With less than 72 hours left before Dreamforce ’07 begins on Sunday, I wanted to let you know about the amazing lineup of salesforce.com platform evangelists, product managers and R&D gurus that will be speaking at Dreamforce this year. Whether you are new to the platform or a seasoned Apex programmer, you’ll get unprecedented access to them through the sessions they’re leading, tech talks in the Developer Lounge and at various networking functions through the conference (you’ll even have a chance to lobby for your favorite new features). In addition to the salesforce.com folks, we’ll have entire teams from Google and Adobe coming to talk about their latest technologies and how to use them with the Salesforce platform.

Here’s a snapshot of the salesforce.com session leader/speaker lineup for Developers@Dreamforce:

If you happen to miss a session but wanted to meet the session leader/speaker, chances are they’ll be hanging out at the Developer Lounge – come by, say hello to the ADN team and ask for a product manager or evangelist by name. More than likely, they’re in the Lounge!

Hope to see you all at Dreamforce!
