There is currently 5 registered Salesforce Perth meeting groups. These community groups are run by local volunteers with the booking portal and swag provided by Salesforce. The community is commonly referred to as “the Ohana” and is a global support network.
The Perth Salesforce Developer Group has been the most active local group over the last couple of years. The exists to help people with their Salesforce careers, with a focus on using Trailhead badges at either Trailhead Tuesday or Superbadge Saturdays. The Trailhead Tuesday meetings were at Dôme Westralia Plaza in 2018. This transitioned to Salesforce Saturdays at Dôme at Scarborough Beach and then Osborne Park. The meetings also included a NFP Hackathon at HBF Stadium.
Trailhead is Salesforce’s gamified free online training. Sign up at https://trailhead.salesforce.com/
The Trailblazer Community helps everyone thrive in the Salesforce economy. Everyone is welcome to attend these meetings, regardless of their experience. The main rule is that there is no selling at the meetings. That can be done outside the meetups.
