One day down, but still a very full agenda to go. What are some highlights moving into the second day of Dreamforce 2012 and the developer experience at the DevZone?
Dreamforce would not be complete without a word from Marc Benioff. Developers will want to be there on hand to hear from the big man himself about some the evolution of the platform this year – especially the Touch Platform and the ability it brings to developer cross-platform, cross-device applications deeply integrated with the Salesforce Platform. Special guest star will be the new Salesforce Touch Platform Guide which leads developers down the path of creating these modern mobile-friendly applications.
If you can’t make it into the keynote physically, you can always watch it streaming live at salesforce.com/live.
The Workshop Twitter Winners
A special prize awaits those who have been following along the mini-workshop material and the corresponding Twitter contest embedded within. Check out Wednesday’s winners, or better yet … the mini-workshop itself to get a chance to be one of them.
The Stadium Continues
Tuesday saw Touch Stadium drawing big crowds as a wide variety of technologies shone on the new stage. Wednesday will continue the challenges, and even present a battle between building applications using iOS Native, Sencha, and Appcelerator. I’ll be there first hand defending the iOS crown, but as I caught up with fellow combatant Ted Patrick of Sencha — I noted a particularly hungry look in his eyes as he confirmed he wouldn’t miss it. Be sure you don’t miss the battle of the frameworks at the Touch Stadium at 2:30PM.
