Algoworks has been attending the epic Salesforce event, Dreamforce, since 2013. But this year’s Dreamforce was one of its kind. It was, hands down, the most insightful, interactive, and fun Salesforce event of all times.
Pratyush Kumar, Co-founder and Director of Algoworks, attended the behemothic event along with Prafull Kumar and Ravi Ullas. In Pratyush’s words, “Dreamforce has always been an inspiring and fun event for Algoworks. We are always excited to attend this behemothic event. Dreamforce is an exceptional way to connect with people who are as enthusiastic about Salesforce as you are. It was great connecting with the amazing Trailblazers and sharing our experiences with them around Salesforce! I’m already looking forward to the next Dreamforce event.”
