R1D29 Becoming a Trailblazer

| programming | salesforce |

I finally threw away everything I thought I knew about SalesForce and began exploring the trailhead training program.

I began this yesterday, and ran into a couple of hiccups because for someone new to the platfrom it is a bit complex to get things started. (what is a sandbox, am I about to mess up prodcution data, I thought APEX was an oracle thing?)

However, after I was able to get my environment set up, and went through some quickstarts of the force.com IDE things finally began to make sense. Overall my take on Trailhead is:

  1. This is probably the best training platform ever created by a company.
  2. SalesForce is *so* powerful.
  3. I sent myself an email and it was fun.

They also make learning fun with their points and badge system, and they make testing out your code fairly simple with the trailhead development environments.

I am a freshly minted Scout on my way to become a Hiker and apparently I earned 1600 points today.
