Dreamforce 15


Brace Yourselves - Dreamforce is Coming

Dreamforce 15 is now just over two weeks away (or has already taken place if you are reading this after September 18th 2015).

A Different Experience #1

This year Dreamforce will be a rather different experience - my company, BrightGen, has a booth (#45) in the Customer Success Zone where we’ll be showcasing our BrightMedia appcelerator for Media Ad Sales. This is the first time since 2010 that I’ve had to man a stand at Dreamforce, which means that I can’t hang out in the Dev Zone as much as I usually would.

A Different Experience #2

I’m speaking, but not in the Dev Zone. Instead I’m giving a more business focused talk on how we are using Lightning Components in the BrightMedia mobile front end - Mobilize Your Media Ad Sales with Lightning Components. This is a 9am start on Wednesday 16th and takes place in the San Francisco Marriott Marquis Hotel, Foothill E. While this is a business focused talk, I’ll be able happy to go into detail on the technical side either after the talk or at the booth. Hopefully I’ll see a few of my regular readers there.

A Different Experience #3

The Dev Zone this year is getting a hefty dose of Trailhead. I’ve had a hand in a Quick Start or two which will hopefully make the cut, so if you are working through those see if you can spot any written in my inimitable style. 

Some Things Don’t Change

The Developer Keynote starts at 10:30 on Thursday 17th in Moscone Centre West and there’s no way I’d miss it, so I’ll be leaving the booth to the tender mercies of the Sales team for the duration. I can’t wait to hear the announcements, although they’ll have to go some to top the performance of Trailhead from last year.
