The Extracurricular is a learning event for Salesforce developers and architects interested in advanced and interesting uses of Salesforce and other technologies. It is a community-built mini-event hosted inside TDX at Moscone West. Designed to be conversational, speakers will present real-world projects they have been involved in and be interviewed live by a panel of experts. There is a heavy Q&A portion so that attendees can develop a better understanding of what challenging problems were tackled and how they were solved by each speaker.
As part of the event we will be having people give quick and simple demos of "cool technology things". The topic is deliberately broad and vague. You'll have 5 minutes to demo something you've worked on or been involved with that you think other people would enjoy hearing about. No slides. Possible examples: show a clever snippet of code, or some slice of an app you're quite proud of, or a technical challenge you got stuck on and overcame. There will be no Q&A portion to these talks, just a quick demo and explanation and then done.
No slide decks, no Q&A, and only five minutes long. If you've thought about speaking and sharing code before but have been too nervous to try it, or never had time, we'd love to help you take that step forward and give it a shot! We'll coach you and help you feel comfortable. This is your moment.
We're looking forward to seeing what you have to share!
