Will be driven by the session suggestions of all participants. 

Take a look at for our agenda timeline. Here is the complete list:


Sessions on the #sitFRA agenda
SpeakerTitle DescriptionSlides
Tobias TrappLogical Abduction and an Application in Business Rules ManagementI introduce techniques for root cause analysis für complex systems developed in the 80's. As an application I show how to explain the outcome of a BRFplus rule System. You will see that explanation is something different than a trace or debugging using DSM Tools. Warning - this talk contains a little bit of maths but there is no reason for panic. The slides are here. 
Tsovinar ChugaszyanHighlights of Smart City World Congress 2015

Continuing good tradition of presenting conference highlights that I attend, this time I will share what I've seen and heard about the future of our cities at Smart City World Congress 2015 . I will show some photos/videos of  cool devices that were at the Expo and will summarize the talks that had interesting insights.

SAP was also part of the congress with its new "Future Cities" Initiative (btw I was not part of SAP's delegation :)). Check out SAP's trailer about the congress.

For more information on the topic, please check:

Daniel RidderHow to RESTify your ABAP backend

Everybody talks about how to develop FIORI applications. In this lecture I want to share some knowledge about what is needed to provide delightful FIORI applications for your existing ABAP backend.

In this session I will show you an example how to bridge a stateful ABAP backend with a stateless Fiori application. We'll focus on how it works - and not the Fiori application itself (UI5Con is over (smile)).

Here are the slides of my second talk.

Thorsten FranzHANA Sidecar MagicSome amazing things you can do with HANA sidecars to your ABAP System. 
Christian DrummHCP on the ISS - How to connect an Astro-Pi to HCP using IoT Service Quite some time ago I was looking for an interesting project to apply my newly acquired Elixir to. Therefore, I set out on the endeavour to connect an Astro-Pi to the HCP using the IoT service. In this session I'll share some of the experience I had on the way and why sometimes low level bit manipulation is quite good fun (smile).slides

Denise Nepraunig, Christian BraukmüllerUI5con WrapUp Wrap-up of the UI5con

You missed the first ever openUI5 conference just the day before #sitFRA?

Recap at the same historic location (wink)  - bringing both events together for 30 minutes.
as this event.

What could be better than taking two experts in "Last-minute-slides-creators" for that wrap-up? (wink)

Denise NepraunigIoT made easy Maybe you've heard that you need to program microcontrollers in C++ and also that you need to have an additional device called a “programmer" to flash your code onto the hardware. After a lot of tinkering with cables and further electronic components you might be able to read your sensor values offline, but after that, how do you connect it to the cloud? 

The Tessel is a micro controller platform with built in wifi, which is a great solution for that scenario. It is based on node.js and can easily be programmed with JavaScript! You just need to hook it up to your USB port to get started. There are several modules for it, e.g. the climate (temperature, humidity) and ambient module (light, sound). There are many more modules and they simply work as plug and play devices. 

This saves you from tinkering around with resistors, cables or circuit diagrams. The Tessel in combination with the SAP IoT services enable you to easily send your data to the cloud. Finally you can build a SAPUI5 application to access this data.

Thomas RitterLightweight Usability Testing Usability testing might be the most important type of testing. But it often gets cut due to time constraints.

During the last year I started experimenting with usability testing in a Scrum environment. How can I fit a usability testing process into a four week long development cycle?

In this talk I want to present my current approach and share the experiences I had so far.

Wouter Lemaire, Jérémy Coppey, Jonas Vanderkelen,Hana CarGoogle, Apple, Telsa, they are all developing and testing automatic driving cars. 
Their flaw: the data is stored in the car, talks only car to car when in visual sight, ...
We present to you the "Hana Car" 
This car drives automatic, detects hazards, car to server communication, brings you at your destination and that all powered by HANA.
The IOT webservice is the perfect channel to make all this happen!
Daniel RidderBest Practices SAP Gateway Builder

Using SAP Gateway Builder to provide OData Services. There are some Hints&Hacks I would share with you.

