We have a special night planned this month. We will have presos on SFDX, emerging technologies, and the generous folks from Metazoa will raffle off a an Apple Watch 4!
We'll kick off our night off with a Lightning Talk by Bill Kuehler on how he uses less tools and saves hours every week with SFDX.
Next, Vice President of Strategic Research, Peter Coffee will speak to the User Group on when "emerging" becomes "everyday". He'll bring his perspective of Salesforce Strategic Research to the question, "What happens when the 'emerging technologies' of the much-discussed 'fourth industrial revolution' stop enjoying the small scale and low expectations of laboratory demos and pilot projects: when they have to scale to production capacity, endure for enterprise application cycle times, and stand up to the scrutiny that comes with holding real people's data and changing (or even running) their lives?"
Lastly, the generous folks from Metazoa will do a demo of Snapshot, the leading tool for Salesforce org management. Snapshot provides highly visual tools to deploy metadata assets from a sandbox or Salesforce DX project to a production account. Over 40 comprehensive reports document every aspect of your Salesforce account: unused assets, complex relationships, disaster recovery, data security, and corporate compliance. A real lifesaver in for any Salesforce Admin!
