Interested in an in-demand career with salaries up to six-figures? The job market for Salesforce professionals is growing, with over 300,000 job openings for Salesforce skills created last year*. In this class, you'll get a crash course in building simple employee-facing business apps that run on both a web browser and a mobile device - without writing any code!

This is not a sales pitch. I’m a Salesforce professional, and I’m passionate about bringing diversity to the tech sector and helping women learn about powerful career options.

Whether you’re familiar with Salesforce from your work experience or are just looking for a career in a hot field, join us to learn about app-building on Salesforce.

This class runs for 9am to 4:30pm with 30 minutes for lunch, and time for lots of breaks!
