An introductory workshop into creating applications on the force.com platform from MVP's Francis Pindar (@radnip) and Keir Bowden (@BobBuzzard). The workshop will cover creating an application on the force.com platform using the following techniques:
* Creating custom objects
* Creating & Managing custom fields and different field types.
* Basic page layouts
* Validation rules
* Creating an approval process
* Basic reporting on our custom objects
Unless we get time at the end this workshop will only focus on "click development" within force.com, so no coding experience is needed. But if we get time at the end we may take a look VisualForce/Apex, importing data or formula fields depending on what people prefer.

Finding the office in Tower42

Go to the far right and go through building security, your bag will be scanned and you pass through a metal detector.
Once through security, take the escalators immediately to your left - following the blue path. Walk all the way round to lifts and take the lift to the 24th floor.
At the 24th floor, get out of the lift and cross the hallway. Take the blue lifts to the 27th floor. Exiting the lift to your left you will find the Salesforce office.
