It's with both pleasure and excitement that I announce the European City tour of SAP HANA XSA, that's our SPS11 release of the SAP HANA server and XS Advanced (NodeJS development). %40jungthomass and rich.heilman will be flying over to run the very first SAP CodeJam events on this topic in 3 cities in Europe to kick off the topic being generally available for worldwide!

  • April 19 - Germany
  • April 21 - Germany
  • April 22 - Netherlands
  • April 25 - United Kingdom

Our first stop will be Hannover, Germany where Inwerken has offered to host us! Seats are of course limited, from there we will head over to the Netherlands where Ciber has agreed to our second stop,, then we'll give the two experts a short breather until our 3rd and final stop on Monday in London at the Bluefin offices!

Remember the SAP CodeJam is a request based event that takes 5 to 6 hours in a single day and our goal is to expose you to the technology and get you familiar with it! Considering this is a new topic for us we have some hiccups but with two of the world's best experts on site we are sure it will be a fantastic event!

Some of you may be thinking, come on 3 cities and you call that a tour? What about our location? Well the good news is, starting May 1st for the APJ region I have almost a dozen experts ready to host events! For Europe and the rest of the world my number of experts is unfortunately not as high but if you have a interest in this topic go ahead and send in your requests!!!

So why the fuss and big deal about XSA? Well for starters it opens a new world of opportunity up for developers! SAP HANA SPS 11: New Developer Features; Tooling - Getting Started and like Paul we are curious as well how people will take to it My initial thoughts on HANA SPS11 and XS Advanced

Update: Due to incredible demand we are adding a new event to Dusseldorf on April 21st,, these are just 4 events but we are taking requests for more events starting in May!
