Play by Play: Developing Highly Reusable Salesforce Lightning Components for Lightning App Builder

by Don Robins and Steve Drucker

In this course, you’ll learn how to implement custom, highly-reusable, and flexible Lightning Components that can be easily combined into compelling, responsive pages that run in Lightning Experience and Salesforce Mobile.

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: Developing Highly Reusable Salesforce Lightning Components for Lightning App Builder, Steve Drucker and Don Robins demonstrate how to design and build loosely coupled Lightning Components for maximum reusability in both mobile and desktop Lightning pages. Learn about how to maximize the use of component events, while limiting the use of application events to specific cases where they’re truly required, build out additional components, tie them into a flexible architecture, and implement responsive design with the Lightning layout component. By the end of this course, you’ll have gained some great perspective around how you can apply this architectural approach and sample code to build your own reusable, responsive, and flexible Lightning Components, pages, and design templates.
