Play by Play: Understanding Lightning Web Components for Salesforce Developers
This course provides an in-depth review of the new Lightning Web Component programming model with attention paid to helping map an existing understanding of Aura components onto the concepts that exist in the new framework programming model.
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: Understanding Lightning Web Components for Salesforce Developers, Chuck Liddell and Don Robins treat the topic like an onion, peeling back one layer at time. First they introduce Lightning Web Components (LWC) conceptually, and then demo some simple syntax and examples. Next, they dig into conversation around comparing and contrasting Aura versus LWCs, delve into more abstract concepts and advanced thinking, and finally explore some quite complex use cases in Aura and how they apply (or not) in LWCs. By the end of this course, you’ll have a solid understanding of the new Lightning Web Component model, how you can preserve any investment in the existing Aura Component model, and when you would leverage each model in your Salesforce application development.
