This year's lineup:

Lessons Learned: Building a Hybrid Remote App with Communities and Ionic
Roger Mitchell, Arkus

Implementing a custom mobile app built with Salesforce's Community Cloud as a backend is an amazing experience to engage customers and leverage the collaborative aspects of Chatter. In this session, we'll talk about a real-world, client use case using the hybrid remote pattern to deliver iOS and Android apps using Ionic, Visualforce, and Salesforce Mobile SDK. You'll also learn about tradeoffs for using the hybrid remote pattern when implementing with Salesforce as the backend without a middle layer (e.g. Heroku).

Managing Change With A Sensible Sandbox Architecture
Alex sutherland, CRM Science

With the new Lightning Editions of Salesforce, everyone now has plenty of sandboxes available to put together a robust change/release management process. Join us as we talk about how to maximize the use of your sandboxes, including refresh cycles, Sandbox templates, Change Set & Package flow between environments, Single Sign-on through Environment Hub, and how to do a successful Lightning Experience pilot in your sandbox architecture.

A Bug's Life: Apex Debugging Deep Dive
Bryan Leboff, Apirrio

We all write perfect code, but strangely bugs seem to find their way in anyways. To help the developer deal with this Salesforce provides many tools, from simple debug logs to code checkpoints. In this session you will get a walk through of a buggy code scenario for a hands-on experience of how you can use each of these tools in the course of your development to diagnose and fix issues in your Apex code.
