The soul author of AbapcadabrA, Wim Maasdam, has been refining his knowledge document since 1994. He's a freelance SAP consultant operating in The Netherlands, where his daily work is all about the topics on AbapcadabrA.

Wim Maasdam has been developing ABAP programs and covering SAP technical areas over a wide variety of projects since 1993. He started his SAP career with BSO (now Atos Origin) in the Netherlands, he worked in the UK for 4 years and he returned to the Netherlands in 2001. His major strength is the technical side of SAP, covering ABAP, Workflow (development as well as customizing), and IDOCs (development as well as customizing). But also more remotely related subjects such as LSMW (Legacy System Migration Workbench) for data migrations, SAP SRM developments including Internet Service and BSP applications as well as Workflow under SRM. As with many languages, Abap is an Object Oriented language and Wim is fully aware of OOPS capabilities and advantages. He has been developing his works in an Object Oriented fashion since 2011 (thus: all new developments are set up this way).

His development experience allows him to find and implement the best solutions to nearly any SAP R/3 related (technical) problem. He’s an expert in the full cycle of development phases, from user requirements, functional specifications, planning, technical specifications, development and development testing and documentation, through to user hand-over and maintenance. Object Oriented solutions, focus on reuse of coding, performance tuning and utilizing SAP enhancements are his specialties, along with development planning and mentoring/tutoring. His English is flawless and his personality allows him to easily fit in any environment. Wim is not just an ABAP developer, he is a senior technical SAP consultant.
