October is a very hectic and interesting month. It kicks off the start of the SAP TechEd season, reminds us that we only have two more months to wrap up things before the end of the year and it also brings us one more month closer to the holiday season. Despite all the various activities going on throughout the month, we were able to conduct five SAP CodeJams in five different cities and in four different countries. We are grateful to developers like you that we are able to conduct these events, so thank you!

Topic of the Month: SAPUI5

SAP CodeJam is designed to focus on a single topic, allowing participants to get familiar with one specific SAP platform or technology at a time. This month our events covered five different topics:

  • SAP HANA with IoT
  • SAP HANA Cloud Platform Integration
  • SAP HANA Cloud Platform
  • SAPUI5 with SAP Web IDE
  • SAP HANA with SAPUI5

Getting to Know the Expert: Denise Nepraunig

Denise Nepraunig has been working with the SAP Web IDE team since July, 2014 and has conducted three SAP CodeJams so far. Even before joining SAP, Denise was developing SAPUI5 applications at her previous jobs.

Denise likes being a SAP CodeJam expert because she likes to share her passion for a certain topic and meeting new like-minded people. “I enjoy the casual setup of those events, it feels like hanging out with a bunch of friends in your living room and hacking together some cool stuff. It is also great to be able to visit all those different locations and taste some local food. If you want to start out with a new technology you can feel overwhelmed by the amount of documentation, so I really appreciate to be able to help the people to find the needle in the haystack so that they can jumpstart the development.”

When asked to share some interesting facts or statements of SAPUI5, Denise shed some light about SAP Web IDE, which is a crucial part of SAPUI5 development.

“I really like all those templates which help you to kick start your app development and the tight integration with the HCP. The code completion is also quite good. What I enjoy most is that I don’t have to install anything on my local computer and that I have everywhere the same settings, projects and plugins – I just need a Chrome browser and I am good to go for development.”

Fun Fact: Denise has a black belt in Karate, which I must say is pretty awesome.

Not sure what SAP CodeJam is?

SAP CodeJam is a 5 to 6 hours event where a small group of developers get together for an afternoon of networking, learning, and coding in an ultra-casual environment all for free. Attendees get a chance to share and expand their knowledge and collaboratively develop with SAP technologies, platforms and tools under the watchful guidance of an expert. The events are developer community focused and supported by SAP, exploring technologies available through the SAP Developer Center.
