As part of the Lightning Now Tour initiative by Salesforce, I got a chance to attend this amazing developer event in Bangalore. And I must say this, this has been the best hands-on experience I ever had in Lightning. The entire day, we were working on Lightning Experience. Hosted by Salesforce, the session was conducted by Shashank Shrivastava and Naga Kiran Manyala. The day started with 30 mins of introduction to the technology and then BOOM!!! We were all doing the hands-on workshop.
