You likely already heard about SAP Web IDE (formerly SAP River Rapid Development Environment)  and how it helps you accelerate development of HTML5/UI5 applications and facilitate extension & customization of SAP Fiori apps?

The SAP HANA Academy produce hands-on video tutorials - and we’ve got SAP Web IDE fully covered with over 2 hours of content!

Here's the main playlist: SAP Web IDE

Tutorials range from getting started & connecting to back-end systems - to creating UI5 mobile apps - to extending SAP Fiori apps like HCM Timesheet Approvals & Sales Order Tracking. Also covered are different ways to run apps from SAP Web IDE including offline access via the "mock data" capability, and how to build and deploy apps in conjunction with SAP HANA Cloud Platform.
