Dreamforce 2015 + #Trailhead4All in Your Local Community

For my first blog, I want to thank everyone that made Dreamforce 2015 an amazing event + share a call to action for the Salesforce users to host community #Trailhead4All events, because the fun should never stop. =)

Dreamforce 2015 – Thank You to:

Trailhead in Your Community – Challenge

Many User Groups hosted the “Summer of Trailhead” event. At Dreamforce, thousands of attendees got to experience Trailhead in the Developer Zone. But does the fun have to come to a close? Absolutely not! I’m challenging the Salesforce community to host at least one Trailhead event at a nonprofit, school, or any community gathering and spread the Salesforce knowledge before Dreamforce 2016. You never know how this can change someone’s life. Maybe a teenager will pick tech as a career. Or maybe it will help a stay-at-home-mom reenter the workforce. Melissa VanDyke and I will be putting together a “Setting Up a Trailhead Event” guide. Will you take up the challenge and participate with me? Can we reach 50 #Trailhead4All events? Tweet me @AnnieForce or use the hashtag #trailhead4all if you do! Listed below or those who’ve accepted the challenge. If you want to help/sponsor them, I can put your name down too! I’ve got a few nonprofits I’d like to do this for: Big Brother Big Sister of Flint (Flint, MI) and the Teen Resource Center (NYC) to start. As for my Big Astro and Little Astro that I got at Dreamforce, two lucky youth will win them at future community Trailhead events.

  1. Thank you so much for putting forth this challenge! Our department is trying to learn Salesforce (we are in the midst of implementing) and I have encouraged them to use Trailhead as a training source.

      1. What would putting on an event entail? I’m pretty new to Salesforce. My only exposure has been in Trailhead and playing around in the Sandbox. My department is still in the beginning stages of working with a consultant to get requirements and start development.

  2. I would love to help out with the Vancouver event! Trailhead is such an amazing learning tool that everyone needs to know about and experience. Anything I can do to help…just let me know.
