Are you dreaming of Dreamforce?

Dreamforce 2008 was a watershed event in my professional career. Look for more articles in the coming months with our session recommendations, and developing a game plan for this massive conference.

Four years ago, I took a job as a CRM Consultant at Groundwire Consulting, then known as ONE/Northwest, and thus began the process of learning all I could about the Salesforce.com platform.  I consumed scores of training videos and help documentation and worked with a variety of clients in the nonprofit space.  I got it, or so I thought... and then came Dreamforce and I realized what I knew was just the tip of the iceberg.

Dreamforce 2008 was a watershed event in my professional career. First and foremost, I discovered how much the Salesforce.com platform had to offer, and the sheer pace of innovation and investment.  I was heartened to find out how dedicated this multinational company is to corporate philanthropy and amazed by the nonprofit turnout. A little known fact is that Dreamforce is one of the largest nonprofit tech conferences in the country, with 2,000 nonprofit attendees among 46,000 total attendees expected this year.  

Dreamforce offers dozens of sessions geared specifically for nonprofits, and literally hundreds more for people looking to polish their admin skills, learn to code, of find out about the latest and greatest third party integrations. Three days are chock full of interesting keynotes, hands-on sessions, networking parties, and the feature band, the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
