Developer Story: Manish Kumar

“Success is where preparation and opportunity meet”


In a world where everyone strives to succeed, only a few act virtuously and seize the opportunities that life presents. Manish, one of our dear colleagues, is a perfect example of what we’re discussing.

Manish, an experienced Python Developer, was one of the great talents of early CTU batches. He has come a long way since he first learned about Salesforce and is now working with Accenture on a big outsourced Salesforce project. 

On being asked about why he chose CTU (CEPTES Technopreneur University), he says “I was eager to switch to a technology that is future-proof”. Learning Salesforce, the leading cloud technology, through the robust platform of CTU was a dream come true. 

My introduction to CTU was through a friend who forwarded a LinkedIn post to me. I was a bit reluctant to switch to Salesforce because it was a major technological shift for me. But when I read about the success stories of other CTU graduates, I knew this is my doorway to a future-proof career. The experience with CTU was incredible. Priya Sir and Deepam Sir have been excellent teachers to us. The strong mentorship and guidance fostered a drive to innovate in us. 

I had no idea what life-changing four months of training and supervision at CTU would be for me. CTU has instilled in me the confidence that “I can handle a Salesforce Project Individually”. My aspiration now is to work as a Vlocity Architect. I already have the Omni Studio Developer Certification under my belt and I intend to complete more certifications in the upcoming days.


To all my CTU mentors: “Your love of learning has drawn me into a whole new universe of exploring ideas”


I am forever grateful to you.

Dhara Khanna Shares her Journey2Salesforce Experience

Hi, This is Dhara here, currently a Business Analyst at CEPTES Software. It is quite an interesting fact that I have not been associated with tech for the longest and yet my skills & learnings along with my passion to grow had got me an opportunity to be part of the service team at CEPTES.

Not long back, I had started my career as a business and community manager and I had no idea what my journey would look like. I was completely into non-technical roles until I joined CEPTES. To be honest, I was terrified to start my journey as a Business analyst as I had no knowledge in coding. CEPTES is a Salesforce silver consulting partner and prior to journey, I had no experience in Salesforce.

However, this didn’t stop the CEPTES family to believe in me. I was constantly guided and given the opportunity to have hands-on experience on multiple projects so that I could grow every day not only as a Business Analyst but also learn more about Salesforce.

I had always wondered that for any CRM solution, one has to learn to code and there is no way, I could do that but believe me, my idealogy changed while working with the team here.

In no time, I started helping my team in basic areas and now, I seem to understand the platform much better than 9 months ago.

Today, I stand firm and say that one doesn’t need to be from a tech background to start their journey with Salesforce.

Anyone from any background with the right passion can start and such individuals are really appreciated at CEPTES.
