In August 2019, Cheryl attended Forcelandia, a community-led Salesforce conference in Portland, OR that focuses on technical development solutions. She has attended Forcelandia each year since it began in 2014, and has previously presented and run workshops at the event.

Cheryl attended sessions that reinforced best practices in planning of new features, technical design, and testing. HomeKeeper can continue to apply these best practices, as our app becomes more complex to serve a growing user base, and varied feature requests

Highlights from Forcelandia 2019:

  • In app development, training, and our daily work, think about how you can improve accessibility and promoteĀ #EqualityForAll
  • Salesforce continues to release features that allow System Administrators to automate complex processes more easily
  • The “Lightning Champions” program was created to improve users experience in transitioning to and building on Lightning. Their resources will also help HomeKeeper create exciting new features for our Lightning users.
  • Want to do more with your Salesforce? There’s an app for that! HomeKeeper caught up with Greg and Mary (pictured) from CapStorm, whose CopyStorm product was instrumental in our solution to create the HomeKeeper National Data Hub.

Attending local Salesforce conferences is a great way to learn and get inspired in a supportive environment. Local conferences also mean lower travel and attendance costs. With about 200 attendees in one building, this sold-out event was more approachable than Dreamforce (which hosted 170,000 attendees across San Francisco in 2018).

Are you a power user who would like to learn more about Salesforce to benefit your program?
