David Liu’s blog focuses on learning and certification training, building upon his own experience of learning code from scratch and going on to become a Salesforce MVP. He started the blog as he felt when he was learning Apex that all of the online resources were catered towards people who already knew how to code – and so he saw an opportunity to help people.
