The SAP HANA Product Management team is inviting developers who are actively developing applications on SAP HANA to this free 1 day event, where we are interested to hear from you firsthand about your SAP HANA application development experiences, challenges, and what is working for you and what is not working for you.   If you’ve been spending your days banging away at the keyboard and building killer apps on SAP HANA, we want to talk to you.   We need to talk to the developers out there who have been neck deep in creating tables and views via CDS(Core Data Services), writing SQLScript stored procedures, and exposing services such as OData and server-side JavaScript.   We’d also like to talk to the developers who are creating applications leveraging some of the HANA specific features such as spatial, predictive, and text analysis. So if you have worked with any of these topics, please consider joining us in Newtown Square or Palo Alto for this free event.   The plan is to have a set of brief update presentations for each topic followed by a round of feedback sessions where you will be invited to sit down with the product manager responsible for that topic and let them know what your greatest successes have been, and what your worst pain-points are.   This is exclusive access to the product managers within SAP who can help you influence the direction of the product for the better. Don’t miss this opportunity.

This is an interactive event with a small number of experienced hands-on customer experts, networking together and providing direct and candid feedback to SAP. To this end the number of registrations will be limited, where all attendance request will be given careful consideration and we will contact you with a confirmation email to attend the event and the next steps.

We are running this event in two locations, register today for an invitation!  Please register for one location only.
