I recently presented at the Salesforce.com UK Enterprise Architecture Forum in London.

This is a relatively new forum, which meets quarterly and is open to all Salesforce.com customers with a presence in the UK. Although I work for a US based company, I do my best to remain connected with the local tech community.

The half-day meeting follows a standard pattern, with a keynote speaker, followed by updates from the Salesforce.com architecture team. The full agenda of the most recent forum can be found below:

  • Welcome and Introductions
  • Eli Lilly - App Cloud Developer Experience
  • Salesforce Roadmap Update
  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • Open Discussion

I was excited to be asked to share our App Cloud journey with the group, focused on Developer Experience. During the 45min presentation, I covered the following areas, including a couple of demos to keep things interesting.

  • App Cloud at Lilly
  • Application Architecture
  • Scrum Agile Process
  • Demand Process
  • App Cloud Continuous Integration / Delivery


The session went really well, with a high level of engagement from the audience, including a lot of great questions.

Unfortunately, I am unable to share the presentation materials publicly, however I have covered a lot of the content in my previous blog posts:

Thanks to all those who attended and I look forward to the next forum.
