Course Overview
Welcome to this Salesforce play by play with Pluralsight. Salesforce Play by Play is an interactive series where we sit down with Salesforce experts such as MVPs, consultants, developers, and architects to discuss common challenges faced every day by Salesforce customers. In this course, we challenged Dan Appleman, MVP and author of the book, Advanced Apex Programming, to advise how he would guide a team towards choosing how to adopt trigger design patterns to resolve problems and ensure both stability and sustainability. First, Dan sets the stage with a discussion evaluating the issues, options, and risks associated with adopting trigger framework implementations. He points out the benefits of simply adopting trigger design patterns in an incremental fashion with very little effort. Next, he demonstrates various issues associated with unmanaged trigger execution order, errant DML operations, multiple triggers on the same object, and issues around governor limits resulting from re-entrancy. That's triggers invoking declarative processes that invoke more triggers. He shows off some simple coding patterns that can help resolve these common issues, and you'll watch as he walks through how declarative constructs such as workflows and processes can communicate with code and vice versa. By the time we're done, you'll have gained a solid understanding of how you can achieve enormous benefits in terms of reliability and performance with very little effort by applying simple design patterns to improve your Apex codebase and declarative configuration. So whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced Salesforce developer, please join us for Adopting Trigger Design Patterns in Existing Salesforce Orgs. We hope you enjoy it!
