Force.com is a powerful platform, complete with a full-fledged programming language, Apex, on par with Java and C#. As a Force.com developer, it is important to understand when to turn to Apex, and what problems are best solved using programmatic solutions. This course delves into many different patterns and scenarios where using Apex is critical, including bulk processing, trigger patterns, wrappers and collections, and working with queues. With a good understanding of these patterns you will have the confidence to fearlessly go forth and develop industrial-strength applications on the Force.com platform.
