What we’ve learned from this morning is quite exciting, but there’s plenty more to come. If you can’t make it out to a Salesforce Usergroup viewing parties be sure to join the rest of the world viewing the full reveal later today via livestream.

We’ll update the post with a livestream video when/if it’s available.
