Check out this week’s Bloomberg Businessweek What is Code? issue, explaining what computer code is, and how pervasive it has become. Bloomberg says any young person starting out with a career needs to be able to at least read computer code. (Resistance is futile? We will be assimilated?). What about me? I can read the business enterprise software SAP’s proprietary ABAP language – sort of. I have made a career out of telling people what SAP can do, what its data structures look like, and how to configure its basic functions. I’ve mostly been the facilitator interpreting my clients’ business user requirements and telling the ABAP coders how to extend or adjust SAP’s prepackaged functions.
