New Year, New Lightning Champions!

New Year, New Lightning Champions!

The Lightning Champions program is a peer-to-peer program that highlights Trailblazers, rewarding them for sharing their expertise with the Salesforce community.

So many Trailblazers are already champions within their communities, using Lightning to take users to the next level, sharing learnings and best practices, while helping others do the same.

The Lightning Champions program is a peer-to-peer program that highlights these Trailblazers, celebrating and rewarding them for sharing their expertise, as well as providing them access to our Lightning Champions community and exclusive opportunities to participate in Salesforce-sponsored events.

The program offers two paths: Activation and App Dev. Activation Champions lend expertise to peers in the planning stage of their rollout process for Lightning while App Dev Champions show others that building apps on the Lightning Platform is fast, easy, and fun!

Becoming a Lightning Champion is as simple as 1-2-3!
