Nil Peksen@NilPeksenBrain 2 SAP HANA Cloud Platform

Brain2SCP is a mindfulness project which aimed to improve people's physical and mental wellbeing. Project uses EEG(IOT) data from individuals brain, processing data for identifying brain activity patterns, about emotional, cognitive or effectiveness state. Identifying brain activity patterns, measuring key cognitive and emotional metrics, and explore those ‘behind the scenes’ in real time at SAP portal. Awareness and mindfulness are key metrics in our daily life and I’d like to present 'What Role Does Mindfulness Play in Employee Wellness?' in a nutshell.

Andre Fischer
@anfiscWhat's new in SAP Cloud Platform ABAP Environment and the ABAP RESTful Programming ModelIn my session I will provide an introduction into the new SAP Cloud Platform ABAP Environment which is available since summer last year. In addition you will get an overview of the latest developments of the ABAP RESTful programming model that allows to build SAP HANA‒optimized SAP Fiori apps based on ABAP in SAP CP and soon also in SAP S/4HANA. The demo will show how to develop a simple transactional application and explain new concepts such behavior definition, behavior implementation and service binding. This session was held in January this year at #sitWDF but I will hopefully be able about some new features that are planned to become available until #sitFRA. 
Sean Campbell@saoirse_22MDK : Rapid Offline "Native" ApplicationsA look at how MDK can be used to give us a fast concept to delivery of offline mobile applications for both Android and iOS.  
Martin HofmannXINGFiori operationsI want to share some of the operation challenges of Fiori. Did you already hear about, cache buster, http2, http compression, the absolut necessary of ssl and the possibility to launch chrome from IE for a faster UI experience? Did you aware of the hardware consumption for Fiori and SAP GUI for html in comparison to native SAP GUI?


Marius ObertDeveloper Evangelist @SAP, @IObert_


SAP Cloud Platform is THE business PaaS which enables you to build cloud-native enterprise apps. While SAP offers several business services (e.g. tax service), hyperscalers offer application-agnostic state-of-the-art cloud services such as facial recognition or storage capabilities. In this session, I would like to give you a brief introduction to the MS Azure platform. You will also learn how to integrate Azure services into SAP’s Cloud Foundry environment so that they can be consumed by your business apps.

Tobias Trapp@ttrappIs your ABAP Code ready for the Cloud?I discuss experiences with the ABAP Cloud Server and focus on the questions of software development and architecture. Is customizing considered as state-of-the-art? How can you avoid it? Hwo can you simplify existing applications and make them robust? 
Thomas Fiedler
@ThFiedlerCopy-Quick Fix-Paste your ABAP Code to the CloudThe benefit of the ABAP environment in SAP Cloud Platform is that you can reuse existing ABAP Code in the Cloud. I will show you what you have to consider that your code is cloud-ready and how you can transfer the code to the cloud. There are well known friends involved in the talk like ADT, abapGit and ATC.  
DJ Adams@qmacroES6 JavaScript in the wildJavaScript is a first class language on SAP Cloud Platform, from a backend perspective with the Node.js runtime on Cloud Foundry, and from a frontend perspective with UI5. ES6 (ECMAScript 6) is the 6th incarnation of the specification that standardises JavaScript. ES6 was released in 2015 and support for it has grown over the years since then. In this session we'll take a look at some ES6 features by taking a random tour through some of the core code that makes up the Node.js flavor of SAP Cloud Application Programming Model. It's nearly always interesting, and often rewarding, to read other folks' code, and I'm sure we can find some gems. 
Christian Braukmüller@CBasisREST APIs
in general
and for SAPOperations 

API .. one of the most used words at the GermanSAPUserConference keynote in February.
For reasons. When IT landscapes get more complex diverse and will run crazy hybrid there is a demand to get/set configuration and runtime data from different sources. Efficient automation is impossible without APIs.

SystemArchitects & BasisAdmins often don't have a developer background - and even developers sometimes are not experienced on how to kickstart with REST APIs

There are several SAP Software components that are looking forward to get touched by you .. giving you all their details about their configuration status .. for further processing, beautification, analytics and to be controlled by you.

I will start from the very basics, focusing on practical examples, useful tools & hints and trying to flatten the learning curve for you.

Volker Buzek@vobuEnd-2-End and Visual Regression testing for UI5 appsthe testing pyramid just recently got extended by UIveri5. It‘s a tool allowing for enhanced testing of UI5 web applications, ranging from e2e tests (cross-browser, including authentication!) to visual regression cycles. (and API tests. and mobile tests. and Offline simulation. and ... but I digress :) Where QUnit and OPA5 reach their limits, UIveri5 might help and go further. I‘ll demonstrate „typical“ test requirements and how to tackle them w/ UIveri5.  
Denise Nepraunig@denisenepraunigDeep Work and Flow

In our modern work world we are interrupted all the time. Notifications popping up everywhere, meetings need to be attended, your co-workers having just a quick question and so on. These things can suck out the joy of work because what is missing is a state of deep work where you can really focus on your task and then you can fall into a state of flow which causes happiness. I’d like to share some experiences and methods from my knowledge worker career and would love to have a discussion about this topic with you. I’ll bring the book “Deep Work” with me so that everyone interested can have a look at it.

Speed up ABAP in Eclipse with Open Source Plugins

In this session I will show three Open Source Eclipse plugins which can be used as AddOn for ABAP in Eclipse: ABAP Code Insight, ABAP Favorites and ABAP Continuous Integration

The session will focus mainly on showing coding examples and how the plugins can improve your ABAP development flow.

