One of the most amazing things that Salesforce offers developers is the community around the platform. We are so lucky that it’s really simple to get in touch with other people who also work daily with the platform, Apex, Visualforce and APIs.
Apart from blogs, StackExchange, Twitter and other channels, Salesforce encourages people to create Salesforce Developer Groups around the world and I had the chance to start the North Spain Salesforce Developer group in Bilbao a year ago. As I wrote in an older FinancialForce.com blog post entry, these groups basically help Salesforce developers get together and talk about their experiences with the platform, issues that we have found and how to fix them.
But some time ago, the group started thinking about going a step further. We wanted to show Salesforce to others. Unfortunately, the platform is not as well known in the north of Spain as in other places, so what could do about that?
The answer is Elevate. And that’s exactly what NTS and myself are organizing. On 26th of February, people will get the chance to learn a little bit more about the Salesforce platform. As this is the first Salesforce event in Bilbao, we will start with some basic presentations about the platform, the community, some company perspectives, like from us, FinancialForce.com, and, of course, a customer perspective from Deusto University.
If you are a developer, the rock and roll starts after that. Four amazing developers have prepared sessions to teach you how to work with Salesforce:
- We’ll start by creating an app with objects, fields, validation rules and workflows just by using point and click and yes, we promise no code at all, just #clicksnotcode.
- If you’re interested in knowing more about mobile apps, there’ll be a session about that too, including how to get your app on your tablet or smartphone.
- And if you really enjoy coding, you will also have a chance to get to know more about how to customize your app using Apex and Visualforce.
Still not convinced? Want a whole day of FREE training in Spanish? And what about if I tell you that we’ll be having raffles at the end of the day? We have books, pens and t-shirts, and, best of all, a smartwatch. Maybe you’ll come just because of the prizes, but I can assure you that you will enjoy the whole day talking to other developers and learning about Salesforce.February 26th, 2015 from 8:30 am to 5:45 pm Deusto University Engineering building, Turing room (#211) Unibertsitate Etorbidea, 24 48007 Bilbao Spain Don’t wait any longer, register!!
