Programmatic Development using Apex and Visualforce

Gain the skills necessary to support the world’s leading CRM solution

Customer-centricity is rapidly becoming a critical success factor, and we know your organization’s Salesforce solution plays a key role. We’re here to help you obtain the skills needed to take full advantage of your Salesforce deployment. Our courses will help you learn how to implement, configure and manage your Salesforce instance as well as learn how to build, extend and deploy custom apps on Salesforce1.

Whether you’re a current or aspiring Salesforce administrator, developer or business user, we have the training you need in order to certify your skills and maximize return on your organization’s Salesforce solutions.

Are you a programmer who wants to understand how to customize applications programmatically on the platform? In this course, you will learn the core of the Apex programming language and Visualforce markup in order to customize your applications. You will get hands-on experience building data objects (sObjects) and programmatically retrieving, manipulating, and storing the data associated with those objects. You will write custom logic using Apex triggers and classes, and test that logic using the built-in testing framework. You will explore how Apex code interacts with declarative customizations on the platform, and the nuances of working on a multi-tenant platform. You’ll then examine common techniques for designing solutions in Apex. These activities will culminate in an exercise building a complex trigger that takes advantage of the declarative aspects of the platform. You will get hands-on experience writing Visualforce pages to customize your user interface and Visualforce controllers (in Apex) to modify the controller behavior behind the interface. You’ll also explore design techniques and the built-in testing framework around Visualforce. Attendees on this course will receive 30 days access to the Salesforce labs giving them the opportunity to reinforce their learning through further hands-on practice.


After the completion of this course you will be able to:

Create and modify objects using the declarative interface
Write business logic customizations using Apex triggers and classes. Those customizations will use SOQL and DML.
Design programmatic solutions that take advantage of declarative customizations
Describe how your trigger code works within the basics of the Save Order of Execution
Describe some of the fundamental aspects of designingprograms on a multi-tenant platform
Write Visualforce markup and code to customize the user interface
Use the built-in testing framework to test Apex and Visualforces
