by Adam Olshansky and Don Robins

In this course, you’ll learn what Lightning Experience is, the challenges and benefits of migrating, and how you can use it to your advantage in your Salesforce org.

What you'll learn

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.
