So...what I do at SAP Labs?

I'm sure this a question a lot of people is asking...what I do at SAP Labs? Well...first things first...I don't do ABAP anymore...that's right...I only use it when I have to, but it's the same thing with other technologies I have to play with.

My team is called "Technology Innovation and Developer Experience"...

One of my roles inside my team, is to help building both internal and external tools, so I can actually choose my weapon and start developing...so far I have used Python, Flex, PHP, WebDynpro ABAP and R.

Another of my roles is to blog about new SAP technologies, meaning that I have to blog about SAP HANA, SUP, Gateway, JPASS, SAPUI5, etc.

But...not everything is coding for me...not at all...my other roles include InnoJam management and support, blogging and support at SAP events (Run Better, DKOM, TechEd, Sapphire) and a couple of secret ones that I can't share -:)

So basically, my job is all about Research and Development and engaging developer with the coolest and latest SAP technologies -;)

Where do I sign up for one of those jobs (without all of the coding). :)

Sounds like a pretty cool job, and right up your alley. Glad to hear it is going well.

I'm just a lucky guy with an awesome job -;) I still need to code, but not all the time...it's a good balance for sure.

And believe or not...sometimes I can be more stressful than consulting, but a more lovely stress -:)

Dear Blag, This is one pretty interesting post as the title suggests {-; Time I spend for experiments is really less, considering the fact I work for consulting biz. Finding the 'balance' is all that matters. Run more Awesome!

Thanks Arun -:)

That's true...when I was in consulting, I needed to find any little spot to make my own stuff...but I guess it's more rewarding -:)
