Addresses the ever-increasing focus on technology and developers
in the world of SAP and indeed wider enterprise IT. No longer the remit of just
ABAP developers, SAP technology and development now covers an ever-expanding
myriad of technologies, paradigms and TLA’s. Think Core Data Services (Node.js
and Java) with the Cloud Application Programming Model using the Business
Application Programming Studio as well as ABAP in VS Code.
Mainly focused on the furthering of knowledge and skills in the tech space, this SIG will often look at ways of expanding understanding of how SAP development approaches are changing and how developers can take advantage of these changes. This could range from the evolving nature of ABAP through to bleeding edge topics such as blockchain, IoT and machine learning.
The underlying goal will be to figure out how and where new technology and development opportunities can be used in the day to day world of an SAP developer. Developer SIG events will often be more hands-on in nature, offering something tangible in terms of experience and knowledge but also sharing experience (both good and bad) from SAP, partners and of course other SAP customers.
