On 26th March the London Salesforce Developer Group once again congregated at Make Positive’s offices just south of the River Thames for our monthly meetup. It was great to see a few new faces who had tried Salesforce at the Elevate London Workshop and had come back for more.
Over the last couple of months we’ve moved to themed events, where all talks relate to a specific topic. February’s theme was Salesforce1, and March built on the knowledge gained there and covered Mobile Access to APIs.
Laurent Delcambre of Tquila was on first, talking about extending Salesforce1 functionality through the analytics API to bring in reporting functionality.
Next Alessio Valentini, also of Tquila, gave a talk on developing a mobile application where the functionality lives on-device and all Salesforce data is accessed via APIs.
We had a great turnout again this month - the meetup really seems to have taken off this year.
Beer, pizza and networking filled the time before the talks, while beer and networking continued on later into the night, moving to a local hostelry once we’d emptied the Make Positive fridge.
If you are based in or around London, work with or are interested in Salesforce, and aren’t a member of this group you should join - just signup at http://www.meetup.com/LondonSalesforceDevelopers/
The next meetup takes place towards the end of April - I hope to see you there.
One more thing - we also have a new hashtag - #LonDevSFDC - search us on twitter for news and updates about the group.
