  • Building a Startup – Your value proposition and elevator pitch

    This is part 2 of my blog series called: “Building a start-up in the SAP HANA space“. Over the past 15 years, I have developed a variety of applications. Web, mobile, some in the startup realm, some just as side projects, customers projects, partner applications, and the list goes on. Although if there is 1 […]

  • Building a Start-up in the SAP HANA space

    I have some fond memories of a television series from the BBC called “A Car is Born” a 15 episode show where the presenter, Mark Evans painstakingly builds a AC Cobra replica. The show highlighted his experiences, trials and tribulations of building something from the ground up. At TechEd 2014 in Las Vegas I gave […]

  • Git <> HANA – A free, open-source Github client for SAP HANA

    Over the last few months, working on the metric² open source project, I have been frequently updating the GitHub repo. As a heavy XS Web IDE user, this entailed exporting or copying the contents of the files from the package into my local GitHub repository for the project and subsequently committing the files from there. […]

  • metric² v2.0 release

    After releasing metric² at TechEd Las Vegas last year it has had well over a hundred downloads, and has a couple loyal followers always offering advice and feedback (which I am truly thankful for). Last week we released version 2.0 of the free and open source app and subsequently put it onto GitHub under the […]

  • Why Demo Jam ROCKS

    It was Tuesday night sometime back in 2009 at my first TechEd where I was sitting in the audience and really wishing I was standing up on stage, presenting something inspiring and innovative which would encourage the votes of the demanding audience of Demojam. Well, it took 4 years to creep over personal hurdles, family […]

  • SAP Notes Viewer for Mac

    Since I have been spending the last few weeks getting some Netweaver instances running on my new Hyper V server, I have spent a considerable amount of time on the SAP Notes website debugging and troubleshooting everything from installation to master guides. Since my SAP Note Viewer apps for iPhone and iPad are fairly popular […]

  • Quick View for SAP Notes (Windows)

    In my ever growing quest to provide quick and easy access to SAP Notes (which Dagfinn Parnas started a couple of years ago with the Android Note Viewer), I recently finished creating a windows version of a small app to make opening notes just a little easier. When deciding if I should get this done, […]

  • xSync – Making HANA XS development easier

    A couple of weeks ago, I started playing with HANA development after going through a couple of the opensap courses. One of my biggest surprises was that HANA Studio was windows only. As a Web/Mobile/App developer spending majority of my time on the Mac platform, having to get my Dell out was a walk down […]

  • zSCN – A iPad SCN Community Reader

    After spending a couple of months traveling in 2012, I wrote a personal app for reading and following content created on the SAP Community Network. Although it was slightly buggy and ghetto, I found it way faster than firing up my MBA to check if a comment or something helpful had been posted in my […]

  • TechEd 2012 and MOB 205

    Well …. TechEd has passed and it was a great time. InnoJam was probably the best experience and I managed to be a part of a great collaboration which was fun from the start – I will blog a little about our solution in some of my free time in the coming weeks, but back […]
