A Day in the Life of a Salesforce Developer

 
 
Morning
You grab coffee and head to your daily meeting with your team. A colleague has a good idea for a new feature. You head back to your desk to think it through and start sketching out architecture ideas.
 
Midmorning
Architecture, check. Next you check out a quick video on how to implement the feature. Feeling confident, you dive in to coding.
 
After Lunch
You’ve deployed your new feature in a test environment. It’s looking good. Time to start testing it. You make note of issues to fix and enhancements to make.
 
Afternoon
As you continue working on your feature—writing and testing bits of code—you can tell it’s getting better and better.
 
End of Day
Before heading out, you document your progress for the day and jot down questions to ask your colleagues in tomorrow’s stand-up.
