RAD Women blazing the trail at TrailheaDX !

I wasn’t going to write a blog this week because I’m at TrailheaDX but since I’m still on Central time and woke up at 4 AM this morning, I figured I’d write up a quick blog about what I’m expecting TrailheaDX to be.  I have no idea what to expect but I suspect it will be great!

#1 How did I get here?

RAD!  RAD Women is a group of women with coaches, learners and graduates that are learning how to code together through a virtual curriculum.  The amazing thing is the coaches, curriculum writers and organizers are all volunteers teaching other women how to code.  Anyway, RAD Women let its recent graduates apply for free tickets to TrailheaDX.  I applied and now I get to come to the first ever TrailheaDX event!

#2 Ah!  The sessions and the learning!

I’m sitting here getting ready for TrailheaDX, mapping out my day and the sessions I would like to attend, let me tell you these are some difficult choices for sure.  Do I want to focus on Lightning? Process Builder? AI?  Apex?  Do you see the problem  I’m having here?  There’s too much learning to be done in such a short period of time.  Salesforce has set the content standard pretty high with this one!

#3 The Keynotes and Concert

If you’ve ever attended a Salesforce event you know that the Keynote speakers and musical guests are nothing to miss and Trailhead is no exception.  With keynote speakers like Steve Wozniak, Marc Benioff, Parker Harris and Shawna Wolverton; we’re sure to be amazed.  Oh but wait, we’re also hearing the great music of Lenny Kravitz tonight at a concert.

#4 Who am I hoping to meet

Through the RAD Women program, WIT and the Community I’ve met so many wonderful people virtually, I’m beyond excited to meet some of my virtual friends in person.  The list is huge…

#5 So far it’s more than I thought it would be!

So after flying in to San Francisco yesterday, I got to meet up with a few RAD Women at Parc55.  I absolutely love this group of women, they are all so supportive and encouraging.  I really feel like we’re on the same “learn how to code” team together.  Anyway if our impromptu pre-conference get together is any indication of how the next two days will be, things will be freakin’ awesome!!  Thank you RAD Women and Salesforce!  I’m so honored to be part of this group of smart, motivated, powerful and kind women!  Its rare to find a group of women that works together like this and I feel privileged to be part of it.

Next week Saasy5 will be about the top 5 reasons you HAVE to be at TrailheaDX next year.

No Pinterest board today, since I wasn’t expecting to post this week.
