SAP TechEd had an exciting mix of keynotes highlighting new innovations, product announcements for new solutions, and hands-on sessions to let you try out the latest technologies.

For SAP Fiori developers, perhaps the most exciting news was SAP Build Code, a new solution for professional developers. SAP Build Code, which runs on BTP, includes SAP Business Application Studio, SAPUI5, SAP Fiori elements, and SAP Fiori tools. It also introduces some amazing AI capabilities through Joule, SAP’s new generative AI assistant. This newsletter will cover the main TechEd announcements and a summary of the first-ever ASUG Tech Connect conference.

If you want to meet with fellow developers and the SAP engineers who build our professional development tools, I encourage you to join our monthly SAP Fiori elements and SAP Fiori tools roundtable group.
Our last meeting of 2023 is on December 13 and we resume the series on January 10, 2024.
