David Reed

I’m David Reed. I am a Principal Member of Technical Staff at Salesforce, where I work on the CumulusCI toolchain. Opinions expressed on this site are my own.

I have expertise in high-scale managed packaging, automation and CI/CD for Salesforce, and Salesforce platform development and architecture. I work in Python, Apex, JavaScript, and Rust.

My passions include teaching and technical evangelism, open source, science fiction, classical languages, and gardening. My background is in Ancient Greek and Platonic philosophy.

Where you can find me:

You might be looking for a project I maintain (like Amaxa, Baris, or Bibliothekai), for an article I’ve written, or for links to the talks I’ve given on CumulusCI, Salesforce, DevOps, and other topics.
