Dreamforce is the biggest and the most awesome event organized by Salesforce.
A lot happen at Dreamforce you learn, share your knowledge, and make connections, memories, and friends that you may cherish a lifetime. This may surprise you; this Dreamforce had the biggest number of attendees of all time, so I reached out to some of the lucky people who got the chance to attend this year’s Dreamforce about their experience.

Your experience at Dreamforce 2016?
Dreamforce Experience: 2016 was my 6th year to attend Dreamforce. This year was just like the first year I attended. I met some awesome people in real life that I have known through the community and Twitter for a while. 2016 in-person meetups included the likes of Atul Gupta; Vinay Chaturvedi; Monica; Lauren Touyet; Kevin Phelan & Laura Boggs from Allsalesforce.com, and a whole lot more. This year was just like every other Dreamforce I’ve attended in the past. I walked too much and slept too little. This year was just like every other Dreamforce I’ve attended in the past. I saw amazing speakers present great sessions & I was nearly overwhelmed by the massive crowd of people and by Peter Coffee (Video) as well. (Nearly…my first DF saw attendance about 30,000, which I thought was a lot. This year it was about 170,000, and to be honest, the crowd didn’t feel any bigger.) This year was just like most other years I attended in the past. I co-presented a session with Salesforce MVPs Kyla Longe and David Liu. It was titled “Building your Career and your Personal Brand with the Salesforce Ecosystem.” It was a great session with a lot of interaction from the crowd attending. It’s also where my funniest moment of Dreamforce took place.
Funniest moment of Dreamforce 2016?
Funniest Moment of Dreamforce 2016: As many people may recall, I went clean-shaven for Dreamforce. I had not been without a full beard since graduating high school, over 35 years! I wondered if people would recognize me. Most did, but when I was standing at the front of the room where I was to present my session, I saw someone in the audience, who I have known personally for about 5 years.I knew she was attending my session because she wanted to talk to me during Dreamforce, and meeting after my session seemed like a logical thing. She was looking around the room, looking right at me from time to time, as if I wasn’t even in the room. She totally did not recognize me! Once the session started, she got this silly grin on her face as she realized who I was. It was definitely good for a laugh with her after the session ended.
