Update 2020 - New video series

I plan to re-work beginning of 2020 all videos and make them available for you 🙂 For now I only started but more will come 🙂 - Link to new video series

I wil keep this page until I managed to re-create most content but this will take some time.



In this blog entry I want to do a quick summary of all How-To-Videos that I created for SAP Cloud Application Studio. Further below I list every single video and give some basic details about each video. All videos are in HD 720p :smile:

Video Overview:

The playlist contains two types of videos:

University Alliances Training for SAP Cloud Applications Studio
The first 11 videos explain in 1.5 hours based on one example the basics of developments. In the introduction I also explain very basic architectural concepts of the platform itself. These are originally based on ByDesign but the concept and also the enviroment is the same for Cloud for Customer, so I would also recommend it to any Cloud for Customer (C4C) beginner in order to understand the basics of our Partner Development Infratstructure (PDI).

Further advanced topics (based on Cloud for Customer)
All other videos are always specific to one topic but also based on a very similar use case (Bonus Plan) which is earlier explained in the University Alliances Training videos.

Also vatsav created a good starting point with Ways to get "Help"

And ralf.baumann with Getting started with the SAP Cloud Applications Studio

There is also an official SAP Cloud Applications Studio training by SAP which also leverages parts of my video tutorials but there you have even a person that can directly explain in addition why you do what you do :smile: .
