Customer Company Tour Highlights

The ROD team had a great day at the Customer Company Tour last Thursday, meeting up with many familiar faces and making a few new acquaintances along the way.

If the name did not give it away, then to reiterate, this years’ Salesforce.com tour saw us deviate from an emphasis on consulting. Instead, it focused on products and mobile business apps, in an event that was clearly aimed at businesses, and for business of all sizes.

Salesforce.com’s COO, George Hu, kicked off the event with a great keynote speech. Plus there were breakout sessions galore, enough to tickled even the seasoned ‘taste buds’.

ROD’s Director, Theresa Durrant, popped along to a few of the sessions, taking in a great demo by Quinto Wall, about how salesforce is leveraging the power of mobile business apps, by making them more accessible to businesses, and faster.

Plus, the ‘Introduction to Visual Force Pages’, was a great hands-on experience for those wanting to find out more. And, if you missed out on these, then you could always collect your three free Apex and force.com workbooks.

The Developer Theater also proved popular, with plenty of useful tips, tricks about best practice guidance…if you were lucky enough to get a seat, or at least a good standing room only spot, that is. Let’s not forget the mini hacker hubs, which were heaving, throughout the day.

The sensory Tunnel for the guide dogs, proved the biggest hit of the day, as we frequently witnessed people being led around the venue, blindfolded. Hopefully, our four legged friends, were rewarded with a juicy bone for all their efforts.