What the FaaS
Serverless is a hype for some time already, and SAP has embarked on this paradigm too. Learn about the serverless components on the Cloud Platform. Beware: trojan horse inside that makes you rethink about extensions. 
Daniel Koller@dakollerMachine Learning on the Edge - PollenSensor 2.0

In a local project in Heidelberg w are currently building a next generation of a pollen sensor, which involves putting out small sensors, which collect pollen data. After that we need to identify the collected pollen, because only when you know which pollen are flying you can give a clear indication to whom this could be dangerous. We attempt to solve this with applying a machine learning model on the sensor ("on the edge") itself, to avoid that we have transmit much "useless" data over a thin network.

This sesssion will be about what the problem is, how we approach it... and perhaps also first prototypes & results.

Christian Drumm
Connect a factory with S4HANA in 30 minutes In this session I'll show how simple it is to connect a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) to S4HANA using just SAP standard solutions. In particular the demo will use SAP Cloud Connector, SAP Cloud Platform, SAP Web IDE, S4HANA and the CAL. At the end of the demo we will be able to send production orders from S4HANA to a model factory and start our production empire   
Vincent Weiss
@vfweissSetting up an IoT Scenario with Students - Lessons LearnedLast year we had a group of minor students working on an IoT case, complete with a scaled industrial machine. During the session I will tell a bit about working with the students, lessons learned from working with IoT, both with the SAP Leonardo IoT solution and with an Azure solution.

Smart Coffee Machine – SAP Leonardo IoT ServiceWith smart coffee machines, coffee distributors can monitor the consumption by their customers real-time and automate customer service activities (e.g. filter replacements, consumption registrations, … )
In this session, we will show you how we can make every professional coffee machine smart with the Leonardo Service Internet of Things Application Enablement. Starting from Edge Processing on the device to a beautiful UI5 Dashboard in the Cloud.
Early Bird Session registration closed! Please feel free to contribute further sessions up until March 10th when the call CfP will be closed. You will be informed in CW10 if your proposed session is on the agenda.If you have got questions please feel free to get in touch with us.

Svea Becker@sveabecker3112Reactivation of body & mind

Nowadays most everyone is stressed and strained of everyday life challenges. And not to forget the overload from social media impacts. Therefore, we should clean up our minds from time to time. Considering a holistic approach, I would like to take you on a journey where we are going to practice exercises of activity and relaxation and include short meditation moments.

Don’t worry, you are not going to sweat!

Hitchhikers Guide to SAP NetWeaver

SAP goes Cloud, SAP Analytics Cloud, Cloud for Applications, IaaS, SaaS, PaaS, HaaS, etc, etc. Since several Years everyone talks about the digital transformation and the intelligent enterprise into the Cloud, but the most of our SAP Customers running their mission critical system still „on-premise“. With this Presentation we take a step back to give a glimpse of the SAP NetWeaver evolution, of course without kubernetics, containers, block chains, IoT but everything on the foundation for the countless ABAP Programmers. See also the wise and not so wise decision of the past 1 ½ decades in the SAP history of the SAP Application Platform with a twinkle in the eye.

SAP First Guidance

Roland Kramer@RolandKramer Easy Install of SAP IQ databaseCreating a SAP IQ can be as easy as filling three values in a little HTML page. Since the acquisition of the Sybase company in 2013, the SAP Application Portfolio was enhanced with the most modern and reliable database, event streaming and replication technology at all time. Nevertheless, the implementation of the „real big data storage“ called IQ was never in the priority of the SAP automation efforts. With this Presentation you will see, how everyone can create a SAP IQ database based on the SAP Host Agent interface to support all kind of solutions like SAP-NLS, native IQ Big Data solutions, or hot/hot frozen concept for BW/4HANA

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)


 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 ( 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.


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)

Address: Willemerstr. 11 // 60594 Frankfurt //  (German)  or (GoogleMaps)  

Pre-Event on Friday

Together with SAP's Developer Relations team we offer two SAP CodeJams on Friday as a pre-event:

SAP Cloud Application Programming Model CodeJam with Node.js

Together with DJ Adams, Max Streifeneder and Marius Obert you will explore the new Cloud Application Programming Model. 

In this CodeJam you will get to know the SAP Cloud Application Programming Model (CAPM) in general, and gain hands-on experience by building an app with it. CAPM is available in two flavors, Node.js (JavaScript) and Java; in this CodeJam we will be using Node.js, meaning that executable code will be written in JavaScript.

The app you will build is based upon a demo data model, which you will explore and extend. You will also enhance the default service that CAPM provides, with custom logic. Following that you will build a Fiori user interface (UI) using UI5, based on annotations on the model itself. After deploying the app to your trial Cloud Foundry environment, you will add features to it to extend the service and UI and redeploy.

ABAP in SAP Cloud Platform

Get your hands on ABAP in the cloud and explore the new Restful ABAP Programming model together with Andre Fischer and Ingo Braeuninger.

We will provide access to an ABAP in the cloud system so that you will be able to get you hands dirty developing OData Services using the brand new ABAP RESTful programming model. We will in addition provide access to an SAP S/4HANA 1809 system that serves as a backend system so that you can also implement backend connectivity via OData as well as via RFC.

Please note that this is a bring your own laptop event having installed the latest ABAP Development Tools, SAPGUI (for backend access) and a Trial Account in SAP Cloud Platform.
