There are discoveries to be made in the SAP Samples organization on GitHub.com. The site is full of useful snippets and scripts, tools and utilities, sample applications, as well as resources that support developer tutorials, virtual events, and even academic publications.
SAP Samples Org on GitHub.com
The wealth of goods here is surprising. Until I took over the publication pipeline for this channel, I was hardly aware of the variety of topics covered or the versatility of resources – some quickly solve a common customer issue, while others methodically demonstrate and educate a user on the benefit of some particular software feature. It’s personally rewarding to reveal the nuggets of wisdom that are bundled into GitHub repositories; they could be the missing link that helps you finish a project, or a golden learning opportunity that inspires you to start your next one.
Here's where to find the goods
There's a gallery of popular samples in the community, and some repositories surface on context-appropriate community and developer topic pages. To further help promote their discovery, I've compiled a list of recently published samples for community members to look through in hopes that others will find a gem.
Following is the list of sample repositories published in the first three months of this year, along with the main contributors behind them (if I missed anyone, let me know in the comments). We have extensibility options for SAP Ariba, showcases on SAP BTP, how to develop on the SAP Launchpad service, and much more.
Don't forget: Follow tags in your areas of interest and you’ll learn of new repositories in your activity stream.
Introducing SAP Samples Spotlight
We’ve started a series of videos to highlight some of the most popular and useful projects in the SAP Samples org. In these short segments, dj.adams walks through the inner workings of a repository with its creator.
In episode 1, ajmaradiaga, an integration developer with the SAP Ariba Procurement Delivery Center, talks about the aforementioned ariba-extensibility-samples repo.
In episode 2 we speak to christian.georgi, a product owner for SAP Cloud Application Programming Model, about the cloud-cap-samples repo.
