January Training & Learning Update

by Jake Patoski, Manager of Training & Online Learning, Salsa

Happy New Year! We’ve got lots of new plans for learning Salsa in 2014: a re-organized (and easier to use) learning portal, clearer New User guides and more “quick bite” interactive guides. Check out the full January training and learning update here.
