Salesforce Lightning Week 2015!

About this event

Salesforce Lightning Week 2015!

Hosted by ContextMedia  

Join us on Thursday, March 12th for food, drinks, Salesforce swag, mini-hacks and prizes while we talk about Salesforce Lightning.  Doors open at 5pm, presentations begin at 5:30pm:

Lightning includes a number of exciting tools for developers, such as:

• Lightning Components 

The Lightning Component framework is a UI framework for developing dynamic web apps for mobile and desktop devices. It’s a modern framework for building single-page applications engineered for growth.

The framework supports partitioned multi-tier component development that bridges the client and server. It uses JavaScript on the client side and Apex on the server side.

In addition to building new, custom applications with Lightning Components, you can also use Lightning Component Extensions (Pilot) to replace and extend the default Salesforce1 Mobile App UI.

Presented by Cory Cowgill, Technical Architect at TWG. MVP. Cloud Computing Advocate.

• Lightning Process Builder

The Salesforce1 Lightning Process Builder is a new workflow tool that helps anyone in your company quickly and easily automate business processes such as employee on-boarding, and new customer on-boarding - all without writing a single line of code. Creating new processes through a point and click interface helps you avoid repetitive time-consuming tasks so you can do more and go faster.

• Create processes using a convenient visual layout and point-and-click efficiency

• Build your whole process in one place rather than using multiple workflow rules

• Work together in one UI with different business teams

Presented by Jonathan Baltz, Sr. Technical Consultant at Etherios. MVP. 

*During the meeting, we will also do a quick demo of both Lightning Connect and the Lightning App Builder.  

Food and drinks will be provided by our host, ContextMedia.

Bring your Laptop because there will be walkthroughs of both Lightning Components and Lightning Process Builder, as well as mini-hacks for all four Lightning tools.  Two prizes will be given out for those who finish the mini-hacks during the meeting.  

Even if you don't bring your laptop, a third prize will be raffled off for everybody in attendance.

(FYI:  Total value of the prizes is approximately $350, so we're not talking about coffee mugs and mouse pads.  Well, maybe REALLY good coffee mugs....)
