This month, the community voted to study Community Cloud – with
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.
The response we received from the inaugural Salesforce Architect Community Survey was tremendous. I am so pleased to share the feedback of 280 of our community members from more than 25 countries with you.
Aldo is a Software Engineer and Platform Architect; he’s been doing Salesforce development, consulting and architecting in the Platform since 2008. Aldo lives in Montevideo, Uruguay where he works remotely from a home office and travels a lot (more than he’d like) to NYC to visit customers onsite.
Thank you to everyone who gave up their time to come and study environment management with us! We are happy to share the recording and resources here.
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.
With 141 registrations, this was our first study group after Dreamforce! We also had the luxury of a CTA attending – and quite a few of our male friends too. Thank you for showing up and sharing your experiences with us all.
We’re really excited to introduce you to an English gentleman who always has our back – MVP and London Admin User Group leader Matthew Morris. You may know him from his Pluralsight Play-by-Play on diagramming; if you don’t and you’re on your #JourneyToCTA, please watch it – it will help.
He’s also a friend and supporter of Ladies Be Architects. Eric lives in southwestern Indiana, in a little map-dot town of about 400 people. He’s 20 minutes outside of Evansville, Indiana, which puts him 2.5 hours to Nashville, TN, Louisville, KY, and St. Louis, MO, as well as 3 hours to Indianapolis, IN.

- Questions checklist
- The pros and cons of Salesforce mobile apps vs custom apps
- HTML5, Native (iOS/Android/Windows Mobile) or Hybrid solutions
- Mobile app security
- Testing strategy
