This year the educational content is structured with a different topic each day of the week.
🔵 Data and Analytics
🔴 Low and No Code Tooling
🟠Cloud Native Development
As you can see from this calendar view, we will repeat that same structure with new content for each topic in each week of Devtoberfest.
All the session content is listed directly in the special Community Events Devtoberfest area. You can see all the sessions in the calendar or list view and drill in and see the content details.
We have some fun sessions planned for you in Week 1.
Monday - ABAP
For the first week, the ABAP sessions will both be focused on getting started. A little refresher/intro to ABAP Object Oriented Patterns and Installing and Using ABAP Development Tools for Eclipse.
The Fun Friday Activities return this year and we are ending week one with one of the most popular activities from last year: Petoberfest! Post a picture of your pet, with your pet or of your pet coding.
