We are all using Trailhead to learn, and it is constantly evolving. Sarah Franklin, the EVP of Developer Relations and GM of Trailhead, along with Chris Duarte, Kris Lande, Leah McGowen-Hare and a few Trailblazers, spoke about best practices to drive Salesforce adoption and scale onboarding with your own branded and customized content with myTrailhead.
