Salesforce Live UK and Ireland – Phil’s Salesforce Tip of the Week #455

Welcome to my Salesforce Tip of the Week #455


Tip 1 – Salesforce Live UK and Ireland

Salesforce Live UK and Ireland

Why not join your fellow Trailblazer Community on Wednesday 7th July for Salesforce Live: UK and Ireland? You’ll hear from industry leaders, learn about product innovation and best practices, as well as connect with peers in engaging networking sessions.

Highlights include the opening keynote, ‘Rethink the Possible: ‘In this inspiring, uplifting and insightful keynote, Zahra Bahrololoumi, EVP & CEO of Salesforce UKI will be joined by trailblazers and special guests, to discuss how they’re rethinking the possible for themselves and their organisations.’

If you are in UK or Ireland register here for Salesforce Live on July 7th. And keep an eye out for events in other regions and time zones.


Tip 2 – Not So Fastly

Many of us noticed the issues on Tuesday in accessing Salesforce related sites like AppExchange and Trailhead. Problems were also had with BBC, Spotify, Gihub, Reddit and many more. Most sites were back impressively within an hour. But as always these situations highlight how dependant we are on certain sites, and a reliable connection.

Fastly, the CDN, has offered a rundown of the event. “We experienced a global outage due to an undiscovered software bug that surfaced on June 8 when it was triggered by a valid customer configuration change” said Nick Rockwell, SVP of Engineering and Infrastructure. “We detected the disruption within one minute, then identified and isolated the cause, and disabled the configuration. Within 49 minutes, 95% of our network was operating as normal.”

Take a look here for some more details.

TrailheaDX 2020 – Phil’s Tip of the Week #404

As I know has been mentioned a few times, Salesforce have cancelled all in-person events this year and moved them to virtual. One of the big events is TrailheaDX 2020 which is happening next week. If you haven’t signed up yet, you can register here.

TrailheaDX 2020

The Developer event for Devs, Admins, and Architects…i’m already confused.There are nearly 100 sessions and circles of success ‘tables’, the most interesting to me seems to be True To The Core (TTTC). And you can submit questions to the panel of Parker Harris, Bret Taylor, Sarah Franklin, host Jenny Sacks, and a panel of product managers, at this link.

In other news…

Sealsforce (!?)

Yes that typo was on porpoise! Moving on from the bad jokes…Yesterday was ‘Salesforce Live EMEA’ which in some way replaces the European World Tour events this year. Obviously nowhere near as successful or significant, and nothing replaces an in-person event! You can relive some of the sessions here…although the live performance from Seal is not up (yet) so my guess is if you couldn’t hang around for him to finally start then you missed out ☹️
