Getting started with the Cloud Application Studio – New video series

In many smaller parts I will teach you how to build your first application and extend it step by step with more features. I will take you through a connected journey from the initial requirements to a full application.

I will keep updating this entry here and by time it should be a great source of information for all beginners. I will try to update it regularly and post regularly but I cannot yet promise you how fast I will be 🙂

A long time ago I posted many videos on how to develop with the Cloud Application Studio and I plan to create a whole new set for you which is up to date! Once I am finished this will also replace probably my old video collection.

Please note that I will focus on extending the SAP Sales Cloud and SAP Service Cloud in my examples.

Stay tuned for the first videos coming end of 2019 and more in Jan 2020 🙂
