As a Salesforce Admin, you never stop learning. Between each year’s three releases you have a network of #AwesomeAdmin professionals who organize Salesforce Saturdays, Community Group gatherings, and amazing events to help you learn. And, there is no better time to embrace your commitment to learning than at Dreamforce! #AwesomeAdmins will have many, many ways to learn—in person and online. Read on to find out all the ways you can expand your knowledge!
Start your learning journey at the #AwesomeAdmin Keynote
Kick off your #DF18 week in true #AwesomeAdmin style by amping up your Admin superpowers at the #AwesomeAdmin keynote Day 1—September 25 at 11am PST! Hosted by co-founder, Parker Harris, the #AwesomeAdmin Keynote is packed with helpful information and live demos. We’ll show you the latest Winter ‘19 features in action – everything from Einstein to Lightning, Sales Cloud, Service Cloud and Community Cloud – so that you can walk away from this keynote armed with the knowledge and inspiration to power success at your company!
If you will be attending Dreamforce in-person, make sure you bookmark the keynote here. And if you’re going to follow along from home, catch the entire keynote as it is live-streamed on the Salesforce Admins Facebook page.
Choose your own learning adventure with the Admin Track
This year, the Admin Track has 125 theater and breakout sessions! 20-minute theater and 40-minute breakout sessions allow you to access the very best knowledge that your #AwesomeAdmin peers have to share. Expect to take in best practices, tips, and plenty of inspiration. And there’s something for everyone, no matter which topics you’re passionate about!
We have sessions for all levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced), across all features & topics: Lightning, Change Management & Adoption, Process Automation, Reports & Dashboards, Security, Data Quality, Einstein, Mobile, Einstein Analytics, Service Cloud, Community Cloud, Integration Cloud (including Mulesoft):
Note: This beautiful Lightning chart shows 106 sessions because we have space for repeated and fun sessions. We picked a total of 106 sessions from the Call for Proposals which was open June 15 – July 15. See more about how we picked in this post.
NEW! this year: While most of the Admin Track breakout sessions will be on the 2nd floor of Moscone West, we also have specific Admin breakout sessions paired with the amazing Hands-on-Workshops at the Hilton, as part of Trailhead Academy. Make sure you spend some time attending a workshop and then stay for more great sessions tailored specifically for you just down the hall.
To find these sessions, select “Roles” in the left navigation and check “Salesforce Administrator” to see all sessions tagged for Admins. If you can’t be there in person, join us online! Follow Salesforce Admins on Twitter and Facebook to get notified when we’re live streaming from the Admin Theater. Also, breakout sessions will be recorded and posted on admin.salesforce.com post-Dreamforce.
Non-stop action in the Admin Theater—Learn while having fun
The Admin Meadow, located in the Trailhead Zone, is the home base for Admins during Dreamforce. Join us to get your questions answered by on-site Salesforce experts, learn tips and tricks from fellow Admins, and generally nerd out about Salesforce.
Visit 8 demo stations that cover some of the most important topics for Admins like process automation, Lightning customization and reports and dashboards. Each station will be staffed by Admins like you who know their stuff and love to help others learn!
