Hey, Guess what?
I was invited to speak at Dreamforce 2014!
The topic I was asked to talk about is using flows for the good of the admin, not just the end user.
It was an AMAZING time and I LOVED speaking to a packed house!
So, the presentation went very well, despite Murphy wandering around an trying his best to muck things up!
Here are some lessons I learned:
1) Prepare, Prepare, Prepare…On the day of my talk, I had literally given my speech over a dozen times to various sized crowds.
2) Have multiple ways of displaying your presentation. I should have had my presentation on thumb drive, dvd, vhs etc…
3) Take more videos! I used a video demo of the functionality, but tried to do a live demo of the build components, which failed. I should have used a video of that as well.
4) Be prepared to just move along (especially if your instinct is to just fix things!). See #3 above…I had trouble getting the web up on the big screen. My first instinct was to try and fix it, but I had to keep pace of presentation up, so I skipped it. Good call!
Overall, this was one of the coolest things I have done professionally! It was EXTREMELY gratifying to see that something I had identified as problematic was shared by LOADS of you!
I have posted files of the screen caps to linkedin, success.salesforce.com and the dreamforce site!
Enjoy, and let me know if there are any questions.
