SAP Design Studio has changed and improved a lot over the past three years; arriving at version 1.6 last month. It was clear that our 2013 book Getting Started with SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio needed a big update, as it included only the features up until Design Studio version 1.1.
So the wait is almost over and in early 2016 the fully updated and extended version of the book will be available under the name SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio: The Comprehensive Guide (2nd edition). Make sure you create some room in your bookcase because with about 750 pages this book has gotten really fat. For this project I teamed up with my Interdobs colleagues and Design Studio specialists Jeroen van der A and Dwain Chang.
