Ah the seasons of life go by so quickly…
It’s time for me to start my next adventure.
I’m taking my career in a different direction. One where my Salesforce skills aren’t really relevant anymore. A world where I’ll be a child once again, much like things were not long ago when I began learning to code. “Always be learning” – words once taught to me that I think about often.
I know in my heart I will no longer be able to give SFDC99 the love that it needs. I’ve been thinking about this a lot – this site has been the reason for many of my life’s happiest moments and I am grateful every day for it. But now I know it’s time for SFDC99 to come to an end.
Don’t be sad. This site is the result of many learnings in my life from many, many heroes. The goal of SFDC99 was always to simply “pass it on.” I dreamed of inspiring the next generation of Salesforce developers, but I always knew at some point it had to end.
And as it ends, the question I wonder is, “Who will be next?” There must be someone out there ready to take the baton and inspire another generation. I remember when that time came for me – I didn’t think I’d be able to make a difference, but today, I’m thankful that I tried.
Maybe that person is you. Maybe you, in your own way, will help pass it on and inspire a wide-eyed Salesforce student out there. I’ll tell you from experience that it’s a joy you might never experience elsewhere, but in the end, it’s for a cause that’s much bigger than you or me. I’d love to hear your stories one day.
There are so many things in the Salesforce world still waiting to be taught, and every year that list gets more and more exciting.
It’s a magical world my friends, no doubt about it! Time to go exploring!
