Skill up at Camp Design

Everyone is invited to Camp Design. Participate in activities that will explain the building blocks behind Einstein Copilot, a new generative AI-powered conversational assistant for every Salesforce application. 

While you’re there, influence the future of our user experience by giving feedback on prototypes of products including Salesforce Starter and Einstein Copilot. Your voice matters, so let’s co-create and embrace user research together.

Afterward, your design education continues on multiple stages at the AI conference of the year.
