TrailheaDX – Why You Should Attend The Real Salesforce ‘Developer’ Conference!

First things first, I’ve been attending & speaking at Dreamforce every year since 2012! And with each passing year, it keeps getting busier for me – I had a packed schedule for Dreamforce 2016 and fun presenting at Developer & Admin Theatres.

Apttus Accelerate 207 – The Ultimate Admin Royal Rumble

While I’ve had the good fortune of attending several Salesforce events and trainings over the last few years, I’ve always desired to learn more in the CPQ space – so when the invite to attend (and eventually speak at) Apttus Accelerate 2017 came calling, there was no way I could turn it down. While I originally planned to attend the conference and training to ramp up my CPQ skills, Apttus sweetened the deal for me by asking me to present at the ‘The Ultimate Admin Royal Rumble’ at the conference.

My Dreamforce 2016 Session Videos!

screen-shot-2016-10-26-at-1-34-11-pmAs I mentioned in my last post, this was probably my busiest Dreamforce ever! It also turned out to be my most memorable Dreamforce ever – for several reasons. Although it’s been a few months since then, I can happily recollect each of the conference days – my sessions at Developer Forest & Admin Meadow as well as my other engagements.

The videos for all sessions were posted shortly after the conference. You can find all Dreamforce 2016 videos here. Here are the links for the sessions I presented at Dreamforce last year.
