For the past several years, we have piggy-backed on the Digital Ocean event of Hacktoberfest. It started in 2017 when Josh Nerius and Dave Slusher (Former Developer Advocates) put together a system to allow ServiceNow developers to accept GitHub pull requests. Last year, the focus was around creating Spokes for IntegrationHub. You can check out the summary blog post about that lovely event! My favorite part was traveling to Minneapolis and visiting with Developer MVP and Meetup Organizer Jace Benson for his chapters Hacktoberfest event!
Here on the developer blog we try to regularly highlight the contributions from our 2020 Developer MVPs. They produce an abundance of great content aimed at ServiceNow developers that I’ve listed below grouped by the content creator. I need to shout out to Jace Benson’s (one of our dev MVPs) ServiceNow news aggregator at https://jace.pro/news/, which I used extensively to put this post together. Andrew Albury-Dor A flow theme it seems!
The Now Platform Paris release is now Generally Available! Now that Paris is GA that means that our early access period is over. During the roughly eight weeks of early access, we’ve posted deep dive blog posts on our pro-dev tooling, upgrades and ATF, Flow Designer, IntegrationHub, mobile, virtual agent, and more. We’ve also covered many of those Paris release features on our weekly Live Coding Happy Hour show.

We’ve gotten some questions lately around Developers MVPs for next year now that we’re 2⁄3 of the way through 2020, and we thought it would be a good time to post the high level criteria for the 2021 Developer MVPs. The MVPs are a collection of ServiceNow developers who are passionate about ServiceNow and inspire other developers by sharing their extensive knowledge freely. They help, encourage, and enable developers of all skill levels and types succeed in building and developing on the Now Platform.
Virtual Agent in Paris has a page full of enhancements that you can check out. We will look at a few of the highlights in this overview blog. Dashboard A useful dashboard is something that I very much appreciate. Visualizations and aggregation of information into understandable and actionable intelligence is the goal of a useful dashboard. In the Paris release, the VA Dashboard has been enhanced to give more insights to the operations managers and topic authors.
When I was looking through the content of our Paris release the Conversational custom chat integrations framework, while being a mouthful, jumped out at me. I’ve talked to numerous developers over the past year or two about our Virtual Agent and one of the most common questions is something along the lines of: Can I interact with ServiceNow’s Virtual Agent through a different chat tool outside of the OOB Slack, Teams, and Facebook integrations?
The Paris release brought many new features and enhancements to our Mobile functionality on the Now Platform. This post will highlight the top features in Paris that ServiceNow developers should be aware of. Mobile Filter Enhancement Before Paris, any filtering users did in the mobile application in lists and map applets happened on the client-side. That meant that they could only filter against the columns shown in a list and the data in the current pagination.
