Favorite Salesforce Feature

Just one? Honestly, it’s the Platform. Having built fullstack web apps for many years, developing on Salesforce with clicks or code is so fast, scalable, adaptable, and enjoyable. I simply love designing and implementing automation and logic on the platform! Invocable Apex for Process Builder and Flow is one of my favorite clicks+code combinations.

Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement

Quick Create in Classic; bypasses validation rules and not really customizable. Lookup fields in Lightning Experience are much more awesome-er =)

Attend Dreamforce to connect with as many of the Salesforce #Ohana and my role models as possible. For 2018 I’d like to attend Destination Success and participate in Technical Architect mock review board.
