Code with Purpose Hackathon


In order to foster entrepreneurial spirit, SAP Next-Gen offers students the opportunity to participate in hackathons and other coding competitions. The goal is to introduce you to cutting-edge SAP technologies as well as to enhance your IT skills and innovative thinking. During our hackathons, you will get hands-on experience on SAP’s latest technologies and will get support from on-site SAP domain experts. Within a limited timeframe, you will collaborate and co-innovate with fellow students in small teams to develop solutions to real business cases.


The Code with Purpose program from SAP Next-Gen inspires the next generation developers to link their coding projects to social change supporting the 17 UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development. In collaboration with SAP’s vision to help the world and improve people’s lives, we stand for the higher purpose beyond economic success. The Code with Purpose Community invites the next generation development to make a positive global impact. At the coding event each team is planning and developing an app based on latest SAP Technology to contribute to a sustainable future. Let us jointly make some change happen!
