Developer Force is Salesforce.com's free developer program for the Force.com Platform. The Developer Force website, http://developer.force.com, is a free community-based online portal for developers, where developers can learn, access key resources, and discuss a diverse set of topics anchored around the Force.com platform.
As of December 2012, this group transitioned to a more community-driven, developer user group that will meet once per month in San Francisco. Developers are encouraged to suggest topics that they are interested in learning more about as we network and discover those who are willing to share their related experience with the group.
The goal is for all of us to become better developers, designers and architects by sharing our knowledge, expertise and experiences with each other.
