Today's post is a quick one as I'm in the middle of coding and slowly but surely trying to move this blog away from Blogger and onto Ghost... all fun and games but hopefully it won't take too much longer.
As I alluded to in a previous post, Australia has a thriving Salesforce community and is also a hotbed of innovation, with some incredibly powerful and comprehensive apps being built for the Force.com platform by local ISV partners. I feel privileged to be a part of this community and have made more than a few friends within it, so I'm proud to say I'll be presenting along side some super smart people at OzForce.
What is OzForce?
I think this phrase from the OzForce website sums it up best, as an event which is:
Bringing together a collection of Australian cloud applicationsdeveloped on the Salesforce1 platform. A celebration of local innovation,thought leadership and community.
No less than eight local companies will be performing elevator pitches of their apps, followed by longer demonstrations in a break-out fashion with a dedicated room for each to go into more detail; my only complaint is that I won't be able to see the other demonstrations myself. I'm familiar with a few of the apps on show (we actually use Dashcord at S. P. Keasey) and would love to see all them in action. The companies taking part are sponsoring the event, so if you're a Salesforce.com customer, and you're around Sydney on the May 1st then please come along to learn about some amazing apps and have a chat over a drink or two.
There's more information available on the OzForce website which includes a registration form; be sure to register early to secure a spot!
