TrailblazerDX ’22—Skill up and connect

The best part of TrailblazerDX? It’s an opportunity for you to learn, connect, have fun, and give back. It’s the ability to have a quick hallway conversation after a session that was mind-blowingly awesome. It’s the laughter over a quick lunch with newfound friends. It’s the chance to ask speakers and Salesforce experts in person about a question that has you stumped.

Below is just a sneak peek of what TrailblazerDX ’22 has in store!

Learn: There will be 150+ technical sessions, product demos, expert-led workshops, and hands-on learning—perfect for whether you build with clicks, code, or both.
Connect: Product managers, experts, and Trailblazers will come together to share best practices, tips and tricks, and more.
Have Fun: Expect community gatherings, fun, and games, plus an epic party. Celebrate with fellow Trailblazers in person or, if you can’t make it, online at Salesforce+.
Give Back: You’ll even find volunteer opportunities, knowledge sharing, and mentorship. Leave the community a little better than you found it.
