ABAP Freakshow – February 5, 2010: ABAP UI Flexibility Part 6

This is part 6 of a 6 part series on User Interface flexibility in the ABAP environment. Part 6 of this series looks a bit to the future with the new Local Page Builder/CHIPs/Sidepanel functionality that is coming in NetWeaver 7.02. We see how reusable, generic UI functionality can easily be integrated into existing applications without coding.

Enterprise Geeks Theme Song

The Enterprise Geeks love gifts and free stuff, so this is a special shout out and thanks to fellow eGhead Matt Harding for putting together the Enterprise Geeks theme song. You can check out some of Matt’s other music on his MySpace page. The music for the eGeeks theme song was taken from his original track “Damn Ugly”, which is pretty Damn Funny.

Some other eGheads such as Thomas Jung, Gregor Wolf, and Graham Robinson have already mentioned using this as intro music for their sessions at various tech events. Now these are eGheads with style!

Cheers to you, Mr. Harding!
