If you’re thinking about going for the Certified Technical Architect review board, it’s easy to think it’s just another exam. It isn’t. It’s a journey of self development – highly challenging and needing a lot of practice. Charly and I have been going through this process for several months and have found that having a mentor and practicing through regular mock exams have been incredibly helpful. Add this to the new CTA-601 workshops that Salesforce runs and you have a great way to prepare.
We are pleased to support our member Natalya Murphy, who will be starting a 7-session study group for the Integration Architecture Designer exam beginning on Tuesday, June 12 with a goal of having participants ready to take the exam the week of July 24.
In May, Gemma went to Amsterdam to speak at the Developer User Group: Demystifying CTA. It was an awesome event; we had the luxury of FOUR CTAs sat on our panel to answer questions from the group. It was so engaging, the meet-up went on until 10pm!
The Netherlands team has made Gemma’s opening presentation available and you can watch it here. Enjoy!

Ashley Allen was born and raised in Southern California. USA. She is an entrepreneur, mother of 3, a non-binary lesbian and Salesforce consultant.
Shortly out of college, having just relocated to Buffalo, NY with her now ex-husband, Ashley found out she was pregnant with their second daughter. Broke and desperate for a job, she wanted to find work at home so that she could keep working after the baby was born. Ashley couldn’t afford to take time off because she was on partial government assistance at the time, and skipping work meant there wouldn’t be any food on the table.
