Dreamforce is just around the corner. Jeff Grosse create a Jaiku channel for Dreamforce that sounds like it’ll be the easiest place to stay up to date on happenings. That feed consolidates a bunch of feeds (mine, Salesforcewatch, CRMFYI, Flickr stuff, Twitters, etc.) in one place. I will blog what I can, but will more likely be using Twitter during the show. After it’s all said and done, I hope to create a summary post like I did last year.
This year, my primary focus at the show is marketing Arrowpointe Maps. Arrowpointe Maps is an on-demand mapping platform that facilitates a conversation between Salesforce.com & MapQuest allowing for easy deployment of mapping capabilities in your organization and providing end-users a simple means for mapping their data. Arrowpointe Maps is configurable and can be tailored to your organization, so that your users can work with their information in a meaningful way.
MapQuest has invited me to participate in their booth and Arrowpointe Maps will be a showcase application for them at Dreamforce. I will be spending the majority of my time in the MapQuest booth. If you’d like to talk about Arrowpointe Maps, my Salesforce.com services, other Arrowpointe products, or just want to say hello, please stop by the MapQuest booth. That will be the easiest place to find me.
I am using OpSource to host Arrowpointe Maps and I will be spending an hour with them in their booth on Tuesday from 2 – 3pm. They are one of the 2 certified hosting partners for AppExchange apps.
I am speaking in the Developing on Salesforce Using PHP session. I will be going over the Web-to-Lead Spam solution I created that integrates with Akismet, a spam detection service. Nick Tran, the creator of the PHP Toolkit, and Mike Simonds, a PHP developer who recently created PHP replication scripts for Salesforce, will be speaking too. That session is on Tuesday at 3:45pm.
Please say hello if you see me walking around or stop by the MapQuest booth to find me more easily at the show. I look forward to meeting lots of you at the show!
