London SFDG May Meetup

Like our April meetup, the May event took place a couple of weeks early as once again we had a special guest - Salesforce Developer Evangelist Christophe Coenraets was in town and gave a talk on Angular, Ionic and Heroku Connect.  We also had a change of venue, as the event was kindly hosted by Appirio at their West End offices.

Some I found very interesting was that Christophe was running his presentation from Salesforce1 application using his Keypoint1 application:


After some slides on mobile application architecture, Christophe then live-built a simple Ionic application and walked us through how to integrate that presentation layer with AngularJS. Finally, he showed us Heroku Connect (this first time I’ve seen this, although I’ve read a lot about it) and a customer loyalty application built on all of these technologies.

After a break for beer and pizza, of which there was plenty:


Next we had Florien Hoehn, one of our meetup members, speak about the new Remote Objects functionality available in Developer Preview in the Spring 14 release of Salesforce.

The next meetup is will be announced on the London Salesforce Develoeprs Meetup Group - if you are a Salesforce developer based in or around London, make sure to sign up as a member.
