The time is drawing near for legions of Salesforce developers to descend on the city of San Francisco for Dreamforce 2014. And since the community of Salesforce developers has swelled to close to 2 million Salesforce knows that just any old conference won't cut it. That's why Dreamforce 2014 is packed to the brim with goodies that cater to everything a Salesforce developer could possibly hope for, including the following:

  1. A bigtime keynote like this one:

  2. A Developer Zone that allows developers first-hand glimpses of all the latest offerings from Salesforce. This year there will be more ISV involvement, more to learn about wearable tech, and an aptly named "Demo-palooza" complete with MC. 

  3. Workshops will let developers get hands on training in a collaborative atmosphere. Workshops will center around codeless App Building, exposing admins to coding with Apex and Visualforce, helping developers on other platforms become familiar with Salesforce, and expanding existing developers' knowledge of Salesforce stalwarts like, Heroku, and ExactTarget. 

  4. Over 250 dedicated sessions where developers can pose tough questions about anything Salesforce and get expert answers in an intimate setting. 

  5. Crossover with Admin Zone. As the line between developers and admins continues to blur, Dreamforce has placed both zones adjacent to each to encourage as much overlap as possible.
