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 MVP 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 Salesforce MVP, Bonny Hinners, to show us how you can promote adoption of the new Lightning experience in your company, using your existing Visualforce pages. Bonny walks us through some basic steps to help make custom Visualforce pages look right at home in the new user interface, including how to apply the newest Salesforce UI look and feel using the built-in Lightning design system. Along the way, we'll explore some of the new approaches you'll need to pay attention to with buttons, actions, and process automation, and you'll learn how to surface your newly-styled Visualforce pages in Lightning page layouts and actions. Please join us for Moving Visualforce Pages to Lightning. We hope you enjoy it.
