So, I went to a Community-led event.
And I was totally blown away.
In the middle of March, I took the way-too-long plane trip from San Francisco to London to attend a Community-centric event all about Salesforce products and capabilities. This event is known as London's Calling (or on Twitter as #LDNsCall19).
#Throwback to @LDNsCall - did we see you there? 😃 Here are some visual highlights from the day. Spot your #TrailblazerCommunity buddies and tag them in the replies! 🙌🏻 #LDNScall19 pic.twitter.com/gcr9CCpuhw— Salesforce UK (@SalesforceUK) March 29, 2019
Boasting an agenda filled with seasoned, Salesforce experts and over 600 users, community members, and sponsors, London's Calling is currently the largest community-led event for Salesforce professionals in all of Europe! With an emphasis on knowledge sharing, plenty of Einstein Analytics sessions, and free food (duh), I was ecstatic to be in attendance. My teammates and I came together to build several sessions to help Community members better understand and use all of the amazing capabilities of Einstein Analytics Plus, and we were pleased to see so many others doing the same...and don't worry- you didn't miss all of the magic; all of the sessions at London's Calling were recorded! You can access the talks here.
But, with all of that said, I was hungry for more. I was eager to learn from the Community, hear their stories, and engage with users from around the world. So, in attempt to connect myself (and you) with Trailblazer around the globe, I'd love to share the experience and opportunities that Community-led events provide by giving you the Top 8 Community Events to Attend This Summer!
