The cover picture of the article symbolises the day: HANA Tech Night is celebrating its 10th birthday. And as with every HTN, there will be pizza and beer. But not only...

A brief look back at SAP CodeJam and the 10th HANA Tech Night, both held on 3 June in Mannheim. It was a really successful day where I learnt a lot, had a lot of fun and met many interesting people. Unfortunately, it took me a few days to finish this article. The last two weeks were very exhausting with Code Connect and training courses.

The SAP CodeJam Machine Learning

My most exciting SAP CodeJam to date! Vitaliy Rudnitskiy gave an excellent presentation on the topic of machine learning. Entertaining, informative and not a lot of typing or copy & paste. Thanks to Jupyter Notebook, the exercises are very easy!

There were a few spontaneous changes to the planned agenda:

  • Christohp Morgen gave uns some additional Informations about the Predictive Analysis Libary (PAL)
  • The coffee machine broke down. I got the portafilter coffee machine from the office at short notice and then acted as a barista.
  • At the end, Benedict showed us a bit about text mining.

There were still two hours between Code Jam and HTN. So we fired up the barbecue and got started with the refreshments.

Last but not least came the presentation by Christopher Kampmann. He shared some practical experiences from SAP DataSphere projects with us. There is a very interesting point on the slides: Bitemporal master data. This always puts developers and consultants in a knot.

As always, the HANA Tech Night was a great event with outstanding presentations and lots of interesting contacts. With the SAP CodeJam before and the barbecue event in between, it was taken to a whole new level.

I'm already looking forward to the next 10 HANA Tech Nights!
