Course Overview
(Music) 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 challenge Peter Knolle, Salesforce MVP and solutions architect, to help us understand the full collection of base Lightning components, and to provide some guidance to help developers leverage them in their Lightning application development. First, Peter walks us through a high-level inventory of the base component library and classifies the different sets of components available. He digs into each component set, exploring both visual and non-visual components, process and workflow components like Path and Flow, and form components for data entry, including action buttons and the file upload component. Next, he demonstrates the Lightning layout components and shows some advanced nested layouts, clarifying concepts required to effectively implement responsive UI behavior. Along the way, he shows off the data table component and its extended functionality, such as column sorting, inline editing, and actions. And he wraps up with a deep dive into the various record form components that allow custom data management without the use of Apex or even the Data Service. By the time we're done, you'll have a solid understanding of the diverse collection of functionality available, and a great starting point for implementing base components in your own Lightning applications. So whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced Salesforce developer, please join us for Building Salesforce Apps with Base Lightning Components. We hope you enjoy it.
