In today’s episode, we’re joined by Salesforce Manager and Certified Technical Architect, Nikunj Doshi.
Nikunj has an interesting story, having begun his career in sales and business development, before first learning to code as part of an intensive training program with Infosys in India.
He explains what the training campus and the culture are like, as part of one of these large intakes, and how he found the program as a way to learn.
Having worked as a Tech Lead for a broad range of international clients in India following his completion of the program, Nikunj went on to relocate to Australia.
With the support of mentors and peers, he worked his way into an architecture role, and pursued the CTA credential. Nikunj walks us through his two Review Board attempts, what he learned, and how he was able to achieve the elusive pass, the second time around.
He gives valuable tips and insights for others who have also the ambition to become a Certified Technical Architect. We discuss the Developer role, and it’s day-to-day challenges; the issue of poor quality code, and the importance of conscientiousness in this area.
It was great to catch up with Nikunj and hear his story, including how he immersed himself in the ecosystem when he first arrived in Australia.
Definitely follow him on LinkedIn to continue to follow his story!
