When did you first learn about Salesforce?
I was working in sales and getting my master’s degree in Industrial/Organizational Psychology, but knew I wanted to switch careers. I joined several local women's developer groups — including Girl Develop It (GDI)
and Women Who Code
— to learn, network, and get a deep dive through their workshops. Paula Nelson
recommended I attend a two-day Salesforce workshop hosted by Chris Duarte. When Chris demoed building on the Salesforce Platform with clicks not code, I was hooked! I went home, and within 24 hours I quit my master’s degree program to learn Salesforce.
