Creating Salesforce Developer Edition Account And Connect With Trailhead Org

Introduction

 
Salesforce provides two different lightning platform accounts to test our Hands-on challenges in the salesforce platform. These platforms are “Trailhead Playground” and “Developer Edition”. Both types of platforms have the same feature like App exchanges, user accounts and Admin modifications. But “Developer Edition” contains customizations, it looks like a company side usage. It provides an unique URL and with more admin controls.
