In many smaller parts I will teach you how to build your first application and extend it step by step with more features. I will take you through a connected journey from the initial requirements to a full application.

In my use case the customer needs a custom seminar mgmt. that covers his very individual needs and therefore we quickly create him a custom solution. If you are new, just start with the first video of the series where I introduce the use case and continue from there with the following videos step by step.

Here I will list all my videos by topic but actually they will all be connected and it will be best to follow them one by one as each one builds on the previous one. But also each video for itself should explain the content so that you can also just jump into the one you are interested in directly. For each video I created one blog post where I also write a few words but if you prefer you can also find the entire collection in one YouTube Playlist.

I will keep updating this entry here and by time it should be a great source of information for all beginners. I will try to update it regularly and post regularly but I cannot yet promise you how fast I will be 🙂

Please note that I will focus on extending the SAP Sales Cloud and SAP Service Cloud in my examples.

Stay tuned for the first videos coming end of 2019 and more in Jan 2020 🙂
