Largest ever survey on Salesforce DevOps
In his keynote address, Kevin will dive deep into the findings of Gearset's State of Salesforce DevOps 2021 survey to highlight current trends, future predictions and the impressive results of DevOps adoption by Salesforce teams around the world. In 2021, Salesforce DevOps entered a new era, with more and more teams adopting new tools and ways of managing releases on the platform. The survey is now the largest of its kind, so thank you again to everyone who took part!
