(and a personal recap)

Hi all,

as you may know, I like bullet-points to clarify my thoughts. Today I will give you ten reasons why you need to attend a SAP Inside Track and additional to that I want to give a personal recap of SAP Inside Track Munich.

So let us start with my recap. I arrived Munich at Friday evening.

Unfortunately I was too late (not registered) to attend the Codejam event on the topic SAPUI5 with SAP Web IDE. I’m pretty sure this was also a great event and I hope to read a summary of it from an attendee :smile:

The event took place at and started at Saturday at 9 o’clock in the morning. Luckily my place wasn’t that far away and I needn’t to worry about the parking situation in Munich.

The day started with the session from hendrik.neumann, which wanted to share with us some ABAP-Topic *** errm, Mazes. Yes, your right, mazes are awesome. I didn’t know anything about building mazes until yesterday. Right now I’m really curious about reading his book recommendation Mazes for Programmers.

Second session brought to us by christian.lechner was all about HANA and the under presented Text-analysis-engine which is part of the package. This was really a great example what all is possible and how HANA generates new possibilities for the business. The example with some good old Bavarian words was also great.

Third session was all about XSS. This was a session I thought is interesting, but not that hot. I was soooo wrong!!! The topic itself is Eingebetteter Bild-Linkaround of us every day and in my opinion we developers should care a lot more on it than we do. Not because there are hackers out there (by the way little live hacking was nice to see), because we are transforming ourselves at the moment and all the new possibilities like Fiori, gateway and things like that brings this topic also in our focus. Our small ecosystem behind the firewall isn’t that secure and that is one of the major points I recognized for myself from the session soumyasanto.sen had prepared for us.

Afterwards vassilena.mladenova had her topic about S4-Financial (formerly SFIN) and shared some new insights. As this is a very common topic I liked the new insights into the data model and the discussion about the no disruptive journey to implement it. Maybe it is a little disruptive journey if you are not a brand new customer.

Lunch break now and a state-of-the-art-food were delivered by the team. Pizza, unfortunately there was no lactose-free cheese on it, so I had a pizza bread made just for me. Thank you for this!

Now the “Marketplace” session took place, and I attended at the Test Gap Analysis: Risk-based Testing of ABAP Applications presented by Andreas Göb and Elmar Juergens.

This was really a surprising topic as announced. Their software does help you to improve your quality testing with a heat map. In my opinion there is a white gap this software could fill and from a technical perspective I really like the idea behind it. It was also nice to see, that a lot of the hanging around attendees asked questions on how it works and how to use it.

The other marketplace-sessions I missed, because of connecting with old friends and new to talk about this and that. Anyway, I need to watch the recording of gregor.wolftopic: IoT with the HANA Cloud Platform (HCP)

These topics were also presented and maybe someone can share a little bit about it:

Introduction to Functional Programming

Introduction to the basic concepts of functional programming (FP) and why you should care about it.
