You might be a graduate wondering what to do next or you might be a person with working experience attempting to acquire new knowledge. So, what could be of interest and value for you? Since you have landed on this page reading this article, I assume you are considering improving your skills in the IT area. Well. Good choice! Our world becomes more and more digital every day, so IT jobs are in high-demand and it is worth to invest in IT knowledge.

But do you want to be a programmer, data scientist, or web designer? If you want to become the latter, keep reading this article and check out the learning journey on SAP Learning site.

So, what do web designers do? In short, they are responsible for the look and feel of a webpage and how appealing it is to the target group. If you are a creative person, this is definitely something for you! However, the role has evolved over the past years. Now, on the job portals you can also find postings on UX designer, UX developer or web developer, and front-end developer.

UX designer role is a clear evolution of a web developer role. User Experience (UX) describes how users interact with websites, apps, and other digital products. As businesses strive to create digital products, they need to meet the needs and expectations of their customers. And this why a well-designed UX is a critical factor in today’s digital world. A poorly designed UX can frustrate users, a well-designed UX improves user satisfaction and can lead to increased customer retention. Help the businesses to make the world run better!

If in the past there was a clear distinction between web designer and web developer, over time this has blurred. Web developers or front-end developers not only create appealing designs of a web page, they also implement some logic how the web page should behave when used by the user. It is beneficial if a designer has an understanding of programming languages and coding, and a developer understands how front-end design works.

At SAP, we have created a learning journey that opens for you the doors into the UX world and prepares you for both: becoming a UX designer and developer with the outlook to do it also for SAP-specific projects.

  • At start, you get explained what are the basics of web design and UX by building your first HTML page.

  • As you continue, you will adjust the look and feel of the page you have created by using CSS language.

  • After that, you get to know the JavaScript programming language to build page functions and provide front-end logic to your page.

This is all you need to get started with programming and build user interfaces!

Last but not least, the learning journey explains what SAP Fiori is. If you have never heard of it, you will learn the basics of the UI technology and the UX design principles used to build SAP apps – we call it SAP Fiori! And you will get to know the tools required to build your first SAP Fiori app. This part of the learning journey will differentiate you from other web designers out there since it prepares you to work on exclusive projects for SAP customers. At the end you will get a record of achievement that you can share in your professional network and prove your skills.
