On Saturday, 15.02.2020, a rather rain-drenched stormy day in Melbourne, Australia, the SAP Inside Track #sitMEL – Full Day Event was held.

I was honored to get a speaker slot and the chance to talk about “Humane DB design and programming“.

Thanks a lot to Phil Cooley for doing such an outstanding job in organizing this community event!

The presentation session has been recorded and is available on YouTube:

For the code examples, I created a GitHub repository.

The main point of this presentation is to refactor SQL code towards understanding.

In the presentation, I walk through two examples of code refactoring:

1) “dataInEditPeriod”-function

I found this example in the SAP Community Platform forum and wrote about it before in my blog post SQL Refactoring Example.

2) “Customer Aging report/Account receivable report”

Another example from the SAP Community Platform Q&A forum.
A rather classic report of outstanding payments by customers over time-periods.
This example covers more different refactoring steps and highlights newly gained insights along the process.


Thanks again to the organizers and sponsors of the event and the fantastic audience.
