DF14 Memos: #6 - Developer highlights

My first Dreamforce has come to an end, the four day event was filled with excitement and high expectations.  Breakout sessions, keynotes, cloud expo, customer success showcase, and the parties, did DF14 deliver? For me it was 11 out of 10, it was more than just a platform; it gave me a true sense of community, a celebration of success, a celebration of innovation, and a feeling of home.

DF14 Memos: #3 - Will.i.am presents Puls Smart Wristband

By Kelly Carson

When I heard Will.i.am was presenting at Dreamforce, I had no idea what to expect. When I left the auditorium, I was absolutely mind blown. Will.i.am is the most inspirational, motivational influential, person I have ever had the pleasure of being in the same room as. The musical genius started out by walking us through his childhood and what is was like growing up in the projects. What it was like to have a Mum who whole heartedly believed in you and pushed you to be the best that you can be.

Fronde’s Liberation Story: The Business Operations Chapter

By Hannah Delaney

More than 50% of the typical finance professional’s time is focused on just being an effective manager of financial systems [1]. You would think that in an IT company this percentage would be a lot less, but in 2011 Fronde’s finance and operations systems were suffering a bad case of builder’s house syndrome. Our finance team was working overtime; fervently spending unnecessary hours consolidating business information from various systems, and deliberating over calculations from numerous excel spreadsheets.
