The community is arguably one of the best aspects of a career in the Salesforce ecosystem. Without the help and support of others around the world, a lot of us might have struggled to progress our careers in the first place!
As the Salesforce ecosystem evolves, so do the channels and online communities where people gather to ask questions, advise, and have a bit of fun in the process. Slack communities are one of the latest trends to popup, as they provide a fantastic, intuitive, and engaging platform. Here are our top picks for Slack communities to join for Salesforce advice…
