Description

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: Prototyping UX Solutions with Playgrounds and Lightning Web Components, Barry Hughes and Don Robins discuss how to migrate prototypes created with the Salesforce Design System Starter Kit into ‘Composite’ Lightning Web Components in a Playground. The Lightning Web Components created in the Playground are then migrated to a Salesforce org with functionality added to retrieve and manipulate data. By the end of this course, developers will be able to work in teams to prototype and agree on functionality before developing solutions in a Salesforce org.

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 everyday by Salesforce customers. In this course, we challenged Barry Hughes, lead developer with Blue Wave Technology and Dublin Salesforce developer group leader, to show us how to effectively approach prototyping Salesforce Lightning Web Components, using both the Lighting Design System starter kit and Salesforce playgrounds. First, Barry briefly revisits his earlier Play by Play, Prototyping Aura Components, leveraging the Salesforce Lightning Design System starter kit, and explains what's changed with the introduction of the Lightning Web Component programming model. Next, he introduces in demos Salesforce playgrounds and shows how to use them to build out and decompose HTML mock pages into rudimentary composite Lightning Web Components. Then he migrates them into a Salesforce org, and along the way he reviews error resolution, eventing changes, case formatting, and the new one-way data binding model. Once migrated into Salesforce, he wires them up to the real data, using both Apex and the data service, and takes us on a deep dive, walking us through some alternative design patterns for working with parent and child datasets. By the time we're done, you'll be able to use his practical project code and wiki instructions to apply what you've learned to your own Lightning Web Component projects. So please join us for Prototyping UX Solutions in Salesforce with Playgrounds and Lightning Web Components. We hope you enjoy it.
