Three years ago we released the first edition of Fundamentals, the quintessential introduction to building apps with the point-and-click features of the platform.

This year, author Chris McGuire has done it again — the latest edition includes more features and functionality than ever before, including a newly expanded final chapter that shows how even non-programmers can use Visualforce and sites to create richer, more powerful functionality in their applications.

Other newly incorporated features include:

  • The enhanced page layout editor
  • The approval process visualizer
  • The Modify All Records and View All Records permissions
  • Delegated admin groups
  • Platform Edition

Anyone can access Fundamentals online, or Developer Force members can download a PDF and the sample data files at
