After crossing the pond this past weekend, most of the Force.com team is now in London this week for the Dreamforce Europe 2008 conference. So apparently chicken tikka masala is the UK’s most popular restaurant dish as opposed to my personal British pub favorite, fish and chips – as a result, our first meal in town was at Masala Zone in Covent Garden where many of us met the newest member of our team, Jon Mountjoy, former editor-in-chief of BEA’s Dev2Dev online community. Unlike the rest of us Yanks, Jon lives in Edinburgh and will be able to provide better coverage for our EMEA community.
The Force.com evangelism team will be meeting with many developers at the Dreamforce event and also doing one-on-one meetings throughout the week with customers and partners in London. Drop us a line and let us know if you’re in town for Dreamforce and we’d be happy to make time this week to help you build your next great app! If not, stay tuned for the latest technical announcements coming out of Dreamforce – we’re excited by all the platform features that Force.com developers will soon be able to get their hands in the Spring ’08 production release and upcoming Summer ’08 feature preview!
