I’m here at day one of Dreamforce 2008, Salesforce.com’s annual conference. During Marc Benioff’s keynote they announced the new Force.com Sites technology for Salesforce hosted websites which can integrate with Salesforce data. At the end of the keynote Marc brought out Neil Young to talk about LincVolt, an open community for converting gasoline based cars to electric / compressed natural gas cars. It’s a very cool project but what I was really excited about was their use of Flex on the Force.com Sites powered LincVolt website. Here is a camera phone picture of the keynote (notice the sexy Flex chart at the bottom – which you can also see by going to the site).
Very cool stuff!
Walking around the expo floor I’m seeing a ton of Flex. I’m trying to get it all on video. So keep watching here for more details on what people are doing with Salesforce and Flex.
