It was March and April of 2012 when we kicked off with the SAP CodeJam format and now with us almost at the end of 2014 I thought it was time to give a brief review of where we are today.

Quite amazing to think about this and see that we have worked with over 6000 folks on different SAP technologies and that in almost 100 cities! That elusive number 100th city we'll have before the end of the this year as well! So what is all of this? Well, SAP CodeJam is a 5 to 6 hours hands-on coding and networking event where attendees share their knowledge and collaboratively develop with SAP technologies, platforms and tools in a fun and casual environment.

As the events are based on a request system those numbers are in essence community driven around topics such as:

We also try to share what is happening during and after the events as well, and our Facebook page has almost 1500 likes and our Flipboard has had 165 articles and over 2500 flips!

When we went live with the format and as we modified and fine tuned it over the years I'm not sure anyone thought we'd be here. But yet here we are alive, strong and pushing tech into the hands of those interested and in a way that has proven to be fun, relaxed and interesting!

We already have events planned for 2015 and we are accepting requests on a daily basis! So be sure to make your requests soon!

What can we look forward to in 2015? Well we have the same topics and then some! One of the more highly demanded topics we are adding for 2015 is SAP HANA with IoT! As well as more around UI5 and Fiori!
