Special ABAP track
We'll have a special ABAP track at sitFRA 2017. Our dear programming language is far from dead. It's alive and kicking! With ABAP 7.4 and 7.5 many new features where added to the language making it more productive and more fun to use. ABAP in Eclipse proves to be a notable improvement bringing real refactoring capabilities to the ABAP world, easy use of Unit Tests and much more..
On the one hand with S/4HANA and the S/4 programming model including technologies like CDS, Push Channels, BOPF, BRF+, Gateway, Fiori Elements (note how we didn't say HANA ups..) the road of ABAP to the Future becomes clear and on the other hand with the ABAP developer edition free for download and abapGit as an easy to use option to share ABAP code with the community via Github (or other git repositories) the ABAP community itself is more vibrant than ever.
We'll have ABAP specialists from SAP on site (Jasmin Gruschke, Jens Weiler, Thomas Fiedler to name some) which will give us an overview into the current state of ABAP affairs and an maybe an outlook of what might come. Furthermore community rockstars like Christian Drumm, Uwe Fetzer, our very own Tobias Trapp and many more will talk about all things ABAP.

In 2015 and 2016 we were very happy to have a relaxing evening downtown Frankfurt with about 40 participants. Let's repeat that!
(It's pay-your-own-bill and not covered by the event entrance fee)
Together with the UI5con attendees, we'll meet up at Block House Europa-Allee starting 19:30. The restaurant is well known as one of the best steak houses in Frankfurt. It is located near the S-Bahn stop "Frankfurt am Main Messe" / "Frankfurt fair".
We'll be leaving Rödelheim together and travel only for two stops with the S-Bahn to "Frankfurt am Main Messe" / "Frankfurt fair". From there we have a short walk of about 11 Minutes.
Address: Europa-Allee 12-22 // 60327 Frankfurt // Route: Google maps .
Visit the home of the #SAPStammtischFRA. The place where the idea for an SAPInsideTrack in Frankfurt was born end of 2014.
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.
Location: Apfelwein DAX
Local restaurant with classic Hessian food and drink specialties. We’ll introduce you to “Grüne Sauce” (green sauce), “Schneegestöber” (snow flurry), “Handkäs” (hand cheese) and “Apfelwein” (apple wine) and you will love it! But of course the Schnitzel is also part of the menu
Address: Willemerstr. 11 // 60594 Frankfurt // https://goo.gl/maps/86ocA

Pre-Event (Friday): UI5con
In 2016 the first-ever UI5con took place in Frankfurt.
It was an experiment - and the result was overwhelming. Our dutch community friends picked it up and made the second UI5con in Eindhoven.
Now it's our turn again to make it happen. Even more community driven than last year.
Any tips to take into account?
- Dress casual, it's a community event - not a business event. And it is Saturday.
- 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 registration!
It helps us to fill up the list with people from the waiting list.
In 2015 and 2016 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 a participant? Please list them and help making it a day to remember!
