My Dreamforce 16 Sessions


[Updated with my session dates/times – 8/27/16]

Currently, on the Dreamforce Web site, until the Agenda Builder is available (estimated around the end of August), you can bookmark sessions of interest.

I am super excited to be a first time presenter at Dreamforce and even more fortunate to be presenting in three sessions – Admin and Developer tracks.

So, if you are attending Dreamforce, please join me in one of my sessions.

See you in San Francisco at Dreamforce 16!

Admin Track Breakout Session: Don’t Build Yet: How to Understand and Document Process in Salesforce GO.jpg
Session Date/Time: Wednesday, October 5, 4:30-5:10 PM PT, Moscone West, Room 2002

You’ve just received a request. You log into Salesforce and start making changes, right? WRONG! Put your business analyst hat on. Understanding and documenting the processes on paper is the first and most important step to take before you log into Salesforce to build a new process. This session teaches you to think like a developer and act like a business analyst by asking the right questions to document process, understanding the manual steps for the happy and exception flow(s), documenting them on paper, then building and using the information as a basis for testing.

Admin Track Theater Session: MVP Process Automation Showdown GO.jpg
Session Date/Time: Wednesday, October 5, 9:00-9:20 AM PT, Moscone West – Admin Meadow, Admin Theater

Join us as four Salesforce MVPs take to the stage, each with a quickfire demo of an unusual way to use Process Builder and/or Flow to solve a common use case – something you didn’t know you could do using point-and-click. Listen, learn, and vote for your winner!

I’m excited for this one and incredibly honored to be doing this session with fellow MVPs Rakesh Gupta, Chris Edwards and Michael Gill. It will be so much fun as we show off out process builder/flow skills with creative solutions. We will also have Shelly Erceg, product manager for Process Builder and Flow, emceeing out session.Super cool!

Developer Track Theater Session: Maximize Maintainability With Process Builder and Componentized Visual Workflow GO.jpg
Session Date/Time: Tuesday, October 4, 8:45-9:15 AM PT, Moscone West – Developer Forest, Developer Lightning Theater

Developers who have discovered the point-and-click power of Salesforce often find themselves looking for a more efficient, easily maintainable way to implement common business logic declaratively. Think outside the box and componentize Visual Workflow (VW) so that the same VW is called to handle common scenarios, thus eliminating the need to maintain several similar VWs. In this session you will learn the key elements required to componentize a VW so it can be re-used. You will also see a hands on example of how to set up processes in process builder to pass variables into a VW when automating the user administration task of permission set assignment.
