What do you love most about Trailhead?

Trailheads have a lot of eligible examples that help you easier understand the feature you want to study. At the end of each module, there are tests that sometimes have joke answers or exercises that you need to perform in your Trailhead Playground in order to complete the module. After each completed trailhead you obtain a badge that turns the learning process into the challenge between your colleagues.

How did you first get into Salesforce?

I've got acquainted with Salesforce when I came to the SFDC courses at the JET BI. From the very beginning, I hadn't the clear understanding what this platform is about, however, the more Trailheads I've completed the more I understood this platform. And now I see that Salesforce is a very powerful platform that allows you to customize plenty of things without any code, just with point-and-click and this is cool.

Which bage are you most proud of?

I think the most cool badge that I have is 'Quick Start: Einstein Image Classification'. Einstein is a new technology in Salesforce and AI becomes more popular every day.

What advice do you have for new Trailblazers?

Try to understand everything you read. It will help you in your future job. Also there are a lot of helpful examples in Trailheads where you can find different solutions to your issues.

How do you make time for Trailhead?

When I`ve began learning Salesforce, I turned Trailhead into my full-time job. Now I am working full time as a SFDC developer. Nevertheless, I book a couple of hours each week for Trailhead.

How do you stay motivated to continue learning?

If you’re not keeping up with the latest technologies, you become obsolete. Salesforce is constantly growing, evolving, and adding new functionality and it’s something I need to stay updated. Trailhead has given me a fun and fast way to do this.
