You've worked hard to become a Salesforce Administrator. You studied and aced the Salesforce Certified Administrator exam. You've built a solid understanding of your company's business processes, and gained unparalleled knowledge of the organizational structure and culture of said company. You've built excellent communication, motivational, and presentation skills because of your intense desire to be the voice of the user within your company. You're also pretty good at analytics and project managment. BUT are you the best admin you can be? No. Not even close. Why? Because the world of Salesforce changes every day. Not only are there upgrades and updates but every day someone discovers new and innovative ways to implement that technology.

So how do you become an even better Salesforce admin? Easy. You go to Dreamforce. The seminal cloud computing event of the year is the perfect place to learn everything you need to continue your progression as a Salesforce admin. Here's some things you can look forward to as a returning, or first-time, Dreamforce attendee:

The Admin Zone

A new addition the already extensive Dreamforce experience is a zone just for Salesforce admins. The Admin Zone is a sanctuary of tips and tricks, networking, demos, and expert Q&As. There will even be Apex workshops for those admins who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty in a big bucket of code. And the Admin Zone is located right next to the Developer Zone so prepare for some serious mingling.
