What is it?
This is a new Community Event Format. An abapGit BunKai is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software Version control git by using the opensource client abapGit. This FREE Community-Driven event gives the opportunity to practice git foundations, branching, pull, push request, collaboration with git and best practices by using Version control and related Tools and Frameworks to support Continuous Testing, Continuous Collaboration and related Topics for a whole day. This isn’t a conference! Rules are different, and attendees take actively part in the coding experience: act a lot, listen very little.
The Wikipedia description is quite what matches our idea of this format: "Bunkai (分解), literally meaning "analysis" or "disassembly," is a term used in Japanese martial arts referring to process of analyzing Kata and extracting fighting techniques from the movements of a "form" (kata)." With this format, we will make a "Deep Dive" into different topics. Here we start with the ABAP Git Client abapGit.
Why only ABAP?
The abapGit BunKai is a more focused BunKai. We try to focus even more on the specialties of ABAP, to dive even more profound and find out more about how to become better. Never done this before? Just try it!
The Set-up of an abapGit BunKai
A BunKai usually takes place in one day. This will be divided into five to six 45 minutest programming sessions, or better said Deep Dives. Between each session, there is a 15 minutes break for a review, a coffee break and a briefing of the next session. In the morning you will familiarize yourselves with the foundation. In the afternoon it will become more demanding: We will work on different topics. Instead of gaining new insights, you will spend the day practicing these concepts.
As a work method, we generally use Pair-Working as the knowledge transfer is an essential part of this exercise. In each session, you will work with a different partner, select a part of the problem to be solved and begin your journey with Version control mechanism git. If you work together with others and have fun on the set tasks, the learning effect will automatically occur!
What should I bring?
Just bring your laptop, if possible have your access to a NetWeaver Stack (on-premise or cloud). As organizers, we try to provide access to an SAP-System for the event-day. To use your own machine please verify that you can access Systems from outside. For this format, we will use the open-source git client which is developed by Lars Hvam and a bunch of enthusiasts.
Further information could be found on the Website www.ABAPGit.org.
Lunch, snacks, and drinks will be provided by sponsors (without them nothing could happen!!).
