Happy Birthday Salesforce Belgium User Group and a Happy New Year!

Yes it’s the end of a fantastic year for the Salesforce Belgium User Group and the beginning of a fruitful new one!

It’s our birthday as the Belgium User Group had it’s first meeting in december 2014 and as some may recall, it was in a bar and we were 6 for the first time ???? 


Salesforce Belgium User Group Anniversary


After learning to know eachother and discussing what people expected from the group it took a while for the next meeting to take place, but what a meeting it was in March… “Lightning Week”!


Hosted at Absi and presented by Samuel “Mr. Lightning” De Rycke and special guest Stéphane Maurin.


Do you know why we call him Mr. Lightning?


First of all because he hosted Lightning Developer week. Second because he gave the lightning session at the World Tour Amsterdam and lastly because even Salesforce prints his nametag as “Lightning” at Dreamforce2You.


Probably a mistake but hey why not…he is knowledgeable on the topic ????



And our group expanded from 6 to a whopping 20 attending members!

In May we had the “Peparing for summer release and Admin Tips & Tricks” session hosted at 4CConsulting.

In June we had the “Summer of Trailhead” session which was a mashup between getting to start using Trailhead and Visual Workflow. Hosted at van Gansewinkel and presented by myself.

and goodies of course!

August 26th was a night to remember! The user group came together at night from midnight to 3 A.M. for the “revealing of Lightning Experience” and we even had a visitor from the Netherlands User Group who drove 300 km just to be there (yes you know who you are Rob!). The same day we held a debrief  for those who couldn’t attend the nightly experience.

In September, when most people came back from Dreamforce, we held our meeting about “Change Management” presented and hosted by C-Clear Partners which was AWESOME!


We flyered at Dreamforce2You Amsterdam to promote our group as well as The Netherlands User Group.

Reaching the end of the year we held our last meeting of 2015 hosted at 7Dots on “Release Management & Continuous Integration”

A powerfull presentation by Kris Jacobs.


That’s a wrap for 2015 folks!

Samuel and I would like to thank you all for attending our meetings, presenting and hosting them. You guys always brought your positive attitudes and shared a lot of knowledge and experience with your peers!

A very big thank you goes to the Partners and Customers who sponsored with food, drinks and a place to present: Absi, 4CConsulting, 7Dots, C-Clear Partners, van Gansewinkel.

I hope we can count on you in 2016 also ???? because we are already planning our first events for 2016!

So Happy Birthday Belgium User Group and a Happy New Year to all!

Keep an eye on our group on the Success Community and I hope to see you all at our next events!!
