With this in mind, here are some session suggestions to help you get the most out of your DevOps Dreamin’ experience.
Panel: The New Era of Salesforce Development | Karen Fidelak
Wednesday, November 16 | 11:20am – 12:00pm

DevOps Evolution: Custom Script Craziness to Easy Buttons | Daniel Peter
Thursday, November 17 | 9:05am – 9:30am
Ten years ago, DevOps on Salesforce was really difficult and took a lot of engineering talent and creativity. Since then, products have matured and Salesforce has built out SFDX. While still not perfect, there is a night-and-day difference in Salesforce DevOps today versus ten years ago. Join Daniel for some fun stories which will add color to this evolutionary journey.
Zero to CI/CD in a Quarter | Meighan Brodkey
Wednesday, November 16 | 1:45pm – 2:15pm
How to go from chaos and no deployment docs or anyone knowing what’s being deployed beyond their own metadata or any other bad practice to smooth running CI/CD process with source control and code review under three months.
Blame is Lame: How to Create a Healthy DevOps Environment | Tracey Greene
Wednesday, November 16 | 10:50am – 11:20am
Blaming and punishing people when things go wrong impedes learning and poisons the organizational culture, leading to the hiding of issues until they escalate into catastrophic problems! In this session, Tracy Greene (Tracy/They/Captain) will share tips on creating a healthy DevOps environment that doesn’t focus on blame, but instead examines the reasons why processes were unable to prevent failures.
Whilst expert speakers will be around to share best practices, tips, tricks, and stories, there’s nothing quite like networking with others from companies looking to solve the same challenges as you.
Countless fruitful chats happen at events outside the main session tracks. Introduce yourself to other attendees, share your plans to attend on social media, and invite others to have a coffee with you. You’ll be amazed how much you can learn from each other and how much insight you have that will help others.
Make sure you register for this awesome event to take your DevOps knowledge to the next level. Don’t get left behind as the pace of innovation needed to be hyper-successful on the Salesforce platform continues to increase. DevOps Dreamin’ tickets can be purchased here, and all proceeds will be donated to the DEC’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
