programming Model, all in 60 minutes. We had Vanessa Micheli-Schmidt show us how to get started with low-code and no-code development. We've had some great sessions on the topic of integration, on graph, on event management, and event driven architecture, and also API management. Actually, this is a low tree. We've also had Klaus-Peter Zauer show us all about SAP Datasphere. And last but certainly not least, on Friday, one of the highlights for me was the inimitable Volker Busek with lots of new features for WDI5. It's not too late to get started with Devtoberfest and start earning points. So, head on over to Tom Jung's blog post to find out how. See you on the SAP community. In this segment I'm going to call You May Have Missed. In April of this year, you may have missed a great blog post from Alper de Dalhieu. Alper documents his journey along with Martin Frick on comparing how to develop an application on SAP BTP Cloud Foundry Runtime and SAP BTP Kyma Runtime. After explaining at a high level what the Kyma and Cloud Foundry runtimes are, Alper then shows us how to containerize an application and integrate it with the involved frameworks. In the next sections, you'll dive into service management and consumption, extensibility, service mesh, multi-tenancy, there's so much more as well. So please, if you're looking to brush up on the differences between these two runtimes, if you just want to experiment and build an application and practice your skills with both runtimes, please give this blog post and all the associated content a really good look. Let us know in the comments any questions you have or feedback on what your experience was like. Hi everyone. We developers know how important it is to maintain clean code to achieve the best possible results from our software developments. You might have already seen the previous blog post by Olga, how to enable clean code checks for ABAP focusing on Code Pal. In her recent blog post, she explains that now there is a free and open source version of Code Pal for ABAP Cloud sets, which is of course cloud enabled, hence can be executed in SAP BTP ABAP environment and is also remote enabled. Additionally, it provides quick fixes to automate and thus speed up the adaptation to clean ABAP. In this blog post, she points out some of the technical prerequisites, the detailed steps to install Code Pal for ABAP cloud checks via ABAP Git, how to execute Code Pal for ABAP Cloud checks, as well as how to use quick fixes in an automated way. So check out this blog post for more information and start implementing clean code in your ABAP Cloud developments. Thank you. Are you curious about the path to unleashing your developer potential?

These are all described very nicely in Birgit Selvac's blog post. For example, the software as a service application subscription processes have been improved. And one of the improvements is basically automatic creation and mapping of routes. In another innovation, we have SAP Business One as a new system that's now available in the Service Center, meaning you can discover and start to consume services from these systems in your DevSpaces. And last but not least, goodbye project page, hello storyboard page. This storyboard is now the start page for your DevSpaces, and it's great. Today it contains a graphical representation of all your applications.
