Dreamforce has always been an event the Groundswell team looks forward to year after year. Apart from being a melting pot of people from all walks of Salesforce life, there’s never any shortage of knowledge and inspiration in the form of sessions, keynotes, and hands-on experiences. One of the more invaluable things we gain is inevitably the exposure to the absolute best, cutting-edge tools that cloud technology has to offer.

Dreamforce 2017 is undeniably one of the more, if not the most significant event for us, as 2017 marks several milestones for Groundswell Cloud Solutions as a whole. Apart from celebrating our 5th anniversary earlier this year and moving to a brand spanking new office, DF17 was the busiest we’ve ever been, having participated in the most number of sessions since we started attending the conference as a team. These gave us the opportunity to share our learnings on our favorite topics, drawn directly from real projects and experiences.
