# Where to start?
A good place to start is to go over why you should learn salesforce in this day and age.
Or, you can jump to the topic of interest here or through the top navigation bar.
A basic introduction to Salesforce, why you should consider Salesforce as a career option, and what you can expect out of a Salesforce career. In short: you will get to decide whether you will be spending any time at all on this site!

# 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.
# 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 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.
