Copado Cares program recognizes the need for Salesforce DevOps skills and tools as a new set of applications are being developed to fight the pandemic
Chicago – April 2, 2020 – Copado, a leading native DevOps platform for Salesforce, today announced the immediate availability of free access to its platform for anyone working on applications to fight COVID-19. Additionally, Copado has launched a virtual DevOps training center and opened its DevOps community to anyone in the Salesforce ecosystem. The Copado Cares program will also make DevOps certifications free for 90 days and host three virtual “DevOps Days” each month in North America, EMEA, India and Asia.
As companies are mobilizing to build new applications and technologies to eliminate COVID-19 and break down the inherent silos created by today’s more isolated and virtual world, DevOps skills are even more in demand. Inspired by the Salesforce COVID-19 response, the Copado Cares program supports Copado’s mission to enable individuals and companies to achieve faster velocity, higher quality and improved trust with a DevOps approach to Salesforce projects.
“We are living through an unprecedented global event and now is the time for us to come together to fight COVID-19,” said Ted Elliott, chief executive officer for Copado. “Our team has been affected by this virus, as have our customers, partners and the community at large. Enabling the technology industry to respond quickly to this pandemic will bring forth new, creative solutions. Copado has the tools, training and support to accelerate the development of high quality applications to tackle this complex problem. We will continue to look for opportunities to engage with our partners to provide support to this mission.”
The Copado Cares program has a goal of training and enabling over 10,000 people on Salesforce DevOps this year in order to support the surge in demand for skills to deliver Salesforce innovation. The program has four main components:
