This will be my 5th year presenting at Dreamforce, and once again I’m excited about the content that I will be delivering. Come check out a session or two if you are interested in any of these topics, you can bookmark them prior to August 30th so that you have them ready to go when the Agenda Builder opens up.

Getting the data model right is critical for the performance, usability and maintainability of your Salesforce customizations and custom Force.com applications. As you have probably already experienced, the Force.com database is unlike any relational database you may have used in the past, and SOQL is definitely not SQL. Attend this session to learn why Force.com data modeling is important, how to resist the temptation to normalize the data model and instead apply patterns of denormalization, and what patterns and practices can be applied to balance the competing requirements of user experience, analytics, query performance, scalability and operations to design high-performing data models for Salesforce.
