Have you ever wanted to know how to build an app end-to-end without using any coding?  

The new free learning journey “Develop apps with SAP Build Apps using drag-and-drop simplicity” provides basic knowledge of no-code development with the SAP Build Apps, wrapped in a simple step-by-step business scenario. 



The goal: Lets create an easy-to-understand team app that is applicable to all business fields.  

The structure: The first page is the landing page that includes a personalized mindfulness tracker to visualize your current well-being. The second page shows  the concept of a team oriented social gathering (dinner connect), which has the purpose of assigning you a colleague from your team for dinner and you both a common dish at random.  

The process: 

  1. Receive the necessary basics of SAP Build Apps to the point and start with your project.  

  2. Start creating the User Interface using components such as lists, graphs, texts and determine the style and layout.     

  3. Prepare variables to be able to implement the app logic in the next step to embed core functions of the app and functionality like dark mode.  

  4. Get familiar with basics of the app logic to distinguish between flow functions (build graphically) and formula functions (pre-delivered and ready to use). Implement the knowledge you have acquired in using simple logic flow for navigation purposes of your app. Extend your app through multiple outputs and conditions to realize several app actions side-by-side like the combination of the dark mode with a toggle button.    

  5. Understand how to integrate data into your app using technologies such as OData and REST API.    

  6. Run your app in test mode.  

If you want to convince yourself how easy it really is to create your own app, don`t hesitate and join our free “Develop apps with SAP Build Apps using drag-and-drop simplicity” learning journey right now.
