Destination Success was a wonderful success for me. I walked away with 2 brand new certifications and knowledge to get 2 more. What a whirlwind!
Every morning there was a wellness walk with 30 of my best Salesforce friends. The first day we walked to the old school Las Vegas sign.
I enjoyed getting some fresh air and the blood pumping in my legs. I met all kinds of Salesforce groupies, from newly certified admins to veteran developers working on their architect certs.
We donated school supplies to the Las Vegas School District. I had to make room for all the SalesforceUniversity swag I was collecting. And the swag was flowing! Certified t-shirts, pins for your backpack, tech cord holders, mugs, Astros and the most coveted swag of all: a light book.
I went zip-lining down Fremont street! It was cold and windy but I beat out Msgsquared, Misty Jones and Melissa Linenberger.
2 of my rockstar admins from the Study Certification Group got their advanced admin and app builder certifications. Congrats to Donald Bohrisch and Genise Christianson!
I also got to hang out with David Liu. He was handing out red SFDC99 shirts. We were super jazzed to wear them on
#internationalwomensday I’m not sure that is what David intended us to use them for, but we loved the support none the less.
His session on “The Transition from Salesforce Administrator to Developer” was so inspiring to hear from someone that has been through the process. David shared some great advice on navigating the trail from admin to developer and on to architect.
I can’t wait to finish up my consulting clouds and start on my path to developer.
Every night I scheduled networking dinners for 8. We dined at different restaurants in the hotel.
We always had a full table of Salesforce nerds. It was so nice to meet so many people interested in the same topic but different paths to get to where they are.
I met a lady who passed 5 certification while at Destination Success. I have to say I was blown away at her knowledge! All time rockstar Michael Drzewiecki walked away with his 13th and 14th certifications!
When it was finally time to go home we played one last round of Wheel of Fortune!
