Salesforce.com’s developer workbooks and cheat sheets consistently fly off the shelves at our conferences such as Dreamforce and Cloudstock at Cloudforce. You’ll find that our workbooks provide easy-to-understand walkthroughs of our key products and features, and that our cheat sheets are handy, quick references that you can use in your daily work.
We’ve published three new workbooks and one new cheat sheet, just in time for Cloudstock at Cloudforce on March 15 in San Francisco. At Cloudstock, you’ll be able to get hard copies of these workbooks and cheat sheets, as well as many others, for free:
- The Force.com Integration Workbook builds on the Force.com Workbook, and teaches you how to integrate your existing applications with the Force.com platform. Several short tutorials describe how to integrate third-party systems and applications with Force.com using the Force.com Web Services APIs, Apex, and OAuth authentication.
- The Apex Workbook introduces you to the Apex programming language through a set of tutorials. You’ll learn the fundamentals of Apex and how you can use it on the Force.com platform to add custom business logic through triggers, unit tests, scheduled Apex, batch Apex, REST Web services, and Visualforce controllers.
- The Cloud Flow Designer Workbook gives you a quick introduction to designing flows through a series of four tutorials. You’ll become familiar with some of the basic elements of the Cloud Flow Designer, including creating and looking up records, configuring decisions and outcomes, using Apex as a plug-in to enhance functionality, and embedding a flow in a Visualforce page to make it available to users.
- The REST API Cheat Sheet summarizes the most important aspects of the REST API, which you can use to create, retrieve, update, or delete records in Force.com from any external system that supports REST-based Web services.
Existing workbooks and cheat sheets are also updated for Spring ’12. So download them now, and become even more successful with our products!
