Here's What to Expect from Salesforce's TrailheaDX 2021

TrailheaDX is the year's most exciting event for Trailblazers who want to learn new ways to build apps on Salesforce and expand the Salesforce Customer 360 Ecosystem from anywhere. For the second year now, Salesforce's annual TrailheaDX event will be online. This developer conference usually attracts thousands of coders, architects, and admins to San Francisco. However, since physical distancing protocols are still in place, Salesforce will take to the digital space again. TrailheaDX 2021 will be on June 23, 2021, at 8:45 a.m. Pacific Time—here are things to expect about this year's lineup.

More Design-Specific Sessions

Nearly half of Salesforce roles require design skills, and the software company is putting design front and center this year. This focus on design helps makers create human-centered customer experiences, something that Salesforce Designers are passionate about. TrailheaDX has sessions on integration architecture, becoming a Salesforce-certified UX designer, and more.

More Success Stories from Trailblazers

By definition, trailblazers do not follow established norms or processes. Instead, they forge a path. The TrailheaDX Main Show, hosted by Salesforce’s Co-founder and CTO Parker Harris is for all types of trailblazers. Whether you're a developer, admin, architect, or another type of maker, Salesforce's Customer 360 Platform lets you innovate, automate, scale, and empower the way you want.


9:00 a.m. — 10:00 a.m. PT

Expect Interactive Demos and Circles of Success

TrailheaDX will still have breakout sessions—more than 190, spanning topics relevant to the roles, products, and industries that Salesforce serves. From financial services companies to healthcare, B2B commerce, and more, there will be a session fit for you. We have listed some demos and lectures that might interest you, but you can also check out TrailheaDX 2021's schedule of sessions to learn more.

Lightning Design System and Styling Hooks

In the past, designers needed to do countless CSS overrides to make Lightning look the way they want. Now, we have CSS variables ensuring graceful degradation. In this demo, Alan Weibel, Jesse Brack, and Rebecca Yukelson show you how to change Lightning users' interface through styling hooks completely.

Demo Schedule:

11:30 a.m. — 12:00 p.m. PT

2:00 p.m. — 2:30 p.m. PT

UX Design for Admins and Developers

Steve Goforth and Chris Bill explore the fundamentals of human-centered design on Salesforce. They share critical principles in design thinking and will lead a brainstorming and research session to produce a home page that genuinely responds to your end-users needs. Designers creating experiences on Salesforce for startups would benefit significantly from this demo.

Demo Schedule:

12:00 p.m. — 12:30 p.m. PT

2:30 p.m. — 3:00 p.m. PT

Introducing Salesforce Diagrams

A diagram drives decisions, aligns delivery teams, and enables everyone to get on the same page. So, a project's success partly depends on the team using easy-to-understand diagrams. In this session, Marc Braga, Susannah St. Germain, Alan Weibel, and Zoe Heimdal introduce new tools for building Salesforce diagrams.

Demo Schedule:

12:00 p.m. — 12:30 p.m. PT

Building Products for Equity and Inclusion
