Cloudforce Recap & CalendarAnything License Giveaway!

Events

Last Thursday at the Javits Center in NYC, Salesforce brought their “A” Game from San Francisco to our home turf — and knocked it out of the park. Cloudforce 2011 attracted more than 3000 attendees for a day of big announcements (Service Cloud 3!), a great partner expo, and lots of product sessions.

But many Americans I know tune in just as excitedly for the sideshow — the Super Bowl commercials. Even the buttoned-up Wall Street Journal live-blogged the best and worst tonight. And in case you hadn’t noticed all the buzz over at the official Salesforce Twitter this week, they did indeed score the premium before-and-after-halftime commercial spots to advertise their Chatter service featuring a collaboration with Will.i.Am the Black Eyed Peas.
