Interested in an in-demand career with salaries up to six-figures? The job market for Salesforce professionals is growing, with over 100,000 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. We're Salesforce professionals, and we're 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.
What this class will cover:
• What is Salesforce and what are the career opportunities for Salesforce Admins and Developers?
• App-building concepts including data modeling, user interfaces, business logic, reports, dashboards, and mobile.
• Hands-on and guided project building to build a sample app in one day.
• Introduction to Trailhead (https://trailhead.salesforce.com/), a fun online learning platform for Salesforce.
• Resources for connecting with the Salesforce community (https://success.salesforce.com/).
The tools for learning to develop with Salesforce are free:
• Trailhead (https://developer.salesforce.com/trailhead/), the fun free way to learn Salesforce
• Salesforce1 Mobile App (AppStore and Google Play)
Students should be fairly familiar with using web and mobile applications and Googling for answers to all of life’s questions. You do not need any prior Salesforce experience.
Please bring a laptop, not an iPad/tablet. The visual development tools only run on a modern browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari 9.x and 10.x on Mac OS X, Internet Explorer 11).
