Your day in the office

As first thing in the morning, you attend the daily Scrum meeting to discuss with the rest of the team members what you will be focusing on today. You should clarify all the requirements and the purpose of the tasks assigned to you and evaluate different possible solutions. You need to have updated knowledge of Salesforce features, standard functionalities and new releases in order to avoid over-customizing the platform and apply the right solution. You need to be proactive to refactor some Apex code, triggers or batches. Once your task is completed, you deploy the fix or new functionality on a test Sandbox and your QA engineer colleague can verify its quality. As soon as you have the green light, you can put it into production. Time flies and it's time to head out, you are happy with the progress you made.
