Forcelandia: Salesforce Admin + Dev Leadership & Learning in the Pacific Northwest

Spanning will be there to help #backthatsaasup

If you’re a Salesforce Admin or Developer, you likely know their names. You may even follow them on Twitter. But if you live or work in the Pacific Northwest, you can learn directly from these Salesforce leaders at Forcelandia 17. You might even raise a local IPA together, after a thirsty day of learning. Or share a cup of coffee, courtesy of Spanning both days (aka #whyadminsdrink…coffee.) And you can learn a bit from me about why Salesforce leaders say you should #backthatsaasup!

It’s Never Too Late to Learn

If you’ve not registered for Forcelandia yet, there may be one or two seats left – hurry and grab them now! And even if it’s too late to grab that last seat, it’s never too late to learn something new. For example: did you know that Salesforce says to evaluate third-party backup – like Spanning Backup for Salesforce – to protect your data, metadata, and customizations? You can find what they say here – “we recommend that you use a partner backup solution that can be found on the Appexchange” – and you’ll find similar guidance in other parts of the Salesforce Knowledge Base, and on our blog about the Weekly Export.
