Formulas are an essential part of every Salesforce admin and developer toolkit, but one that is often learned piecemeal - leaving knowledge gaps that can result in errors and corrupted data. In this course, Formula Fundamentals in Salesforce, you'll learn the fundamentals of formulas from the ground up. First, you'll explore field and data types, operators, and of course, functions. Next, you'll find deep coverage of logical operators - perhaps the most common source of formula bugs. Finally, you'll learn more advanced concepts such as formula limits and formula testing and validation. By the end of this course, you will be able to add formulas to your Salesforce admin and developer toolkit.

Course Overview
Of all the things you need to know to work on the sales force platform, none is more important, or more pervasive, than formulas. They appear everywhere, from fields, to validation rules, to processes, to workflows, to visual force markup. The list goes on. Most people start learning formulas by looking at examples, or searching online for the right formulate to solve a problem, and that's okay, but formulas are such a core technology that it's worth taking the time to learn them properly, to really understand how they work. My name is Dan Appleman, and most people know me from my book and courses on Apex programming, coding, but I'll let you in on a little secret, and don't let it intimidate you. Formulas are code. Simple code, but code nonetheless. For many declarative developers, it's all the code they'll ever need. For others, it is the start of a journey that ends up with them becoming super admins, or even advanced developers. My goal in this course is to help you on that journey, whether you are a sales force admin just starting out with declarative development, or a super admin who is looking for deeper understanding, this course will help you on your journey.
