David’s note: I haven’t cried in years, but I cried when I read your story. I’m very proud of you and I too hope to meet you one day at Dreamforce!
I want to say thank you and how I got job. If it helps to others publish it because I was motivated by success stories. I will start giving back to the community once I set well in Salesforce. Plz don’t show my name but just keep in your heart we’ll meet soon.
Once I had a chat with you in your last live coding class. Hope you remember I told you David soon you will get a success story. It took some time but that day came man it has happened because of you from zero to Senior software developer.
I’ve seen a lot of high and lows in my career but my life stopped at one stage. No money, hungry, and everyone started moving away from me. One day my friend told me about SALESFORCE. I started Google first thing I seen is SFDC99. I am with SFDC99 for one month, I went though each and every page for n number of times on my laptop browser and mobile.
David made SALESFORCE an addiction to me. I left home, no friends, no parties, no phone calls. I went to classroom classes, Salesforce webiners in YouTube, Trailheads, all from scratch to high level. How to create objects to how to write 400 lines of triggers.
Where there is a will there is a way. My will foundation is strong because of SFDC99 success stories and your saying ANYONE CAN CODE. While I am reading success stories I decided that day I have to write one. It took 8 months seriously no words, now I have three offers in hand from top mnc’s, this is Salesforce.
Guys never give up but think out of box, change your resume presentation think like you’re marketing your skills, do certifications. Coding is very easy it has happened with me why not with you. I didn’t even know a single line of code. Come on make your will strong there is life in Salesforce.
Thanks to my parents, my wife (who made me to do something), my friends, my David.
