Play by Play: Prototyping UX Solutions in Salesforce with Playgrounds and Lightning Web Components

by Barry Hughes and Don Robins

This course provides updated prototyping techniques for Salesforce using Lightning Web Components and Playgrounds - both generally available in Spring 2019.

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: 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.
