So I looked at my blog yesterday, and realised that somehow we're at the end of November already(!) and that during the blur that has constituted the last few weeks I missed a blog post. Those weeks were blurry because, as everybody in the ecosystem should know, Dreamforce happened, and it happened in a seriously BIG way. Here, in no particular order, are some of the highlights from my perspective.
This really was a sight to behold, with so much sharing and helping it was hard not to be impressed by the community that keeps on giving. The first thing I saw when I walked in was the ever inspiring @SteveMoForce, punching the air and shouting "Yes!", because he'd just figured out a tricky reporting problem for someone visiting the Genius Bar. Getting direct access to some of the most knowledgable community members was clearly a big draw for a lot of people and it was heart warming to see so many smiles. I'm sure the community zone will be even bigger and better next year, and Erica Kuhl, Matt Brown and co. deserve an immense amount of gratitude for this great new addition to Dreamforce.
Last year I was blown away by the size of the Developer Zone, and this year it just got bigger and better. There was some excellent content being presented, top quality staff on hand, innumerable excited developers, and even more hands-on training than last year. If you want to learn anything and everything about developing on the platform then this was the place to be, and if you weren't there you can still benefit from it as all (I think) of the presentations are available in two convenient playlists on YouTube: Developer Sessions and Architect Sessions.
