New Course Covers Building Applications on Salesforce

Tuesday, March 6, 2018

My latest Pluralsight course is “Building Your First Salesforce Application”.

Learn how to work with Salesforce.com by creating custom applications. Start by signing up for a developer account on Salesforce.com, and finish with a full application including reports and dashboards that work on both desktops and mobile devices.

Salesforce is a new territory for me, and when the course was announced the question poured in. Are you moving to the Salesforce platform?

The short answer is no.

The longer answer is that I hear Salesforce in conversations more often. Companies and developers need to either build software on the Salesforce platform or use Salesforce APIs. There was a time when I thought of Salesforce as a customer relationship solution, but in these conversations I also started to hear Salesforce described as a database, as a cloud provider, and as an identity provider. I wanted to find out for myself what features and capabilities Salesforce could offer. I spent some time with a developer account on Salesforce, and when Pluralsight said they needed a beginner course on the topic, I decided to make this course.

I hope you enjoy watching and learning!

Hi Scott, I thought you purely work with MS .net stack. I have been following your courses and learning Angular as well. Now I see your course for SalesForce and it just threw me off. Its making me think.. may be I should jump on SalesForce wagon. But I want to concentrate on 1 thing and get good at it. So why SalesForce? May be you could afford to learn cool tech at your stage of life. And I need to just concentrate on 1 technology for now. Looking forward to your feedback. Thanks Syed
