Hands-On Workshops with Reserved Seating


Our two-hour and four-hour hands-on workshops are instructor-led and include hands-on learning and applicable exercises. Two students share one laptop. The instructor may offer time for questions and open discussion at the end of the workshop. Advance sign-up is available to attendees through the Agenda Builder and is required for reserved seating.


Attendees may reserve seats for up to three hands-on workshops on a first-come, first-served basis.


Plan to sign up as early as possible to reserve a seat. Review the session details for any prerequisites to ensure you are fully qualified to attend.


Please note: Arrive at least five minutes before the scheduled session start time, as a reservation only guarantees a seat if you arrive on time. Once the session starts, open seats will be released to those waiting in line (first come, first served).


Attendees may attend any hands-on workshop with open seats, including audit seats, at the start of the workshop on a first-come, first-served basis. Audit seats allow you to observe a workshop from the back of the session room.


Design Thinking Sessions:

These interactive workshops use design thinking methodology to address a specific problem. They have a set number of seats, so please reserve your seat through the Agenda Builder to ensure you can attend.

Sessions with Open Seating


Seating for the following sessions is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Seats in these sessions cannot be reserved. However, you will be able to add them to your personal agenda approximately one month before the conference.

Road Map Sessions:

These sessions focus on specific product road maps that are covered at a high level in the lecture sessions.


SAP CodeJam (Mini-Editions):

Our mini-editions of SAP CodeJam give participants an opportunity to meet one-on-one with SAP development experts, connect with other developers, share knowledge, and have a little fun coding!


Code Review Sessions:

An opportunity for attendees to openly review and discuss real code, share knowledge, improve designs, and expand their capabilities. Participants work collaboratively to assess real code examples – provided by SAP employees and even attendees – and evaluate the good, the bad, and the ugly in an interactive environment.
