We now have an offering that targets all those developers out there that have an elementary knowledge of modern programming languages such as Java, C#, or Python and that would be interested to learn what ABAP is about, but that have so far refrained from doing so.

Acquire Core ABAP skills

As the name suggests the goal of the learning journey is about aquiring core skills for programming in ABAP Cloud in  SAP BTP ABAP Environment, SAP S/4HANA, ABAP Environment and in on premise systems as of SAP S/4HANA 2020.

  • Unit 1 - Unit 6 are about basic ABAP programming techniques

  • Unit 7 deals with how business objects that are based on the ABAP RESTful Programming Model can be called via the so called Entity Manipulation Language (EML) which is the new lingua france to call business objects.

  • Unit 8 finally walks you through building your own first business object using RAP.

Examples could be students that would like get a glimpse what ABAP is about or employees of companies that are using SAP but have not had the chance to get some ABAP knowledge.

Our brandnew SAP Learning Journey Acquire Core ABAP Skills offers 40 hours of free learning and lets you discover how to apply some of the fundamental programming techniques on SAP BTP, ABAP environment, and will be able to develop a simple, end-to-end RESTful ABAP app.

My colleagues from SAP training department have managed to create an introduction into (clean) ABAP that lets new developers concentrate on modern ABAP language without forcing them to learn language constructs that are not recommended to be used anymore in modern ABAP.

In addition they let them use the ABAP Development Tools in Eclipse rather than having to start with the SAPGUI based tooling which happens to be not that appealing to developers that are used to modern IDE's 😉.

But this course will also be of interest for those experienced ABAP developers that did not have a chance to work with modern ABAP language constructs so far that are available in SAP S/4HANA and SAP BTP ABAP Environment.
