Over the weekend, we held our second hack-a-thon at Texas A&M-Commerce. This semester, we have been working with the Computer Science and Business Analytics departments to expose graduate students to Salesforce administration and reporting. This session, the emphasis shifted from custom fields and data elements over to data imports and exports.
On Saturday, we had two guest speakers – Sameer Vitvekar, a Certified Salesforce Administrator with Columbia Advisory Group, and Liz Soria, a recent graduate from the Business Analytics and current data analyst. It was a rainy weekend but the clouds lifted long enough for the class to enjoy a football game. It was great to see young people so enthusiastic about learning and experimenting with Salesforce.
