TrailblazerDX 2024 for Salesforce Devops

TrailblazerDX 2024 for Salesforce Devops

Next week Salesforce welcomes developers to TrailblazerDX 2024 for a two-day event in San Francisco. Also known as TDX, this event is similar in look and feel to the annual Dreamforce conference. But TDX is generally a smaller, more intimate gathering where attendees get to mix with Salesforce employees, share experiences with fellow Trailblazers, and explore admin and developer-related topics.

This year there will be a big emphasis on the Einstein 1 AI platform at TDX. But in this post, I wanted to call out the Salesforce devops sessions and vendors. For those who need to zero in on Salesforce release management and managing application development, I hope this list makes your TDX experience a little more effective.
