Introduction to workshop

An introductory workshop into creating applications on the platform from MVP Keir Bowden (@BobBuzzard). The workshop will cover creating an application on the platform using the following techniques:

* Creating custom objects
* Creating & Managing custom fields and different field types.
* Basic page layouts
* Validation rules
* Creating an approval process
* Basic reporting on our custom objects

Unless we get time at the end this workshop will only focus on "click development" within, so no coding experience is needed.



Please bring a laptop with you to this event.


6pm - find the Salesforce office on 27th floor 
6.30pm - workshop starts


Before the event

Please register for a free developer account on before the event - you will use this account to start building your application.  If you get chance, have a look around at the kind of content available on that site to help you create applications.


Important: Access details

Please ensure your full name is used when registering as this is needed by building security to let you in.

Finding the office in Tower42

As you enter Tower42, take the escalators to the building reception.  Upon giving your name you will receive a visitor pass for the building.

Go to the far right and go through building security, your bag will be scanned and you pass through a metal detector.

Once through security, take the escalators immediately to your left - following the blue path.  Walk all the way round to lifts and take the lift to the 24th floor.

At the 24th floor, get out of the lift and cross the hallway.  Take the blue lifts to the 27th floor.  Exiting the lift to your left you will find the Salesforce office.
