SAP offers new resource to developers

Launched today, the SAP Developer Network is a new technical community for advice, code swapping and articles.

SAP today announced the formal launch of a new developer network at its annual TechEd conference.

The SAP Developer Network (SDN),, will provide a place for members of the technical community to share insight and tips, officials at the conference said.

"Our job is to create an environment where we can foster a community and then turn it over to developers," Shai Agassi, an executive board member of SAP, said during a press webcast from Las Vegas.

The site will focus on SAP's NetWeaver, the very platform it is built upon, as well as SAP xApps, the Walldorf, Germany-based company's integration software. The more than 1 million developers who have obtained developer keys can access the site, which can serve as a hub for partners, consultants and systems administrators, in addition to developers sharing technical information. Advice, code samples and tools will be available, along with discussion boards, technical articles, evaluation systems and Web training.

The network will also tie into Online Service System (OSS), SAP's internal and external support system for its customer base, with a single sign-on function, Agassi said. Users must have the access requirements for OSS to use those functions.

SDN will also send information alerts to users who sign up for them.

The majority of content will be free, with a selection of premium content available to subscribers.
