Upcoming Webinar on ABAP Enhancement Framework

Next Thursday, January 22nd, my colleague Oliver Mayer and myself will host a free webinar on the usage of the ABAP Enhancement Framework.  We will actually cover a little bit on the history of all the enhancement technologies in ABAP as well as talk about how the Enhancement Framework is used in the Business Suite Enhancement Packages.

More importantly, we will go beyond past demos and learning materials on the Enhancement Framework. In the past we have mostly seen the source code enhancements or maybe the class pre and post method enhancements.  In this session we also want to show you how to get the full power out of the Enhancement Framework for your own applications.  We will demonstrate how to implement kernel badis (with filters) and how to attach any enhancement to a switch.  We will also look at the process for creating switches, attaching them to business functions and how to activate and deactivate switches.

Talking Points

Napkin Sketch Engineering

In the first enterpriseGeeks podcast episode, we mentioned that we sketched up the show outline on a napkin at the Cheesecake Factory. We talked about how many of the best designs begin from napkin sketches. If you have any cool stories or pictures of some of your napkin ingenuity, submit it below in the comments or send an email to:

You may not make it to any great engineering hall of fame, but you will surely have a special place in our hearts as an honorary enterpriseGeek head aka eGhead.

Look what we can do…
