Become an Integration Trailblazer – Phil’s Salesforce Tip of the Week #410

This week’s tip is for you to become an Integration Trailblazer and give something back in doing so. By learning the basics of APIs and integrations with the brand new Integration Trailblazer trail, you can give back to the World Food Programme. For every completion of the trail before August 31, 2020, Salesforce will donate $10 to the World Food Programme (up to $10,000), so take the trail now and help in upping that donation!
