We sat down with the man who literally wrote the book on the Salesforce CTA, to learn his story and what inspired him to pass his knowledge on to so many others through his new book, “Becoming a Salesforce Certified Technical Architect”.
Sharayu is Australia’s first female CTA! We caught up with Sharayu shortly after she got the news that she’d passed her CTA board exam. Sharayu is a Technology Delivery Architecture Manager at Accenture, leading large enterprise implementations of Salesforce. Sharayu got her start in the Salesforce world in 2011 coming from a developer background, with experience in Java before picking up Apex.
We first met up with Jannis at TrailheaDX in May 2019 – and we’re thrilled to share his advice and CTA story with you all. Jannis is German and settled in Sydney, Australia. As a practice partner for solution engineering, innovation and incubation at System Partners, he leads a team of Solution Engineers and acts as a strategic advisor and Salesforce product expert to some of the largest, most complex enterprise customers in ANZ. Jannis is married and has a young son.
Our latest volunteer Certified Technical Architect is Emely Patra, a Strategic Advisor, wife and mother who works for Salesforce in the UK. She passed her review board in July 2018 and we were very happy to learn that another woman had passed! We asked her some key questions about her experiences – the ramp-up, the day of the exam and how becoming a CTA has affected her career.
This is Carl Brundage – experienced architect and the first volunteer for our new blog series – Meet a CTA! We’ve had him as a guest on our podcast before, but this time we wanted to read his story.
