Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Don Robins, and welcome to my course, Salesforce Platform for Developers: The Big Picture. As a Salesforce MVP and Technical Certified Instructor, I've been helping to educate developer community about Salesforce technology for over a decade. In this course, you'll learn about the full Salesforce Platform and the endless opportunities it presents for developers across its diverse and varied landscape of industry domains and tech stacks. You'll learn about the technologies behind its many core and non‑core, cloud‑based applications and how specific developer skills map to each. You'll learn what no code, low code, and pro code really mean on Salesforce, and you'll learn why you just might thrive as a Salesforce developer, whether you focus on front end, back end, full stack, database, web, mobile, integration, analytics, artificial intelligence or something else. By the time we're done, you'll understand where you can focus your attention on opportunities in the Salesforce ecosystem that best match your skills experience and personal interests. So I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn all about it with my course, Salesforce Platform for Developers: The Big Picture, at Pluralsight.
