My Favorite (Mostly Dreamforce) Articles This Week

Dreamforce, Dreamforce, Dreamforce… Can’t really think of anything else nowadays, as the tension rises. This is why this week’s list will focus mostly on the upcoming Salesforce-fest. But don’t worry, found a couple of other interesting topics worth mentioning.

The first article in line made its way to this list because, aside from the amusing backstory, it provides a rare glimpse at the inner-workings of the Salesforce Company.
