The code consultations have got to be the most valuable and under-utilized session. (NOTE: You'll have to have a valid Dreamforce registration and login to use the session links above.) Essentially, you sign up for a half-hour one-on-one with a Salesforce expert; usually a senior level developer or Technical Architect (like myself) from Strategic Services (ie Salesforce's consulting division). Given what our hourly rate is, that half hour alone could cover your registration. I can't tell you how many people sign up and then cancel last minute. The people who have come with very specific, detailed, thought-out questions have sometimes walked away with fully coded solution. (Safe Harbor!) So, if you've hit the wall on some code or can't figure out some integration issue, sign up for a consultation today. Even you you can't pre-register, try swinging by the Developer Zone information desk and asking about cancellations. Odds are you can find a free chair. Maybe you'll even find me.
See you soon.
Addendum Sept 5 2012 6PM EST- Apparently the Red Hot Chili Peppers are not the only attraction as Dreamforce will host a free music festival the entire week! Check out the details here. Check out this cool video from The Limousines who will be playing Tues 18 at 6:15. Be there or … don't. I will, though.
