In the  inaugural meetup we had two technical session one through online and other in offline. Initially I gave intro about the user group and then Ritika Dhandia who is technical lead in and Venkat who is developer in joined through online.

Ritika took one hour session on “Salesforce mobile sdk” and showed demo on it, then she answered some technical questions related to Salesforce platform through online and then Satheesh(member of group) he took a session on  “how to deploy the app in the AppExchange”. Later we gave opportunity to each attendee to share their views and expectation on the upcoming meet ups and at the end conducted cloud trivia and distributed the T-shirts, books to the winners.

Avoid Duplicate Records Using Flow
