We’re posting a series of vignettes to celebrate Salesforce’s 20th birthday. Follow our digital scrapbook to get a behind the scenes glimpse of our history.
Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at Salesforce. Trailhead is no exception. Before it became the learning platform that we know and love today — it was just an idea. A big idea sparked by the need to scale Salesforce learning and make it accessible to all.
We launched Trailhead at Dreamforce '14 with 11 badges and 3 trails
We acted with intention in everything we did. We made Trailhead for everyone — free, self-led learning enabling anyone to develop in-demand skills. And thereby pushing the needle of diversity in tech.
The big idea behind Trailhead?
The 2015 April Fool's Catter badge was the purr-fect hit
Fun fact: The Trailblazer hoodie was originally designed in gray! A happy accident with the first shipment gave us the iconic black one we have today.
We kept our Ohana in our #Trailhearts—putting our users at the center of everything, daring ourselves to challenge the norm by reinventing learning. But more than that, Trailhead was also developed to help connect the community. To share ideas and solutions, network, and support each other.
What's next for Trailhead? Even MOAR learning. As we continue to empower you, our community of Trailblazers, to blaze your own trail to the career of your dreams.
