I hope everyone had a chance to relax and enjoy some time away from the office over the holidays! Let's get the new year started with another Force.com Developer Group meetup. NetSmart has graciously offered their facilities for our meeting; we shouldn't be as cramped as we were at LePeep. We'll be giving away 3 licenses to Brain Engine, the new Visual Studio inspired Force.com IDE.
Thanks to everyone who voted on the poll. We had four main front runners: Batchable/Schedulable contexts, Bulkification, API, and Canvas. I'm going to put together a presentation on Batchable/Schedulable contexts and Bulkification because these are native force.com development topics. The API and Canvas deal with integrations using other languages and may be better suited to language or function-specific birds of a feather. If there is a strong interest in seeing .NET, Java, Ruby etc... integration or canvas samples - please let me know and we can try to organize a breakout for those who are interested.
As we discussed at our last session, this session is scheduled for late afternoon, running to end of workday. Beverages and snacks will be provided. If anyone else is interested in presenting, please let me know!
