  Who

For SCN community members (no matter if you are a customer, consultant or SAP employees) who want to share or catch-up on their knowledge.

      • Share what you are passionate about by holding a session.
      • Inspire others with your passion
      • Be curious to hear about new things & new insights and participate.

Special tracks

This year we like to spread the attention to several different topics.

  • On the one hand S/4HANA is getting more and more relevant in daily life .. as well OnPremise and in the Cloud
  • The newest Netweaver and HANA releases are bringing a huge set of new features and ABAP is not your grandfathers ABAP anymore
  • Different views on the different Clouds offers and all the services around are worth to cover from a business, developer and a operational perspective.
  • As we do not have a dedicated full day for a UI5con (as in 2016 + 2017) ..  we like to have a block of UI5 releated talks for a UI5conLight.
    The "UI5Top5 2018" contest is ongoing .. and the plan is to announce the 2018 winners at our UI5conLight Track presented by Twan van de Broek. (Details)


  • Any other topic:
    SAPInsideTrack is an open format and we are not bound to mainstream topics.
      Anything what you as an expert might see as "daily business" - might be a insight into a new world for everybody else.
      Anything what you are fascinated by - might fascinate others.

    Ping us at  @ sitfra.de or twitter: @_sitfra if you are not sure .. we can evaulate with you how your idea fits to the agenda.

    If you are passionate about your topic .. we are pretty sure you are at the right place at the speakers desk of an SAPInsideTrack.
    Hint: An SAP InsideTrack is not the place to present a product or an service for marketing purposes. Never a good idea to do so at a community event (wink)
     
    Be part of the sitFRA and submit your session now => next chapter explains how to do so.

Abstract

Please be detailed! Give us (organizers AND the participants) the chance to know what you are planning. (Content wise and structure)

Add a "retake" at the end in case your session was already presented at another event.
(The effort to build a session is high and the limited number of participants at a SIT - therefore suggesting a session that was held before is very valid. Others do get the chance to hear what you are sharing)
Mentioning the retake helps participants to choose from.

Regardless of using the test first or test last approach in ABAP, we have to provide test data for our unit tests. As often test data can be already viewed in debugger during bug investigation,
it would be nice to have a feature which exports this already given data from current debugging session context in such a convenient way, that this export can be used very easy in our ABAP coding.In this live coding session we will see how to do that.

ABAP state-of-the-art – Do’s and Dont‘s and How to be Successful when going beyond Simple Prototypes

In this talk we discuss the overall architecture of state-of-the-art ABAP applications from different perspectives: principle of one, digitization and beautiful UIs. In fact, this comes out of the box if you use the so called ABAP New Programming Model using a generative approach. But there is one drawback: if you want to develop slightly more complex transactional applications, f.e. more than one BO type in a Fiori UI, then you will have to solve certain problems. The Developer Guides form SAP won’t help you since the challenges are not predictable even for programmers with senior ABAP skills.

To understand this advanced talk you should be familiar with the Big Picture of the so called ABAP New Programming model f.e. described here: https://blogs.sap.com/2017/12/07/be-prepared-for-the-new-abap-programming-model-in-sap-s4hana/ If you want to go deeper then use this as starting point: https://blogs.sap.com/2016/04/04/getting-started-abap-programming-model/

"Quidquid agis, prudenter agas ..." - Learnings from a transition from on-prem to cloud native

Successfully developing Cloud Native applications is often regarded from a purely technological perspective - what design aspects have to be considered, what frameworks are best fitting and so on. However, there are many more especially non-technological factors that you have to take into account and that will influence your success.

In this talk, I would like to draw your attention to these factors and share the experiences and learnings that we made when developing our first Cloud Native applications.

ChatOps is a collaboration model that connects people, tools, process, and automation into a transparent workflow.

In this talk I discuss different #chatops use cases for using the team chat tool Slack in IT Operations. It is all about how you can improve communication & situational awareness in decentralized IT infrastructures by using this kind of tools.

