Location: KMD office in Ballerup, Denmark

The theme: SAPUI5 / UI Development Toolkit for HTML5

Some local history: (source Wikipedia)

Ballerup is in the north-western suburbs of Copenhagen and is part of Copenhagen's urban area.

The name of Copenhagen reflects its origin as a harbor and a place of commerce. The original designation, from which the contemporary Danish name derives, was Køpmannæhafn, meaning "merchants' harbor".

Copenhagen is the most populated city in Denmark and one of the largest in the Nordic countries. Copenhagen Municipality has 591,481 inhabitants.

There was a demographic boom in the 1990s and first decade of the 21st century, largely due to immigration to Denmark.

Because of Copenhagen's northern latitude, the number of daylight hours varies considerably between summer and winter. On the summer solstice, the sun rises at 04:26 and sets at 21:58, providing 17 hours 32 minutes of daylight. On the winter solstice, it rises at 08:37 and sets at 15:39 with 7 hours and 1 minute of daylight.

Copenhagen is recognized as one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the world. In 2001 a large offshore wind farm was built just off the coast of Copenhagen at Middelgrunden. It produces about 4% of the city's energy. Copenhagen aims to be carbon-neutral by 2025.

The goals:

During the CodeJam, we provided access to useful online information, exercises and tutorials but also guidelines regarding the set of tools to use with the SAP HANA Cloud Platform and SAPUI5 and to build an application.

One key aspect of the session was not only to provide the audience with tips and tricks regarding the technology and the tools but also around common errors and ways to debug problems.

So, whether you are a newbie or proficient, don't be shy and join the next one, you will always learn something but also in many occasion teach others something you have learn and share your experience!

The networking:

As stated before, a CodeJam is not successful unless the attendees manage to code and deploy an app and also share their knowledge and experiences around SAP and other technologies.

This is also why we keep the event really informal in term of agenda, try to have coffee breaks in the morning and afternoon, and off course lunch break all together.

Want your own event?

You can request your own event by simply sending us an email to