Here is the link to my slides

Daniel KollerChallenges in Infrastructure Monitoring& experiments & visualizations to address them. May contains grains of algorithms & SAP ITOASlideshare
 Rainer Winkler Solving SAP problems without reading code

I present a new OpenSource project for a FAMIX, Moose Extraktor for SAP applications . I was inspired to do this after I heard the speech by Tudor Girba on the SAP insideTrack in Munich 2015 , where he presented Moose Analysis as a technology to visualize Software. But at that time no extractor for SAP applications (and ABAP) was available. This gap is to be filled with the new OpenSource extractor.

I will give a short demonstration of the current status and will discuss potential enhancements. For instance adding notes, links to requirement engineering tools and the problems that arise if names are refactored. I will mention the option to extract not only ABAP but also Domain Specifc languages like SAP BW metadata.

I will explain why the extractor is extracting a FAMIX model and not UML. 

I wrote a blog on SCN:

 Karol KaliszWhat's new in IoT & Industry 4.0 Space


The IoT topic is currently getting more and more attention in the search, but also in the industry ( google trend ). In this session I want to share some scenarios which are interesting in this space. Basically, which data can be collected by IoT devices and how to make them valuable for businesses.

Internet of Things is a basis for the Industry 4.0. Even if the technology and scenarios are not in common use yet – it is worth to take a look into the future. Starting with simple scenarios for real time improvements of common industrial workflows – up to complex processes driven by automated processes based on IoT networking.

IoT is an area where all parts must work smooth together and connect with each other to achieve required results. There is space also for Mobile devices and applications whcih play very important part in those scenarios, provisioning data and helping in decisions every time and everywhere.

How the devices can work in connected way, which platforms and software is required for the operation. What about security and legal responsibility in such connected Systems?

We’ll be leaving Rödelheim together and travel with the S-Bahn to Lokalbahnhof located in Frankfurt Sachsenhausen. If you’d like to get a glimpse of Frankfurt’s famous skyline we'll step out of the S-Bahn one stop earlier and walk the remaining distance – crossing over the Main river with a beautiful view of Frankfurt’s old town and city center with all those famous skyscrapers.

With a bit luck we might see some test runs for the Luminale on our way.

REGISTRATION FOR PARTICIPANTS  is now available! (starting Feb1st 12:15pm)   closed! Waiting list is full!         

We loved the former WIKI registration table because of it's transparancy.  But to avoid any corruption of the WIKI page when the page is edited in parallel we are going to use EventBrite for participant registration. 

This is the current list of participants incl. speakers (Feb 29th):

To reduce administration efforts and delays we now offer any upcoming free tickets to the next 10  (marked yellow) in the waiting list at the same time.  
=> First-come first-serve. 

An individiual trigger in a sequential order turned out to be too time-consuming with long wait-times.
Based on our experience only very few late cancelation will be done.

Pre-Event  (Friday): UI5con

We don't have a CodeJam as a pre-event in 2016.

This year we are co-operating with the OpenUI5-community and run the first ever 1-day community UI5 conference on Friday:  UI5con Frankfurt 2016

The UI5con is unfortunatly already fully booked. The number of registrations (and the speed they came in) was much more than we expected.
The #sitFRA OrgaTeam is strongly involved in preparation and therefore we are only able to run UI5con with the same ressources (event location, catering, infrastructure, brains).
Switching to another location for more people to join is therefore not possible. 


Any tips to take into account? 

    • Dress casual, it's a community event - not a business event. And it is Saturday. (wink)
    • If you register yourself, please show up at March 12th. Otherwise we will really miss you - and someone who was just on the waiting list will be sad.
      If anything crosses your plans.. please cancel your ticket at eventbrite!
      It helps us to fill up the list with people from the waiting list.
      In 2015 we were happy to have a nearly 100% percent show-up rate and many happy faces. Let's repeat that! 

More tips from your side as an participant? Please list them and help making it a day to remember!

Organizing Team

The event is organized by  Christian BraukmüllerTobias Trapp and Hendrik Neumann with a lot of help from the local SAP Stammtisch Frankfurt.

You can get in touch with us via email:  info @ or twitter: @_sitfra

or contact our experts (wink) directly via Twitter.
