Commission Tracking: Automate Using Process Builder, Formulas and Workflows!
By Linda Johnson
Is your Sales Team asking for the ability to track their commissions in Salesforce? Do they want to see their potential earnings as they are working on a deal? Are you an admin and not a developer - Learn how we implemented Commission tracking through creation of a Custom Object, Process Builder and formulas.

Building Dynamic Packages
Alex Sutherland
How do you build AppExchange applications that dynamically support selectively-enabled Salesforce features such as Multi-Currency, State & Country Picklists, Person Accounts, Chatter, etc without requiring enablement of those features to install your package? In this session we'll discuss techniques and design patterns that enable flexible and resilient AppExchange applications, no matter what challenges the customer environment presents.

Anonymous Apex for Admins
Thomas Taylor
Anonymous Apex scripts allow Admins to query and manipulate data in place easily and can replace many cumbersome tasks that would otherwise require exporting, manipulation, and re-importing. From changing a field value across a whole set of records to "touching" a set of records to cause a workflow to fire, Anonymous Apex can save time and effort. Join us to learn where and how Anonymous Apex can be used, the basic structure of SOQL queries, key Apex language features, and walk through several use cases.

Process Builder: The Secret Serum for Salesforce Success
Christian Belko and Mike Beswick
Learn how to use Process Builder on the Salesforce Platform with a live demo of a basic process. In this session, you'll have a chance to learn best practices with setting up Process Builder, as well as learn best practices with it for your org's growth moving forward.
