CodeJam for End-to-end SAPUI5 Application Development
Friday, June 3rd to Saturday, June 4th, Passau, Germany
Most of the people attending this CodeJam were already experienced ABAP developers, but were new to the concepts of OData; so we spent the first half day going through the origins and foundational principles of OData. Then after explaining the structure of ABAP classes used to define an OData service, people were comfortable enough with the coding side of things that we were able to go "off piste". Here, we looked at the inner workings of the OData classes and how you can construct and reuse your own.
The result was that the developers were able to construct custom OData services, ready for consumption in SAPUI5.
38 die-hard developers gave up their Saturday to learn about SAPUI5.

Culture shocks aside, by the end of the Saturday session, everyone had successfully created a working SAPUI5 application that consumed the OData service created the previous day.
Unfortunately, we ran out of time long before we ran out of content, but nonetheless, it was a great time of learning, discussion, networking and hacking.
