    Hi,

    I voted against the term ABAPER.
    I’m a software developer, may I call myself a software craftsman? And I regard myself independent from the language I use, though in my job it’s ABAP ( currently, who knows what the future will bring? ).

    Regards,
    Dirk

    Using the term ABAP’er just doesn’t make sense.

  • I hate being called ABAPer,

    Just imagine if Java developers are called javer ,
    .neters , phpers etc …
