Rules of the game: SAP blog.

Lecture 30 min 

Kimmo Jokinen

Teemu Kemppainen

@KimmoJokinenKimmo Jokinen - LinkedInAutomate Code formatting and validation with GruntJS

Validation and formatting of code becomes crucial when UI5 apps and developer teams grow bigger. Learn how to automate static validation and code formatting into your development workflow.

Lecture 30 min 
3Markus Braunbeck  SAP Webide PluginsExpand the webide for your needs. This talk will cover the basics of how to write plugins for sapwebide.Lecture 
5Volker Buzek@vobuXing / LinkedInhandling asynchrony in UI5 applications (and how to test that (smile))managing asynchronous code is one of the core ingredients of performant and reliable (web-/mobile-) applications. Yet it is a challenging topic to grasp, with "the web" being stateless and thus tempting to "go synchronous to make sure".
This talk will show how to orchestrate async HTTP(S) calls with JSON- and OData-models, coping with off-sync storage situations and a better technique to callback-based situations with the help of Promises - and how to unit-test all of this.
Lecture (and live samples)
6Sebastian Wennemers@S7nW7s Experiments with functional reactive SAPUI5

Functional reactive programming is a hype topic today. Have a look how these concepts could play together with SAPUI5.

Lecture (and live samples)
7Sebastian Wennemers@S7nW7s 

How to Integrate Open Source JavaScript Libraries in Custom SAPUI5 Controls

In this code review, you’ll learn how to integrate the open source JavaScript library OpenLayers in a custom SAPUI5 control. 

Lecture (and live samples) 
8Martin Hofmann XingFiori and SAP Business Client hand in hand togetherHow do's SAP Business Client and Fiori fits together ? See a Fiori like app integrated into a Sidepanel of SAP Business Client.Lecture (and live samples) 
9Vladimir Hilderink@Hilderink Latest features of JavaScript

In this lecture, I will explain about the latest features in JavaScript 6 and 7.

As you might know, JavaScript comes in versions. The standards are being set by ECMA International. The latest finished edition of JavaScript is known as ECMAScript 7.

This presentation will be equal to the presentation given in the Netherlands plus the delta of the latest 4 months.

10Manuel Blechschmidt@Manuel_BWebsite / LinkedIn / XingOpenUI5 and Java EE from nothing to a working WebApp on an Amazon EC2 box

In this session we will create a new Java EE 7 maven project with an JPA bean than exposing this bean with Olingo as an JAX-RS OData service, consuming it with an OpenUI5 client and in the end deploying it on a new amazon ec2 box.

The main focus is on live coding and solving all challenges that arise during the session. Further it should show how to publish and app from idea to final operations and give examples which technologies are available for the different layers: Database, Persistence, Business Logic and Frontend

The speaker will also be available at the come together afterwards.

Do you know our main channels to connect and contribute to UI5 technology? Github, YouTube, Slack: the usual suspects might ring a bell! But we have far more in store for our fellow community. Did you hear about our new blog series straight from the labs and a page where you can list your projects to easily find contributors? We feature your blog posts and articles related to UI5 technology in our feed and are happy to show your content on our YouTube channel as well. There is loads more to come, so let's collaborate - new ideas are always welcome!

Think UI5con 

About a year ago the very first UI5con took place right here in Frankfurt – now we’re back again and want to take some time to reflect: what do we like about UI5con, where do we as a community want to go, and what should drive our actions?
Get active and join us exchanging ideas, wishes and expectations around UI5con!
In this Design Thinking workshop we’ll work on specific questions in small teams of maximum of 20 participants. Afterwards we’ll present our outcomes to the whole audience.

Workshop (would be great to get an hour on this) 
15Nils Janßen AOK Systems GmbHWhats RTASome time ago SAP released a new feature for UI5 Applications called RTA. I'll present this feature and show its capabilities and restrictions.Lightning Talk (tiny Demo maybe) 
 16 Nabi Zamani  Nabisoft Displaying Server Side OData Messages in UI5 UI5 has some comfortable features to display error, success, warning, and info messages in different ways. These messages might be triggered on the frontend, i.e. as a result of a form validation on the frontend. However, sometimes you want to display error messages you receive from the backend. In order to handle error messages received from a backend (i.e. in case of a failed CRUD operation) both frontend and backend must have a „contract" of the message format. In this session you will see how easy it is to visualize messages received from OData services. Lecture/Demo

#APIFriday Live Edition: UI5 + APIs

In this session, we will take a look at integrating external data in your UI5 application via AJAX. We’ll also cover how to bind the external data to a JSON model so that it can be used in your view. If you are fan of the #APIFriday blog series I write or just want to know more about using APIs with UI5, this is a chance to see how to integrate an API “live” while I share some tips, tricks, and pitfalls I have encountered and how you can avoid them.
