If you're a new intermediate Salesforce developer stuck in the capabilities of Apex Triggers, it may be time to use asynchronous Apex. Asynchronous Apex fires on Salesforce's queue and outside the context of triggers, which allows for massive workloads, expensive computations, and parallel processing. In this course, Getting Started with Asynchronous Apex on Force.com, you'll learn how to use asynchronous Apex to help round out your skills as a Salesforce developer. First, you'll explore future methods and queueable jobs for accomplishing what triggers cannot. Next, you'll dive into scheduled Apex and batch Apex. Finally, you'll cover how to manage massive workloads. By the end of this course, you'll have the fundamental knowledge required to build your own asynchronous solutions to solve the challenges of your organization when it prefers to stay with Salesforce as a primary platform.
