Web application development London is not about just getting the things done on a takeaway basis. It’s also about the experience which one enjoys through the development and while such experiences are not often found in the busy working environment at our office in Faringdon, I thought to go away on a journey of discovery .. where the new becomes the tool to experience the void of pleasure …

So not long after Friday, around 6pm I went and registered for a Hackathon where I received a portable battery charger as a welcome price from the organizers … well welcome tho’ .. as I love travelling and getting in cables for every socket can be sometimes painful …

So hey .. .after I joined the competition, I made this pitch about turning sales people phones into watchdogs .. which was not quite loved by the audience and managed to get only 6 votes … although .. while looking for votes through the crowd .. I found Dan, Chris and Tommy … a formal but informal coding team from White Springs which brighten the atmosphere with some pretty cool white t-shirts, as opposed to everyone else, which was dark dressed, more for like hackers – so I thought … these are the white hats guys … and they were indeed.

I was mesmerized by their idea, to turn triggers into games … and then I’ve paid my tips to them and we joined forces to make the next destination of Salesforce into a game experience which will transform any mobile device into a competition deck .. and we achieved it ..

Tommy, Dan and Chris were so talented, they actually managed to re-write a whole new system for processing triggers in just 12 hours and then we pitched it .. the audience loved it .. we thought we will win it  … but we we’re not … not to worry .. I still believe that Crush Saga should have bubbles popping with lazy colleagues which loose their way along the sales process …

Game of Sales has been developed as a tool to keep the sales team engaged and incentivised by unifying data and game-play to leverage Salesforce to better competitive advantage. There is a lot of data in Salesforce but the challenge is to turn it into something meaningful, make it sticky and increase adoption.

Overall there was a great experice, good food and a great team which crafted in 48 hours what others would do in 1 week. All respect to Chris Castle, Thomas Elliott and PM Dan Cook.
