Silverline Supports Startups in New Orleans at NOEW 2015

New Orleans Entrepreneur Week (NOEW) is the annual business festival, produced by the Idea Village, down in the Big Easy. NOEW celebrates entrepreneurs, innovative thinking and the culture of New Orleans. This year I had the incredible opportunity of attending with the Silverline team. NOEW was a record-breaker…

Why You Should Join the Salesforce Girly Geeks


Geraldine Gray founded the Salesforce Girly Geeks in 2010 when she realized women needed a way to connect with each other at Dreamforce. Since then, over 30 Girly Geeks chapters have formed around the world. The groups have become a place to find career advice, job opportunities, Salesforce tips, and friendship throughout the year.

Want to Learn How to Build an Employee Community?


We here at Silverline are getting super excited for tomorrow’s Salesforce World Tour event, happening right here in our hometown of New York City. If you haven’t registered, yet – get on it!  The team is really looking forward to getting hands-on again with the new Wave analytics platform, checking out new apps in the Expo, and hanging out in the Dev Zone. If you’re there, please stop by and say hi to us in the booth. We can’t wait to unveil the new Lego creation we’ve got for you. To find out where you can hang with us, click here for our full schedule tomorrow.

One breakout session that’s getting a lot of buzz in our office this week is going to be with our own VP of Product Development, Scott Thomas. He’s been hard at work pushing out a cool new mobile release for CalendarAnything and tomorrow he’s going to show us how we can build an Employee Community in ten minutes leveraging Silverline’s WaterCooler app. I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely going to bring my stopwatch. Can’t wait to see what he’s got up his sleeve!

Here are the details:

Dreamforce 2014 Highlights by the Numbers


Dreamforce 2014 exceeded all of our expectations. This was Silverline’s 4th year sponsoring the conference and it’s safe to say this was the best one yet! We had so much fun demoing our solutions, sharing our expertise, and meeting the Salesforce Community. As we get ready for next week’s Salesforce World Tour NYC, we take a look back at the highlights from Dreamforce:

#LegoMarc's First Dreamforce


Today, we’re excited to bring to you a guest post from our favorite VIP at Dreamforce, #LegoMarc. This was his first Dreamforce, and he asked if he could share some of his favorite memories with you, so who are we to deny him that opportunity? Take it away, #LegoMarc.

I couldn’t wait for my first Dreamforce. For months leading up to the event, it’s all I could think about. I knew there was a lot to do to prepare, but I don’t think I could have ever anticipated how much fun I would have. Many thanks to my friends at Silverline for inviting me along and for making me feel so at home with the podium they built for me.
