David’s note: SFDC99’s first success story from India! Sunil, your story is one of my favorites because you did it through hard work and perseverance. You are a true champion!
Here goes my Story. I am not that good in English so you may find many grammatical mistakes. Forgive me for that.
I am from India. I completed my graduation in 2011 in CSE background. I did not got through any of the campus interviews conducted in my college. After 6 Months of struggle I landed into a job as a fresher. So being a fresher I did not have any chance to choose the technology for my career. So I landed into networks team. It went well initially but during the time I fed up with work and my job as it became routine work nothing much interesting.
So I was looking for a change in technology. One of my friend Suggested me SFDC has bright future and I can go for it. My main goal is to become developer and write codes in any one of technologies. So I followed my friend’s suggestion.
So I choose one institute where I can learn SFDC by paying money. I used to get up early and travel to coaching center listen for 2 hours and then travel back to office directly from there. It’s my routine for next 3 months. I never skipped a class irrespective of what the situation may be. And my friend used to guide me daily on the topics covered at coaching center.
First 2 months only Admin part was covered completely and I have learnt almost each and every topic of it. But here is the twist when the development part started. Since I have knowledge on coding part it was like I did not grasped anything in next 1 month even though I go regularly to coaching center.
So this is when my Friend suggested me about your site from where I started learning the triggers and writing queries. After going through all the chapters from your site I was bit a confident and also attended the interview recently. And biggest part of it is I cleared it.
Thanks for posting inspirational stories and motivating your readers to take up challenges and solve them.
Sunil, I’m honored to have been able to help a champion like you! You are an inspiration to ME!
Enjoy the SFDC99 t-shirt that I’ll be mailing all the way to India (even though you didn’t ask for it)!
