Our monthly recaps of the London Salesforce Developer Trailblazer Community events continue with a look back at August’s event, which was hosted and sponsored by brightgen.
For any new readers, the London Developer Trailblazer Community group meets regularly to take part in networking, sharing of experience and development practices, discussing new features, and giving each other feedback on developments with Salesforce technologies.
As proud sponsors of the official London Salesforce DUG YouTube channel, we’ll continue to provide these video highlights each month, but we must emphasise the events are well worth attending in person if you’re ever able to make it along.
So, let’s take a look at the sessions presented by our great speakers from August’s London Salesforce Developer User Group:
Muhammad Abrar Ul Haq
Technical Architect, Accenture
Change Data Capture (CDC)
Enterprise integrations require constant synchronisation across many systems but creating a pull-based mechanism quickly becomes impractical to manage. Change Data Capture (CDC) uses push technology to send data to the Salesforce event bus. Clients can then subscribe to events, making a more loosely coupled and manageable integration architecture. Come and join us to learn about this powerful feature that has use cases from data replication, real time data synchronisation, efficient data auditing and many more.
Our Lead Mobile Technical Architect Todd Halfpenny, who attended the event, said, “It was great to hear Abrar’s talk. He had previously run this at the Salesforce London World Tour, earlier this year, but I had sadly missed it. Change Data Capture is a fantastic addition to the tool-set that Salesforce developers can use.
Senior Consultant, PwC
Chatter: Behind the Scenes
Anyone having to deal with Chatter data migration or automation will know that Chatter data is not very straightforward. This talk will give you an overview of how Chatter data is structured, how to get it out of (and back into) Salesforce and how to utilise the ConnectAPI classes.
These London Salesforce Developer Trailblazer Community Group events thrive on engagement and participation. There’s something for everyone, and something new to learn every time. So, if you want to get involved, learn more, share experiences, or just come along to see what it’s all about, you will always be more than welcome.
