Scalable Salesforce Integrations on a Shoestring Budget – Recorded video available!

I’m happy to share that Salesforce published the recording of my first Dreamforce session (luckily just slides and voice 🙂 )!

If you missed it or if you want to re-listen some parts, you can watch it below:

Follow the how-to guide and create your own!

Follow the step-by-step guide on this blog and download the slides in PDF.

I hope the presentation will help others to explore affordable pay-per-transaction solutions and consequently to save money on IT infrastructure and get a better ROI on Salesforce licenses by using included features.

It has been quite stressful as a first-timer but I’m nevertheless very happy with the overall experience and the positive feedback I received.

It definitely felt better thanks to the preparation support from Salesforce, some friendly faces in the audience and the fact that I was not alone on stage 🙂

I’m looking forward to get your feedback!

An Insider View of the Salesforce Architecture – YouTube

I saw this video for the first time a couple of years ago but I like to re-watch it from time to time because it’s so full of useful information about how Salesforce works under the hood.

In my humble opinion, it’s a must-see for any Salesforce Architect on the #JourneyToCTA.

Ian Varley’s blog series on Medium is also a great source of information:

My first Dreamforce session: Scalable Salesforce Integrations on a Shoestring Budget

This year I will attend my second Dreamforce, in San Francisco, and it will be my first time as a speaker.

Not sure how to describe my current feelings about that… it is a mix of excitement, honor and scare.
I usually lead the Lausanne, Switzerland user group so it’s not my first presentation but talking in a huge conference like Dreamforce is quite a big step.

The reasons behind my session

For the first time this year there will be an Architect Track with dedicated presentations. Since I am on my #JourneyToCTA, I thought it would be good to share a real-life scenario. It might not be the most elegant and orthodox solution but it works, it scales automatically, it’s cheap and low-code…
Not every company can afford a full-fledged ESB, so I propose an alternative solution that other architects can adapt to their needs.

Some detail about the session

The session name is “Scalable Salesforce Integrations on a Shoestring Budget” and, as the name suggests, it’s about low-cost integrations.
I will show how to combine Salesforce features, AWS server-less products and some free open source tool to implement them.
You can find the abstract, bookmark the session and send your comments here.

There will be a live demo but not enough time to go through all details, so I will publish on this blog the slides and a step-by-step guide to reproduce the demo scenario.

Dry Run in Geneva, Switzerland – November, 12th 2019

If you live near Geneva and cannot attend at Dreamforce, there will be a dry run of this session on November 12th.
RSVP on the Geneva Developers group page.

Step-by-step guide

At last, I finished my step-by-step tutorial on how to implement the integration that I showed during my live demo! Time to prepare my luggage for Dreamforce ’19!
