Last week, I had the incredible opportunity to attend and speak at a Salesforce – MuleSoft Joint Community meetup, an event that brought together passionate professionals, dedicated developers, and eager learners under one roof. The energy in the room was palpable, and the spirit of collaboration and learning was infectious. As a speaker, I was both excited and humbled to share my insights with such an engaged audience.

In this blog post, I will share my first-hand experience and insights from this Meetup, shedding light on the remarkable advancements and inspiring moments that unfolded throughout the event.  So, Stay tuned….

The Salesforce MuleSoft Meetup:

This meetup was a Salesforce MuleSoft Joint Community In-Person Meetup organized by the Salesforce Marketing Group and Nagpur MuleSoft Meetup Group in partnership with Perficient India at Perficient GDC Nagpur Campus.

The event’s purpose is to “Demystify existing Salesforce and MuleSoft products with the assistance of industry expert speakers who have expertise in that specific product.”

So, Let’s get started…

There were 3 sessions at the event. And each was very informative. Let’s go through each briefly.

1. Power of Code Resources:

The opening session was about the “Power of Code Resources” in Marketing Cloud Salesforce. This session was presented by Jude Ruphus Britto, Sr. Technical Architect at Perficient.
