This blog post is now out of date. There are now many more user groups in the UK and across Europe. Check out the post 5 years ago today a small event kicked off Salesforce CrazinessÂ for a more up to date list
Salesforce user groups are a great place to pick up tips and tricks on how to use Salesforce, apps that you didn’t realise existed or even just to network with other gurus in the industry to get your questions answered.
There are two types of user groups. The normal user groups for Salesforce administrators and users and the developer user groups for people building or wanting to build on the Salesforce platforms.
