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.
