    The Developer path diagram is really nice. But I have a suggestion. It shows a computer science or programming background as necessary to start down this path. Not true. It could discourage people without this type of background from ever going down this path.

    I am an instructor for, and we take people into the ADM 231 “Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming with Cod” with no background, and off they go.

    If you added that to the “Entry Level” area, it would give those without a programming background hope that they could do this. Because they can.

      Hi Jeff, thanks for your comments. This is meant to be used as a sample common developer path. It’s true that the majority of developers come from computer science degrees or similar, but it’s also true that the minority come from all range of different backgrounds. It’s hard to cater for all in this one infographic.

    This is nice. If I am not wrong, as you move up to Level 3, It’s not just Salesforce. You should know other related technologies as well. I would love to see a similar path for Analyst Role.
