Nǐ hǎo and a warm welcome to Wenbo Liu, our new junior Salesforce developer from China! Since that’s a very large country, we’ll be a bit more precise: Wenbo comes from the capital city of the northern Liaoning province: Shenyang. She’s been living in the Netherlands for about eight years now, initially to study Art and Technology at Saxion University of Applied Sciences in Enschede. After that, she did a Master programme Media Art Design and Technology at Hanze University of Applied Sciences in Groningen. All the fun projects she did during her study can be seen on her personal website. So let’s learn a little bit more about the woman behind this jam-packed page!

“I played around with different types of technology during my studies and internships. I am a creative designer and developer of games, apps, animations and interactive products. I worked at IBM Services Center for almost two years as a junior Salesforce developer. I’m in possession of the Salesforce Administrator and Salesforce Platform Developer I and II certifications.”
What is your passion? Also outside of work?
“My passion is technology, especially Salesforce skills. I feel comfortable working with that. After work, I like playing with my cavia’s (Dutch for guinea pigs). They help me to relief pressure.
