David Smith - Integrate Salesforce with External Systems Without Code

It's easier than you think to integrate Salesforce with external systems, you don't need to be a coder. David will go through a basic example of creating proposals in Google Docs straight from Salesforce, and help you to use that as a starting point to build your own integrations using declarative tools. Yes....DECLARATIVE TOOLS!

David Smith is a Salesforce Solution Architect at GravityLab with over 10 years in the ecosystem. He is a co-leader of the Auckland Salesforce Developer group. He works with lots of different customers to build out robust and comprehensive integrations, with a declarative first approach. David is looking forward to opening up options for us in the Wellington community, especially for the many of us who aren't developers, to be able to build your own integrations, and learn more about how these systems interact along the way.

This meeting will be run virtually even though we are no longer in lockdown in New Zealand! All of our extended Salesforce Ohana worldwide are welcome to attend this meeting, but please only register if you genuinely plan to attend, to allow as many as possible to attend!

**Please update your RSVP if you will not be attending**


Trailhead Academy have just announced a platform developer 1 bootcamp!

Remember the admin bootcamp - that was so popular with our #SFWelly Ohana? Now there's a developer version...

Register by July 31 and pay $199 USD instead of $900 USD, which includes a PD1 certification voucher, usually $200 USD.

Trailhead Virtual Bootcamp for Platform Developer I is a blended, prescriptive, expert-led training program that gives you a 6 week plan to learn what you need to become a Salesforce Certified Platform Developer I.

Twice a week, you will have the opportunity to tune in and review each week’s learning with your instructor and the chance for Q&A with fellow students. The instructor sessions (30-minute Q&A on Wednesdays and 90-minute review on Fridays) start at the same time every week (but note this might mean Thursday and Saturday NZT). If you register for a program that lists a scheduled start time of 4:00 p.m., all instructor sessions for the 6-week program will start at 4:00 p.m.
