Building My First App on the AppExchange

A few months ago, there was an announcement that went out to all employees about a Salesforce labs competition. The challenge was to build a mobile app, pass a security review, create a YouTube video to market it, and list it on AppExchange. This sounded like a great opportunity since I’d always wanted to build an app on the Salesforce platform, but I didn’t know how to start. What would I build? Did I have all the skills needed?

You may have had a summer internship and it was fantastic, but it only lasted three months. Why not take the great experience you’d get from a summer internship, skip that campus job and come work (remote is fine!) for the most innovative company in the world filled with some of the best security technologists you’ll ever find.
