Why Salesforce is so hot right now with developers!

Salesforce, the cloud computing company, is on a hot streak. In fact, it's the fastest growing software company in history and has been for years. Salesforce has doubled its revenue every year for the past decade - no small feat. And their growth isn't slowing down anytime soon! But why is Salesforce so popular with developers? Here are just a few of many reasons:

Salesforce is the fastest growing software company in history.

Salesforce is a cloud software company that has been around since 1999. Its most popular product is its Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software, which helps companies manage their customer data, send out emails and more. To date, Salesforce has over 200,000 customers in 180countries and claims to be the fastest growing software company in history.

Salesforce's ecosystem (the AppExchange)has something for everyone.

Salesforce’s AppExchange has thousands of apps, and developers are using them to solve problems in every part of the business. You can find apps for customer service, marketing automation, sales automation and more. Salesforce has even made it easy for developers to make their own applications that integrate with Salesforce data.

Salesforce offers a huge ecosystem of tools for just about everyone: admins can manage users; partners can manage the implementation process; and developers have access to everything from APIs (like RESTful or SOAP) or low-level code libraries (like Apex).

Salesforce has a fantastic community, with meetups and conferences all over the world.

The Salesforce community is the best part of Salesforce. The community is why you will want to learn more and keep learning, and why you'll want to keep working with it. It's also a great way to meet others who are just as excited about this technology as you are!

So, what can you do? Well, if there isn't already a meetup in your area that does most of these things listed below, then why not start one yourself? You don't have to be an expert or know everything about Salesforce, just bring your ideas and enthusiasm for learning new things about this awesome platform!

Lots of companies use Salesforce, including some of the most innovative companies on the planet.

If you want to get an idea of how large this ecosystem is, just look at the number of customers that Salesforce has: over 6,000. And if there’s one thing that can be said about Salesforce users, it’s that they are some of the most innovative companies in their respective industries. From Apple and Microsoft to McDonald's and Coca-Cola, many of the top 100 companies in the world use Salesforce to power their businesses on a daily basis.

It’s no surprise then that developers are flocking toward this technology platform now more than ever before, and with good reason!

·        Conference videos. Conferences are an excellent way for developers (and anyone else) to get new perspectives on what's going on within their industry - even if they aren't directly in volved with it themselves yet! A lot of conferences also provide recordings so that attendees can watch the presentations later if they weren't able attend themselves.

·        Developer documentation pages - whether it's guides or APIs documentation (or both), these pages are full of valuable resources that can help you understand how everything works together before getting started with any projects involving this technology stack so there won't be any surprises later down the road when things don't work exactly like expected, which is one reason why "fail fast" has become such an important philosophy among today's start-up culture since failure costs less than success does but still teaches valuable lessons worth knowing ahead of time before spending money unnecessarily.


The future of Salesforce is going to be very exciting, and it’s great to see so many developers are on board with this vision. With the release of Salesforce DX, there are now even more ways for developers to get involved in the platform and help shape its future.
