openSAP Course - ABAP Development for SAP HANA

I have followed the online openSAP course regarding ABAP development for a SAP HANA based system.

This 4 week course delved deeper into the many changes that have been made into the ABAP language and the ABAP netweaver 7.40 stack to accomodate the usage of SAP HANA as underlying database system.

The changes to the language mostly impact the changed paradigm shift towards "Code To Data" which is needed to unleash the 'real power' of an in-memory database like SAP HANA. 

Furthermore various new concepts like 'Core Data Services' (CDS) are introduced to enable inter-operability with eg HANA XS services.

I am pleased to announce that I completed the course and obtained an official 'Record Of Achievement'.  

Course Description

All SAP products are moving to SAP HANA, the most talked about SAP innovation in recent times. This evolution intensifies the demands on SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP (AS ABAP) to best leverage the features and capabilities of the SAP HANA database. As an ABAP developer you might ask, what is important and necessary to know concerning ABAP development for SAP HANA?

This course is aimed at answering this and other related questions. You are welcome to follow the course without prior technical knowledge of ABAP development or SAP HANA, although prior knowledge is beneficial.

After completing the course, you will understand the important concepts in ABAP development for SAP HANA, how to detect and analyze the performance of your ABAP coding, and which features AS ABAP provides for database-oriented programming.


The four-week online course covered the following topics:

  • Week 1: Getting Started
  • Week 2: ABAP Coding – Where to Optimize?
  • Week 3: ABAP Coding – Ready, Set, Optimize!
  • Week 4: Digging Deeper and Outlook
