Salesforce Weekly: Feb 23, 2018

Salesforce, such an amazing platform. It’s growing every day with more features for every industry, developers and products. Of course, one also needs to learn the system to be able to use it or build around it. There is salesforce documentation, trailhead, developer guides, implementation guides, webinars, white papers, and blogs; every medium is out there filled with information.

It’s an information avalanche and more is being published every week and it’s very hard to keep track of it all. Although, it seems impossible, purpose of Salesforce Weekly in my blog is to try and keep track of all these, compile a list and publish. Hopefully, someone will find these compiled resources helpful.
