# Why do this?

Think of this as a practical study guide that adds on to the many practical study guides on the Internet.. only better 😃

The aim is to have open source content that anyone can use as reference to study or teach Salesforce. We know there are alternatives (some of which are really good), but we see this guide as structured towards specific objectives, "to the point", easy to organize, and follow through. If you know of other excellent guides and study materials - feel free to add references and make this guide useful for all.

How this is different from Trailhead? Guides and lessons here refer trailhead - quite a lot. Trailhead sets high standards when it comes to learning something, and there is no intent to compete there. The idea is to get as much information to consume in less time and fewer clicks.

# Technology behind the guide

Our platform is simple. The objective is to organize written content, videos, presentations and links. We are nowhere near to Trailhead when it comes to organization, humour and interactivity - but we still do cool stuff.

  • Content is written in Markdown with some help from MARP / Google Slides for presentation
  • We use Vuepress to generate static pages from Markdown
  • The main site is hosted on GitHub and we guarantee that this will remain up as long as there is Git in this Universe

# Contributing

Contributing to the guide(s) is as simple as opening a pull request, making changes on your version of content, and requesting merge. Head over to the contributing page for instructions.

We are careful about duplication, quality of content, and cautious in ensuring that the repository is not seen as a "super directory" of all Salesforce content in every part of this Universe.
