Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Dan Appleman, and welcome to my course, Salesforce Development: Getting Started. I've been developing on the Salesforce platform since 2007, even wrote a book about it, Advanced Apex Programming in Salesforce. I'm also a Salesforce MVP and am incredibly excited about this opportunity to help you on your first steps to building solutions on the platform, whether you are an admin building Clicks, not Code solutions, a beginning programmer who wants to develop on the platform, or a veteran software developer who is new to Salesforce. This course is about getting started, the very first steps you need to take to prepare yourself to work on the Salesforce platform. After a quick introduction to the concept of a Salesforce organization, you'll begin by signing up for a developer org and performing some common and essential configuration steps. Next, you'll learn about org‑based and source‑based development, and learn how to install and configure Salesforce DX and why it is important for declarative developers building workflows, processes, and flows, as well as software developers. Finally, you'll see Salesforce DX in action and become familiar with the most common commands. By the end of this course, you'll know the mechanics of developing on the platform, and you'll be set up to follow along with any future courses you take on Salesforce, whether it is software or declarative, and you'll be ready to apply modern software development processes to both. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Salesforce development and Salesforce DX with the course Salesforce Development: Getting Started at Pluralsight.
