Attending Dreamforce '14

I had the good fortune of being able to attend Dreamforce '14, the Salesforce conference in San Francisco, and get an up-close look at their products, vendors and training. The size of the conference was so massive, it took over several blocks and was definitely felt throughout the city. Every day had something memorable and important. I can now brag that I attended events with Marc Benioff, Tony Robbins, The Beach Boys, Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, Bruno Mars,, and more. One of the common themes you can observe is commitment to the  platform: there were many big companies (such as Accenture and Deloitte) that had invested heavily to integrate with Salesforce, and this conference was a way to reinforce this momentum and keep it growing.
