Prior to SAP TechEd Las Vegas, Stanford computer science grad student Michael Fischer competed in a 24 hour hackathon at TechCrunch Disrupt, using HANA to build a consumer energy management app called the “Minty Green Energy Machine.” That success led him to a DemoJam Finalist spot at SAP TechEd Las Vegas.

Prior to the show (during Innojam), the JD-OD team caught up with Fischer to hear about how he used HANA for the first time and built an app with it during a 24 hour window. Dennis has integrated footage from Fischers’ DemoJam presentation into the final cut. Editor’s note: Fischer finished in 3rd place in the competition.
