Salesforce Lightning Week has begun! Salesforce1 Lightning provides a plethora of new functionality to the Salesforce platform, but in it’s simplest form you can think about it as the new generation of the Salesforce1 platform.
100+ Salesforce Developer, User, and Non-Profit groups across the globe will be meeting during Lightning Week to experience first hand the power of Salesforce1 Lightning. Join a group near you for demos, training, and to meet Salesforce experts. No matter your experience level you’ll learn new tools that you can start using right away.
Should I Attend?
Yes! It is just that simple. Everyone should attend. There are so many meetings being held around the world, hopefully there is one close enough to you to make it possible. If you are a developer, learning about Lightning is important because it is going to change the way you work with Salesforce. If you are an admin, learning about Lightning is important because it is going to change the way you work with Salesforce. If you are a consultant, learning about Lightning is important because it is going to change the way you work with Salesforce. See where I am going with this? Lightning is a huge set of functionality and topics and it doesn’t pertain to any specific “role”. Lightning is bringing developers, admins, and consultants closer than ever before.
There is still time! Choose from one of the many DUGs participating around the world, RSVP to the event, and join the rest of us! You will enjoy it! Share your experience with the world using the #lightningdevweek hashtag! If you live in the Lehigh Valley, PA area, please consider attending the LVSFDCDUG Meetup on March 12th at 6pm with me! Have fun!
Get a Head Start
Once you have RSVPed to an event, get a head start learning about Lightning using Trailhead. There is a fantastic Lightning hands-on tutorial now available on Trailhead. When you are done, try some other modules on areas you may not be 100% familiar with. Also, feel free to check out some of the great Lightning content being pushed to the Salesforce Developer blogs on a regular basis.
Have a fantastic Salesforce Lightning Week and be sure to share your experience online with others!
