Share this article...

In exciting news, Salesforce have announced the launch of Trailblazer Community Groups for Architects! This is great news for existing or aspiring Architects looking for a place to learn and network with other like-minded individuals.

Here’s what we know so far…

What Will I Learn at an Architect Community Group?

Architect Community Groups are advised to focus on higher level architecture topics. This might include complex security models, diagramming, design patterns, multi-cloud solutions, and governance.

These topics will be more advanced than you might find at an Admin group, but the idea is not to get caught in the weeds with code either, which would be more suitable for a Developer group.

Who Should Attend an Architect Community Group?

This new type of community group is aimed at Salesforce Architects who work across the suite of Salesforce products, such as Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, Marketing Cloud, MuleSoft, Heroku, Slack, and so on.

There are multiple types of Salesforce Architect, but every type of Architect is responsible for designing scalable solutions that will meet business needs now, and in the future. Their in-depth understanding of Salesforce architecture and products enables them to be big-picture thinkers, while following best practice.

I believe that aspiring Salesforce Architects should also utilize these groups as a great opportunity to upskill on complex topics, while learning from some of the best minds in the Salesforce eco-system.

How Do I Become an Architect Community Group Leader?

You can now apply to start a new Salesforce Architect Community Group via the Trailblazer Community Groups website. In order to apply, you should identify as a Salesforce Architect. You should have a passion for and a commitment to sharing knowledge and facilitating a community.

  1. How to set up the best Flow design pattern for your Org. I know it very much depends on your Org size and complexity but maybe there are a few common design patterns that (almost) always apply? And if not: how you should approach designing the correct and scalable pattern for your org. Are there common steps to appoint? Thank you!

  2. I’m really looking forward to this. One area I will be focusing on is how to implement security and data privacy in a manageable way on the Salesforce platform.
