Appy, the mascot of the Salesforce AppExchange, was having a 1 year anniversary. Appy has fans who were wishing her well on her birthday via Twitter, Facebook and in person at Salesforce events. This page collects those birthday wishes into a single place for fans to say Appy Birthday.
The constantly updated animation on the page is powered by a custom Laravel CMS on Heroku. Through the course of the birthday celebration, new wishes were poring in. The Wish Management CMS was a quick way to manage wishes in realtime. During the campaign run, the Appy Birthday experience was one of the most popular spots on Salesforce.com.
You’ll have to wait for Appy’s birthday to come around again to submit your own wish though.
Before Appy hit her 1st birthday, the AppExchange had already reached it’s 5 millionth app installation. Milestones are meant to be marked. We worked with Salesforce to build this site to commemorate the occasion. This is another dynamic animation using Heroku as the back end.
