Thames Valley Salesforce Developers - March Meetup

Salesforce User Group, Reading, United Kingdom
Wed, Mar 1, 2017, 6:15 PM (GMT)

About this event

At our January meetup quite a few people asked what it takes to create the next fantastic app and how to become a Salesforce ISV partner. We like delivering presentations that are interesting for our attendees (both developers and non-developers) and we asked Laura Kulikauskaite, a Salesforce Associate ISV Technical Evangelist to share her expertise with our group and answer your questions.

How to become a Salesforce ISV partner

You don’t have to be a veteran Salesforce user to become an ISV partner. All you need is an idea for the next killer app or Lightning component—we’ll help you bridge the gap between idea and marketplace. The ISV Partner Program gives you everything you need—including knowledge, tools, and infrastructure—to take your ideas to market. The talk will provide a Salesforce platform overview, technical requirements for ISV products and intro to our commercial models.

Laura Kulikauskaite 

joined Salesforce through the FutureForce programme in January 2016 as an Associate ISV Technical Evangelist. In her EMEA role, she manages the onboarding process of new ISV partners, technical relationship with existing partners and delivers on a number of initiatives to the wider ISV partner community. Laura has a Master's degree from LSE and a BA from Henley Business School.

This will also be the first anniversary of our group (we had our very first meetup in March 2016), so expect an extra presentation and a Birthday cake!
