Do you know who this guy is? I know that all developers are a little anti-social until they have had a little of the amber fluid to loosen up with but this picture is just a little silly.
So who is this SE80 guy? [Caption competition]Published Friday, 29 August 2008 ABAP , Development , SAP , Software 9 Comments
Fo those who are foreign to matters enterprisey and in particular matters SAP, this is a grab from the spash screen in the ABAP developers workbench. Resplendent in corporate # and # there Mr SE80 man sits in the corner of the airport departure lounge, alone.
I think this could be an opportunity to present to ABAPers collaborative development. This picture of “lone man coding” should be taken out the back and quietly shot. Every SAP project I have been involved in required a TEAM and this image could very easily be replaced with a shot of two guys working together (to get the job done?) in XP style or a code review or really anything but “SOLO MAN”.
Before we swing the “get rid of solo man” campaign into full steam, lets have a caption competition to see what he is thinking or saying.

I will buy the winner a beer next time we are at the same space time coordinates. No correspondance will be entered into etc.
Looking forward to see what you come up with.
