Tucked away among the many great product announcements at Dreamforce calendar was the unveiling of Salesforce Trailhead. While not a product per se, Trailhead is a great addition to the Salesforce line-up. According to the Salesforce Developer site Trailhead is "an interactive learning path through the basic building blocks of the Salesforce1 Platform."

Basically, Trailhead is a free tool created by developers for aspiring developers and admin that want to learn the ins and out of  building apps inside Salesforce. It provides a structured approach that uses modules and tests that cover all aspects of the platform, from Apex Basics to Validations. And while the program is structured in a way to ensure the best learning path, users can jump around to any module at any time.
Users can also track their progress by logging in to their existing developer accounts (if you don't have one you can signup for a free account here). Adding to the fun, Trailhead users can earn points and badges for completing challenges, which can then be displayed on Twitter, Facebook, and Linkedin.
