We are super excited to announce that Devtoberfest returns this year running from October 1st - 31st 2022. It's a celebration for SAP developers and an excellent way to get ready for SAP TechEd. If you weren't around for Devtoberfest in 2020 or 2021, here's a quick video overview of the event:
Or for those that prefer a text overview:
Devtoberfest is an attempt to capture the experience of the pre-conference events, like SAP InnoJam of years’ past. It’s an event which kicks off the SAP TechEd season. Devtoberfest takes some of the best aspects of the traditional hackathon type event, such as learning by building something, but opens the experience to the entire community and spreads across multiple weeks to better accommodate everyone’s busy schedules. It’s an event that is also designed for you to be able to participate asynchronously and on your own time schedule. As the idea formed, we’ve seen an opportunity here to really build something that is truly a festival for developers.
Devtoberfest from SAP – An open celebration of what makes us developers – Coding and Collaboration!
This Year's Event
The biggest overall change to Devtoberfest will be the new home for the event: the SAP Community Groups - where you find yourself right now. We've created a dedicated Community Group for Devtoberfest and all the individual events will be listed in the SAP Community Events.
This means no more registration on a third-party event site or having to manually link to your SAP Community account. You register for Devtoberfest by reviewing the legal terms and conditions and then just joining the Devtoberfest group.
Continuing with a similar overall approach as the last two years, this Devtoberfest will be caulk full of educational and enablement sessions, opportunities to get hands-on with new and evolving developer tools, and a wonderful way to get you ready for the upcoming SAP TechEd event.
The backbone of Devtoberfest remains the educational content sessions. Devtoberfest is still an event designed for asynchronous consumption. While we will release content every day of the month during Devtoberfest, it's all intended that you consume the content on your own schedule.
This is a celebration so the Fun Friday activities will return. We saw the greatest amount of participation last year in the activities that didn't require you to show up at a specific time, so we will expand those kinds of activities this year.
By popular demand, we will once again have a contest aspect to Devtoberfest.
