The Salesforce Developers website will undergo maintenance on May 29, 2024 from 3:00 a.m. UTC to 10:00 a.m. UTC. The maintenance process may affect the availability of our documentation. Please plan accordingly.

As we say goodbye to 2012 and look forward to 2013, no doubt you’re thinking about the goals and new skills you want to tackle in the New Year. We have a few suggestions for you over on our Facebook page, and we’re giving away t-shirts to kick off the New Year! Check out our suggestions for the top 5 resolutions for elevating your cloud developer career:

Resolution #1 – Build Your First App

Haven’t built an app yet? Dive in with the Workbook and get started! Once you’ve got that under your belt, no doubt you’ll want to learn more…

Resolution #2 – Watch a Webinar

There is so much FREE training out there for you to take advantage of, starting with recordings of all our past webinars, right at your fingertips! Get started with Canvas, Salesforce Identity, or brush up on Apex coding – all on demand. Still have questions?…

Resolution #3 – Participate on the Discussion Boards

The Salesforce Developer Community is AWESOME and the Discussion Boards are the place to go if you’ve got questions about any of our development tools. Start a new topic or join in on an existing discussion – maybe you have the answer another developer has been looking for! The Discussion Boards are one of the many ways you can connect with the community…

Resolution #4 – Join or Start a Developer User Group

If you haven’t joined your local Salesforce Developer User Group yet, you are missing out on the best way to connect with your fellow developers and brainstorm development topics. There’s no substitute for meeting face-to-face! Developer User Groups offer you a great way to expand your skills and build your network. Find the group nearest you, and if there’s not one nearby, let me know if you’d like to start one!

Resolution #5 – Get Developer Certified

This is the big one, and we have an amazing opportunity for you! Salesforce Developer Certification sets you apart as someone who is serious about their development career and committed to continually building skills. We want you to get certified in 2013, and for 25 of you we’re going to give you the exam for FREE! Be sure to “like” today’s post on Facebook to be entered in to win one of twenty-five Developer Certification exams. Check out the Salesforce Training & Certification page to get familiar with the exam process and review some sample questions. Then get ready to take your exam! Even if you aren’t one of the lucky 25 to win a free exam, you’ll still be ahead of the game when you resolve to make this investment in yourself! Good luck!

Don’t forget to visit Developer Force on Facebook where you can enter to win a t-shirt! Just “like” each of the daily resolutions posts. We’ll be randomly picking 25 winners from each day’s entries. Please note there are legal restrictions.
