I interview influencers in the Salesforce ecosystem so that we can gain a better understanding of how to excel in a career path from a Salesforce Admin to an Architect.

    The Future of Salesforce Careers

    The Future of Salesforce Careers

    This episode's a little different from the regular podcast because it is a session I hosted at London's Calling. London's Calling is a Salesforce community in-person event that I run every year where we bring Salesforce gurus and influences from across the ecosystem. The aim of the event is for all of us to better understand best practices on the Salesforce platform and to help build long-lasting relationships with Salesforce experts across the world that has helped so much in my career. So this session is a panel discussion on the future of Salesforce careers, the current demands, and tips and tricks in the ecosystem. We have Stuart Mills, VP of Trailhead & Ecosystem in EMEA, working at Salesforce. Vikky Moritz-Henry, a Salesforce Consultant and freelance Salesforce trainer from France and Martin Brown, a newly minted Salesforce Administrator, is talking about what he learned while getting his first job, as well as myself.

    So if you are interested in growing your Salesforce career and understanding some tips and tricks and stats on the current Salesforce talent economy, then you will find some value in this conversation with Stuart, Vikki, Martin and myself.

    At Salesforce Posse, we interview influencers in the Salesforce ecosystem so that we can gain a better understanding of how to excel in a career path from a Salesforce Admin or Developer to an Architect.

    From Salesforce Admin to Salesforce Certified Architect with Johann Furmann

    From Salesforce Admin to Salesforce Certified Architect with Johann Furmann

    This episode's guest is Johann Furmann from Berlin. What I love about his Salesforce Story is that he started as an Accidental Salesforce Admin and is now a Certified Technical Architect and has only relatively recently started learning to code on the platform in depth. He is living proof that you don't have to be a really incredible coder on the platform to become a Certified Architect. He works with clients across the world to help support and architect their salesforce implementations following industry standards and best practices and also now builds apps on the Salesforce platform to help Salesforce admins at AdminsHelper.com.

    At Salesforce Posse, we interview influencers in the Salesforce ecosystem so that we can gain a better understanding of how to excel in a career path from a Salesforce Admin or Developer to an Architect.   

    Johann is one of a growing number of people that are freelancing and carving out a niche for themselves and working for clients across the globe. We talked about if Admins are Architects, Developing on the salesforce platform, and how he sees his role as an architect.

    All things Salesforce Flow with Andy Engin

    All things Salesforce Flow with Andy Engin

    I think of Andy Engin as one of the masters of Salesforce Flow. My go-to guy on anything Flow related, so it made sense to pick his brains in this month's Salesforce Posse to dig into how he started in Salesforce, his experience with teaching Flow to 1000s of people across the globe and the future of the Technology.
