I have always been big fan of Trailhead and already wrote few articles previously. It has huge response, support and expectation from community. We already know that former MVP “Jeff douglas” joined Trailhead team and there are many more positions open in same team. All these indications shows that “Trailhead” still has miles to go and awesomeness has not even started yet. Its innovative way to learn Salesforce and everything is at same place, you don’t need to spend a single penny to get quality education and understanding concepts about Salesforce. Simply complete modules, projects and share badges on your linked profile or any other social media to demonstrate your expertise. It has huge help for recruiters as well to cross verify if candidate has really completed that badges in addition of Salesforce Certificates.

So, what’s in Santa Claus goodies bag for Salesforce admin, developers and business users ?
