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 the Power of the Salesforce Command Line Interface, Keir Bowden and Don Robins discuss what exactly a command line interface is and the benefits of using one. Along the way we look at key commands to deploy metadata to scratch and production orgs, perform CRUD operations on data, execute single or multiple unit tests, either in isolation or as part of a deployment, and extend the CLI with a custom plugin. By the end of this course, you will have a solid grounding in the Salesforce CLI and understand how to incorporate it into your development process.
