Hi dear all:

I just stepped into Hana (without SAP experience) this week and to be honest, it's so huge a thing I believe, which made me lost in Hana, I know there are SAPUI5 for front-end development for Hana, but I do want to learn core Hana(in-memory computing) skills, could anyone see my post kindly leave some info and that would be highly appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Hi Michael,

    First you have to choose if you want to become a HANA Developer or HANA Admin/Technical Consultant

    You can first start by learning In Memory Concepts, for this you can see videos on OpenHPI:

    Course: In-Memory Data Management

    If you want to learn HANA and become a developer,

    After that learn about HANA Studio and get familiar with it, then learn how to load data - Data Provisioning Techniques

    After that you will have to learn Moceling and SQL - for creating different Information models

    Later you can learn XS Development - learns JavaScript, Odata, UI5

    or may be learn River - new language introduced by SAP

    You can get all the videos for learning from HANA Academy:

    SAP HANA Academy | SAP HANA

    If you want to start learning HANA, I would recommend you to read my blog once:

    Want to learn SAP HANA? Where to Start? Certification?

    Regarding HANA Learning materials have a look at my another blog:

    HANA Reference for Developers - Links and SAP Notes(Part-1) - Updated 04.12.2013
