Announcing Atlanta Salesforce.com Admin and Developer Meetup Group!

Yesterday I posted about asking Meetup.com to add a a category for Salesforce.com Professionals. I also signed up yesterday to be the organizer for the new Atlanta Salesforce.com Admin and Developer Meetup Group!

Unliked Salesforce.com-sponsored user group meetings, I’m envisioning the ability to get together with other Salesforce admins, API and AJAX developers, consultants, and local AppExchange vendors to discuss both technical aspects of Salesforce.com and relevant business concerns. And all of this without being hounded by ever-present Salesforce.com types.

So if you live in the Atlanta, Georgia area, are involved in the technical aspects of Salesforce.com especially as a developer, consultant, or AppExchange vendor, and would like to have meetings in a neutral environment where you are free to speak you mind, go sign up for the Atlanta Salesforce.com Admin and Developer Meetup Group! (unlike Saleforce.com itself, it’s free! ;-)

Start your own Salesforce.com Meetup!

Last week I got the bright(?!?) idea to ask Meetup.com to create a meetup category for Saleforce.com, which they did the very next day! (By the way, I’ve been very impressed with customer service, and if you read this blog you know I’m a demanding customer!)

Now we all know that the unparalleled hype machine they call Salesforce.com Marketing sponsors user groups and also puts on periodic dog-and-pony shows, but it really is hard to think with all those Salesforce.com folks hovering around. Frankly it feels a little bit like a cult if you ask me, but maybe they are all just happy they’re making so much (of our) money… ;-)

Anywho, if you would like to find and meet up with other Salesforce.com users, administrators, support people, API or AJAX developers, and/or AppExchange vendors on your own terms in your local area then this should appeal to you. If you’d like to discuss the problems you are having with Saleforce.com in a neutral environment without sitting through hours of PowerPoint slides that try to convince you it was actually Mark Benioff who parted the Red Sea, maybe a meetup group is right for you?  If you just simply want to be able to breath when you get together with other Salesforce.com professionals, mosey on over to the Salesforce.com page on Meetup.com and start a Salesforce.com Meetup group in your own local area.

I did.
