It’s that time of the year again – Dreamforce is around the corner and I’m preparing for my annual trip to San Francisco! I had a memorable Dreamforce 2018 and this year, it is shaping up to be another exciting event.
I am presenting as many as 3 sessions this year and helping out at a bunch of others. It’s been a lot of work over the last few weeks but it’s been all worth considering Dreamforce is a stage that has given me a lot of love over the last 8 years!
Last June, I wrote about why every Salesforce developer should consider attending TrailheaDX – the ‘real Salesforce developer conference’. As enthusiastic as I was, I could not attend this event last year and promised myself to make amends in year 2018!
Therefore, I signed up for TDX 2018 quiet early this year and I was fortunate to get involved across a number of sessions. If you are attending TrailheaDX 2018, I look forward to meeting you in one of my sessions next week.
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 .
