Habits for success as a Salesforce Technical Architect

A CTA is someone who demonstrates the knowledge, skills, and capabilities to design and build high-performance technical solutions on the Salesforce Platform across all domains.

To be a Technical Architect, you need to be both a big-picture thinker and in-depth problem solver, your knowledge and skills being both broad and deep. This Global Master Instructor at Salesforce shares his habits for developing an Architect mindset, which you can practice on your journey to becoming a CTA.

Engage the community

Answer a technical question, post your own, share useful resources you have discovered (or created), or encourage someone to take the next step in their journey. But most of all, be part of the conversation. The more you engage with the community, the more you'll get out of it.

Fast thinking

The invaluable Salesforce Architect Trailmixes are a great place to start building these fundamentals.

Brush up on your presenting skills

Use your peers, colleagues and community groups and events to learn more and discover best practices and tips and tricks.
