If feels as if yesterday that I wrote about my Dreamforce 2016 sessions. Hard to believe that more than a year has passed by in a flash and as I write this, most Salesforce enthusiasts all over the globe are packing their bags to make the trip to San Francisco! Although I attend a lot of conferences, Dreamforce holds a special place in my heart and I’m happy that this love story will be continuing for another year.
Like last year, it’s going to a busy week ahead! Last year, I promised to myself to be more organised and better prepared for Dreamforce but the way things have turned out, I think I need to stop making promises. Here’s my tentative schedule for DF’17 this year and I hope to see you/ bump into you at some of my sessions/ engagements.
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. I’m proud of that track record, and I relish and look forward to this annual extravaganza each year, yet I’m still a developer at heart who loves getting his hands dirty and yearns for more technical & hands-on sessions.
While Dreamforce has it’s share of beginner, intermediate & advanced developer sessions, the audience is a mix of developers, admins, business users, CXOs and lots more. In that sense, Dreamforce is NOT a pure developer conference. In that sense, I’ve alway felt a void in the Salesforce event ecosystem and it’s no surprise that a couple of years back, I compared my experiences at Dreamforce vs. WWDC .
