Happy New Year, Developers! January doesn’t just usher in 2023, but also the Utah Release Season! If this happens to be your first time going through an upgrade season, you may be thinking to yourself, “what does that mean, exactly?” Allow me to explain! Bi-annually, when ServiceNow launches a new version of our Platform, a couple of critical events occur… ServiceNow will officially announce the Early Access (EA) release date - for Utah, EA will be February 2nd 2023.
*And yes, that title WAS meant to rhyme! * Before we all rush out the door to enjoy Thanksgiving, I wanted to put out a brief reminder. One of the benefits of moving App Engine Studio and App Engine Management Center to the ServiceNow store, is that it allows the product team to make upgrades agnostic of the standard 6-month cycle or patch updates. However, the downside is that there isn’t a lot of fanfare when this happens like for a release.
On July 26th 2022 - We here at ServiceNow kicked off the #BuildWithAES Challenge. We prompted the developer community to show us what they had build using the titular App Engine Studio (AES for short) and describe their experience with the product. App Engine Studio is ServiceNow’s development environment. It allows developers, with skill levels ranging from low to pro-code, to build, manage, and delegate the responsibilities of custom applications.
The San Diego release of ServiceNow heralded in the “single pane of glass” for developer admins - App Engine Management Center. With an entire release now under its belt, “AEMC” has seen some major improvements made for Tokyo, and we want to highlight them for you here today! Rather Listen or Watch Instead of Read? If blogs aren’t your jam, do not fret! For fans of Chuck Tomasi’s Break Point Podcast, he hosted Principle Inbound Product Manager, Brooks Hawkins, to discuss Tokyo’s App Engine Management Center in depth.
Since its debut in the Quebec release, ServiceNow’s App Engine Studio has grown significantly in scope and magnitude. Not only has it taken legacy capabilities and refined them, like the Table and Catalog Builders, but has continuously added new players to the game, like Templates and usage of the Instance Pipeline for deployment. As “AES” nears its 4th release, we wanted to highlight the updates and new features you can anticipate in the Tokyo version of ServiceNow!
Whether they attended in America, the Netherlands, or Australia, many newcomers walked away from Knowledge ‘22 impressed by the CreatorCon “belle of the ball:” App Engine Studio (AES). This new excitement was in large part due to all of YOU, the ServiceNow developer community, and how you opened up about all of the awesome things you have been building and doing faster than ever. (And AES isn’t even a year old yet!
