As every few months an updated release of SAP HANA Express Edition is available (see Release Notes) a regular task is upgrading the own HANA Express to gain bug fixes and new features and simply stay up to date. (Note: For initial setup up of HANA Express Edition on your local computer please follow the […]
There are several options to start with HANA Express Edition (or shortly HXE). My favorite is to use the vm based version of HXE, because it is very convenient and fast to setup. You can have it besides your normal development environment, which is another advantage. I had to switch from my MacBook to a […]
The event took place 30th June 2017 in St. Leon-Rot at SAP itself (UI5con@SAP) and this time it felt like a real big conference (with more than 50 sessions and 400 participants), reflecting the importance and also maturity of the UI5 topic itself. Location at SAP and running the event on a working day allows the presence of all of the core UI5 people. Which was a great opportunity for everybody to meet personally with the people, you mainly know only from GitHub commits. Fantastic! It makes a big difference to meet in real life and face to face. The majority of the presentation was also held by SAP UI5 team, which did open up many insides, what we can expect in the bright SAPUI5/OpenUI5 future. But still there was plenty of space for sessions from non-SAP community members.
UI5con – the first ever conference focusing on SAPUI5/OpenUI5 took place on 11th March 2016 in Frankfurt. UI5con is driven by the community and not solely by SAP folks.
I was pleased that my proposal for a session was accepted and hence got one of the eligible 80 seats. The demand was so high, that the UI5con was sold out within less than an hour and more than 150 people put themselves on the waiting list.
There was a interesting post „MVC – Model View Controller, Minimum Viable Code“ from master DJ Adams, which did the groundwork for this article. I will call it UI5 One Pager instead of minimum viable code technique.
So the idea behind is to have a UI5 MVC template with which you can quickly try or test something with UI5 MVC concept. Everything (Bootstrap, View, Model and Controller) in one single page/file, but still a full-grown ui5 mvc app.
To add something useful to the existing code, let’s provide the UI5 One Pager as File Template for JetBrains WebStorm (my favorite Web IDE) and also use the new UI5 module concept (AMD – Asyncronous Module Definition), which is propagated since v1.28/v1.30 of OpenUI5/SAPUI5.
