After 18 years, SAP is retiring the TechEd concept.

But developers need not despair – in its place will be the SAP d-code series of events.

According to SAP, d-code will be an evolution of TechEd to attract more external developers who are new to the SAP platform, as well as internal developers and the tradition SAP TechEd audience of IT managers and architects, developers, system and database administrators, and security and business intelligence professionals.

The d-code program will include new experiences for developers to get their hands on SAP technology, including meet-ups, hack days, CodeJams and InnoJams, and increased opportunities for SAP customers and partners to interact and communicate with internal SAP developers and product experts.

In 2014, SAP d-code events will be held in:

  • Shanghai, China – March 13-14
  • Las Vegas, USA – October 20-24
  • Berlin, Germany – November 11-13
  • Bangalore, India – Q4 (date TBA)

“SAP d-code builds on the great success of SAP TechEd and our internal developer kick-off meetings, and combines these into one unique, open event,” said Dr Vishal Sikka, member of the executive board of SAP AG, products and innovation.

“It is an opportunity for our customer and partner community to come together in an open atmosphere and share their findings and experiences, best practices and learnings with each other as well as our own developers. It is a learning event for us all and it will further cultivate our culture of software development and innovation. SAP d-code will further inspire us to move the world forward as it gets more and more reshaped by software.”
