I’m a big fan of Trailblazers for learning new features on the Salesforce/Lightning platform and the topics are growing for both Admins and Developers. Their are even trails for release plans like Winter ‘17.
A new update to the profile and dashboard have made it even more exciting to promote your Trails and Badges you have received.
This update has made me more determined to learn more through Trails and increase my knowledge, keeping up to date with all the latest features added to the platform and techniques to advance myself. If you are not used to this type of online learning experience then persevere as you will enjoy the process once you get into the swing of it.
The major advantage to training in say a video tutorial format is that with Trails you are reading the material to learn but then for many sections you will actually complete practical exercises in a developer org, which will be checked that it has been completed before you move on. This actual doing rather than watching or just reading is a powerful way to learn and remember what you have learned.
Here’s my Trailblazer profile if you want to watch my progress:
