Play by Play is a series in which top technologists work through a problem in real time, unrehearsed, and unscripted. In this course, Play By Play: Evaluating Lightning Migration for Your Salesforce Org, Adam Olshansky and Don Robins demonstrate building a migration strategy for a move from Salesforce Classic to the Lightning Experience. Learn about many of the more powerful new features available to Salesforce customers that exist only in Lightning, walk through the new Setup Menu and Object Manager, migrate a Classic app to Lightning, and get a quick overview of the Lightning App Builder and Lightning Components. By the end of this course, you’ll have great perspective on why you would want to begin a migration sooner rather than later, as well as some considerations that you may want to analyze for possible impact to your users before jumping in without a clear migration strategy.

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. We'll be learning while discussing concepts and debating tradeoffs on various approaches to solving real-world problems. We learn by reviewing system configurations or writing code, and then exploring the benefits of any particular solution. In this course, we challenge Adam Olshansky, Salesforce MVP and developer at Google, to help us build a migration strategy for a move from Salesforce Classic to the Lightning Experience. First, Adam clarifies exactly what the Lightning Experience is, and why Salesforce is so focused on it. He makes the case for why customers should seriously consider moving their orgs from Classic to Lightning, and introduces some simple out-of-the-box tools provided by Salesforce to help evaluate the potential effort, as well as help ensure that they'll be taking advantage of all the new functionality Lightning has to offer. You'll watch as he walks through the Lightning Readiness report and demonstrates many of the more powerful new features available to Salesforce customers that exist only in Lightning, and not in Classic. Along the way, we explore the new Kanban view, paths, the favorites feature, new navigation features, and the new Lightning Report Builder and dashboards. You'll see him walk through the new Setup menu and Object Manager. He'll migrate a Classic app to Lightning, and you'll get a quick overview of the Lightning App Builder and Lightning components. We'll also review why as a developer migrating to Lightning will help expand your web development programming skills to make you more marketable to potential employers. By the time we're done, you'll have gained some great perspective on just why you may want to begin that migration sooner rather than later, as well as some considerations that you may want to seriously analyze for possible impact to your users before jumping in without a clear migration strategy. So, please join us for Evaluating Lightning Migration for your Salesforce Org. We hope you enjoy it.
