I, Garima Sardana along with Ashwani Goyal, from SAP CD UX APJ, Gurgaon, conducted ODATA Developer Training in Shanghai. This was planned for half day daily and spanned for 5 days from 20th-24th June’16.

The participation from Shanghai colleagues was in good numbers. Around 10 colleagues participated and their enthusiasm to learn was spot on!
