Backing up Salesforce

About this event

Though every Salesforce developer should have the freedom to experiment and develop in their own sandbox, most developers are faced with choice of working in a sandbox shared by others or testing their work with a minimal amount of data.
The problem is not a lack of sandboxes since Salesforce provides dozens of developer sandboxes with each production instance. The problem is the cost of setting up a developer sandbox filled with data suitable for the problem at hand.

In our shop it is both inexpensive and quick to setup a developer sandbox populated with a rich set of data tailored specifically for our current project. This talk will describe and demonstrate how we routinely set up a new developer sandbox and populate it with thousands of records from dozens of tables (in a matter of minutes). If time permits, approaches for migrating and splitting Salesforce instances will also be discussed.

About the speaker:
Gregory Smith is the CTO of Capstorm and is happy delve deeply into most technology. If you are looking for a marketing or sales type, look elsewhere!
