Next week I celebrate three years with Salesforce. It's been a lot of fun. I've travelled the world, met lots of nice people and seen hundreds of great apps. I've taught developers how to succeed on the AppExchange and even let you control my model trains. But there's one thing I have never been able to do -- until today.
I've never written an article like this before. Ever. This is unique and exciting and I couldn't be happier to do it. And what makes it even better is that its about improving one of the most popular Force.com Labs apps of all time.
Yesterday, I introduced you to the Grand Prize winner in the Salesforce Labs Salesforce of Things event, Printer + Salesforce + Arduino = Like. As great as that app is, I have a prediction: you will fall in love with this next video. Why? Read on!! The Social Fleet, from Dan Kauppi, Sergei Dubinin and […]

It's been a little while since I posted so you might be wondering, "What's up with Labs updates?" Well, wonder no more!
If you attended the Dive In: Join or Start an Open Source Community session at Dreamforce, you are well aware that Milestones PM, one of our most successful Force.com Labs apps to date, is open source. You and your developer friends can head straight over to our GitHub account, ForceDotComLabs, and get the code, check out the issues list and, today, for the first time, check out our fancy new Version History.
Dreamforce is here. Wow. That was fast! If you're a fan of Force.com Labs, I'd love to meet you. In fact, I've set up two dedicated times.
There are many ways to participate in open source projects, and many do not require you to code. In fact, where we could use the most help, identifying and verifying bugs, is a non-code issue. So is adding ideas.
