Meet Astro, Codey & Friends, The Salesforce Trailhead Family

Updated: Mar 31, 2022

Salesforce changed the way people perceived business software when it launched in 1999. Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce, imagined making software easier to buy, use and distribute without the hassles of installation, maintenance, and endless updates. Their mascot SaaS was developed shortly after the logo NO SOFTWARE was created. Customers were brought together and supported by SaaS. Salesforce’s family had expanded along with the business.

The Trailhead characters embrace the company’s lighter side and encourage Ohana to forge new paths. Every character has a role to play and a distinct aim to achieve. Learn a bit more about them in this blog.