Additionally I'll give hints on how to start and how to integrate your own tools into Slack.

Community events – What they can do, what they can become Community is all about people and nothing compares to real life interactions when it comes to building strong relationships. So it is at the events where we see the SAP community come alive in a special way: The learning, the sharing of expertise and meeting friends. The SiT format is community at it´s best, but what makes them special?

How can we ensure the high standard of SITs that attendees are expecting? Especially as the format is growing to more locations with new organizers. 

What could a “portfolio” of event formats look like that gives passionate community members different opportunities to connect depending on the size of the target group, access to funding/sponsors or the time that they are able to invest in organizing?

How does all of this contribute to building a more diverse and inclusive community for all of us?

If you want to be part of shaping the future of community events, please join this session to learn more, share your experience, discuss in small groups, work on and finally present ideas!

Most of us apply the monthly patches for our Operating system (Macbooks, windows systems, etc). But what about the monthly security patches for our SAP systems?

Many SAP running organisations don't do this as regular as they should. Some topics I'd like to discuss with the audience are:
- Why don't they do that?
- What are the risks involved?
- How to improve things?

Learning and have fun with technology from SAP D-Shop and SAP Mentors

DRAFT - PLACE HOLDER - MORE/changes TO COME:

Did you see all the fun gadgets at SITKIDS Walldorf and Bern? You wonder if and how you can leverage?

There are several tools and gadgets that can be used by kids but also adults for SAP community events like “SITKIDS”, “SAP Learn Hack Play”, Hackathons, Team building, and more.

SAP D-shop and SAP Mentors are sponsoring and supporting these efforts with cool and fun material, and now opening for public.

Meet Cameron Rouse from d-shop, Kati Fischer from SAP Mentors and the mini-developers (kids) Phil Fischer and Jasper and Emily Rouse. Learn why it exists and how it operates. See some real life examples from different locations. d-shop wants to change the world and save people and employees lives from boredom, depression and anxiety. D-shop wants innovation to be fun, open to new ideas and technology and have a common purpose that unites. It’s a culture thing. Learn how you can support d-shop activities and connect with other like-minded individuals.

As a special we might have a play-lab where you can play around during breaks.

Prototyping (not only) Fiori applications with build.me

In this session we’re going to take a look on build.me, a very powerful tool for rapid prototyping Fiori applications. You’re going to see how easy it becomes to

  • Develop and design clickable prototypes
  • Discuss in a very collaborative way your prototype with an audience
  • Review results of your studies (e.g. heatmaps, clickpaths)
  • Export your Fiori application in SAP WebIDE via Plugin (or on your own what ever server)

In this hands-on we will design, discuss and develop a sitFRA Fiori prototype application in less than 30 minutes.

  Evening Event 

     

A tradition of our InsideTrack is the pre- and after meetup downtown Frankfurt.
We were very happy to have a relaxing evening downtown Frankfurt with about 40 participants in the last years. Let's repeat that!
 (It's pay-your-own-bill and not covered by the event entrance fee)
Friday

 

For all participants who are arriving the day before .. and the participants of the friday event we'll meet up at Zu den 12 Aposteln (http://www.12aposteln-frankfurt.de/) starting 19:00. The restaurant has some traditional delicious dishes and home made beer. It is located near the S-Bahn/U-Bahn stop "Konstablerwache". 

We’ll be leaving Rödelheim together and travel with the S-Bahn to Konstablerwache located in Frankfurt City. From there we have short walk of about 5 minutes.

Saturday

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 recommended menu (wink)

Hotel suggestions

This year the hotel situation looks quite good. That means low prices at the moment and plenty hotels around are available.

We recommend to book with cancellation option.

Depending on your arrival and your plans to join us in the pub on Friday and/or Saturday hotels around the train line might be a good choice  (Check the map above to get an idea.)
