The Brainiate Show: Daniel Peter Reveals His Salesforce Superhero Secrets

In this episode I sit down for a chat with Daniel Peter, Salesforce MVP, Bay Area Salesforce Developer User Group Organizer and Lead Applications Engineer at Kenandy. 

Daniel shares his wild experiences at three Salesforce community events: Tahoe Dreamin', Snowforce and Punta Dreamin'. 

I think Daniel traveled more in the last few weeks than I did in the last 15 years. Daniel gives us some insight and advice on how he uses Salesforce to solve common business problems using both native and custom solutions in ways that are both efficient and effective.
