Salesforce.com is best known as a web based Sales and Service application that touts itself as cloud based Software as a Service CRM. A more companies come to rely on it every day; there is a growing opportunity and need for traditional developers to understand how to develop on the platform. Not as visible is the metadata driven application development framework upon which the CRM features are built, and the ever growing collection of services provided by its Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). Both allow for extremely rapid application development, as well as sophisticated integration with external systems. This course will provide a perspective of the platform's depth and breadth, and show the big picture of what it can really do, and what you can do with it.
