10,000 Developers at Dreamforce
The Salesforce Platform community has grown to 800,000+ developers and 9 billion API calls, and because of that we tripled the Developer Zone at Dreamforce this year. We had 232 sessions with code, 50 unconference sessions led by developers just like you, 156 hack challenges with great prizes, and 1,000+ hands-on workshop lessons. If you missed the DevZone, you can catch up on the keynotes and sessions online.
