As you work your way through the course, you can try out everything in your own development project and practice developing with SAPUI5 with lots of exercises. You’ll create responsive apps that adapt to different devices and discover the enterprise-grade features of SAPUI5. After that, you’ll go on to learn about Web app navigation and application testing, truly mastering SAPUI5.
From May 17, you will have access to a “Get Started” week to help you understand the skill level required to complete the course and the exercises. This is an optional week and there are no assignments; but you can take the self-tests to check your knowledge, prior to the official start date.
*The content of this course applies to both SAPUI5 and OpenUI5. OpenUI5 is free and open source and includes all the main features of SAPUI5, the library SAP uses for its Web applications.
Throughout this course, we’ll be using practical hands-on exercises to learn SAPUI5. We’ll use SAP Web IDE as a cloud-based development environment. It is available via SAP HANA Cloud Platform (HCP)* and is free of charge. No installation is required. We’ll provide instructions on how to set up SAP HCP and SAP Web IDE, which will be sufficient for the scope and duration of the course.
SAPUI5 is a very flexible UI development toolkit for HTML5. You can develop and deploy apps in many different environments. We’ll be focusing on SAP’s cloud development tools during this course, as they are easy to learn and do not require any additional setup. If you are an advanced Web developer, you are free to choose your own development and runtime environment.
Some of the hands-on exercises for this openSAP course were designed to be used with SAP Cloud Platform Neo trial accounts. These accounts are no longer actively supported and as of November 2020 it is not possible to create new ones. Please note that the exercises may not work when using an SAP Cloud Platform multi-cloud trial account.
*) Please note: SAP has announced that SAP HANA Cloud Platform is being renamed to SAP Cloud Platform. You can read more about the reasons behind the change and what you can expect in the official SAP Press Release.
