It’s the 10th Anniversary of Dreamforce this September, and it’s going to be incredible. Taking place in San Francisco, this is the annual conference for the Salesforce.com community worldwide and it’s not like any other IT conference. There are 6 of us going along from Desynit, and we are pretty excited.
If you have attended Cloudforce events in the past, you will know that all Salesforce.com conferences are slick productions, but Dreamforce is set to be completely off the scale. To put it into perspective, there are over 70k registered attendees so far. Over 750 expert-led sessions are planned, giving delegates hands-on access to new Salesforce.com features and technology. Among others, Sir Richard Branson and Gen. Colin Powell will be delivering key note speeches. And to top it all, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers are going to be playing.
In short it’s an amazing event, and we are very pleased indeed to have not one, but two speaker slots at the conference Developer Track. It’s a chance to share our ideas and experiences of building technology on the Salesforce.com platform with our community of peers.
Chris is going to be delivering a session entitled ‘Using Force.com to Automate Established Business Processes’, covering the art of successfully integrating and automating legacy systems with the Force.com platform.
Simon is going to be delivering a step by step how-to-guide on integrating PayPal MassPay with Salesforce.com in his presentation, ‘Installing, Integrating, and Testing PayPal and PayPal MassPay’.
You can find out more about Chris's and Simon's technical background at their respective developer blogs.
If you are lucky enough to be going to Dreamforce ’12 and would like to attend these sessions, just check the links again in a couple of weeks and hopefully we will have been assigned a time and date slot. We’d also love to hear about what you are doing to prepare for the trip. You can reach email us, or contact us via Desynit’s Facebook page.
Finally, for everyone out there who is not going to be in San Francisco this September, we are sorry to hear it, but we will be writing a daily diary from Dreamforce 2012, posting the links to the presentations and other relevant material in our blog and Facebook page, and tweeting from @desynit. Please give us a ‘Like’ or follow us on Twitter and you can stay in touch with our news and updates before, during and after the conference. But it’s still not too late to register, and if you go to our Facebook page, we have posted a code to save 20% on your Dreamforce registration.
