In the mid of March, The Welkin Suite, one of Softheme’s global projects, took part in one of the largest and most internationally presented computer expos – the CeBIT 2016 conference. The members of TWS team prepared a review and shared their reflection on their trip to CeBIT.
We’ve selected some key points of the review that may interest you.

Some thoughts about participating in CeBIT:
“Since we presented our IDE in terms of Salesforce World Tour, our stand was located in the Salesforce Hall. Over the four days of CeBIT, we had a chance to talk to various people with different branches and levels of expertise in Salesforce. This diversity added to our pool of ideas and suggestions like no other, expanding our vision onto the things that were previously left out of our development-based perspective.”
“Given the fact that Salesforce is relatively new to the German market, we were faced with a considerable amount of explanation needed to get our visitors familiar with our IDE. Nonetheless, this experience allowed us to look at The Welkin Suite from a different angle – and put several updates on the usability to our agenda. In addition, our team had several valuable discussions with Salesforce administrators, whose approach to working with Salesforce along with their understanding of bottlenecks in the current workflow introduced a few extra challenges for our team to cope with in future.”
“Overall, CeBIT is an event that introduces a whole range of new networking options to companies, as it provides a most suitable background for sharing ideas and establishing new partnerships. As specifically for us, we had some high-level discussions with expert developers about Continuous Integration, along with other engaging conversations with the leaders of Salesforce dev groups, and, most importantly, got to showcase the first test Mac version of The Welkin Suite to Mac users!”
Some reflections about CeBIT in general:
“Since we had our own booth to take care of and that was our primary focus, we could not explore the expo thoroughly. Still, we managed to make a few breathtaking discoveries that we couldn’t stop discussing on our way home.
One of these discoveries is Pepper – the genuine companion robot that is capable of perceiving human emotions.”
“Apart from that, we were fascinated by the drones that were showcased in one of the booths.”
“And you can’t forget about all the fun brought to us by the Trailhead and its awesome representatives at CeBIT!”
Some reflections about Hanover:
“First off, we were impressed by the beauty of Hanover – classically German at some places, a fusion of epochs at others, strict and aerial, and overall majestic. Our team only took a few walks around the town, but these were enough to charm us.”
