Dreamforce is an event like no other. There’s no denying the energy in San Francisco when hundreds of thousands of Trailblazers gather together to learn new skills, catch up, engage, and accelerate their careers. In particular, #AwesomeAdmins from all over the world will come together to amp up their skills, connect with peers, and showcase their true “superpowers.”
Whether you plan to attend in person or join us online, here are a few recommendations to help all #AwesomeAdmins make the most out of the best four days of the year.
Jacob Lehrbaum, Vice President of Developer and Admin Relations, and Gillian Bruce, Senior Admin Evangelist, share all the learning and fun we have in store for Admins and Developers at Dreamforce '18. If you want a sneak peek at how to take your #AwesomeAdmin skills and career to the next level at Dreamforce, this is it.
We're invested in making sure that all #AwesomeAdmins get the most of Dreamforce '18 — and so is the community. Here are a few resources where you can find the latest Admin-specific information about the event, and connect with fellow attendees:

Dreamforce is a great time to find new Salesforce Admin mentors and friends. So, make a plan to strike up as many conversations as you can. Think of a couple questions that could be good conversation starters for when you're standing in line, waiting for sessions to start, or just wandering the Campground. To keep your community growing, connect with new people you meet on LinkedIn, Twitter, and the Trailblazer Community.
And if you'll be live-streaming Dreamforce this year, you can stay connected 24/7 via social media and the Trailblazer Community:
