Here are my charts from my presentation today in Banff, updated to clarify the difference in capability between an Apex API call and an Apex Code trigger; further updated to reflect the recent elimination of single-row triggers.
My goals in this talk:
- explain why On Demand platforms are relevant to general-purpose developers
- show the ease and capability of working with Apex Code and related tools
- get developers thinking about application portfolio governability as an issue in platform choice
Please let me know what I didn’t include in this talk that you’d need to hear, or see, to think about building your next application (whether in-house or commercial offering) as an On Demand project.
