In our second post in our ICYMI (In Case You Missed It) from TrailheaDX’18 series, our eyes are on all things Salesforce DX. Salesforce DX changes the way you build apps with an integrated end-to-end lifecycle. With scratch orgs, the Salesforce CLI, and reimagined packaging, our modernized developer experience truly enables and empowers developers to build together.

Salesforce DX was a hot topic at TDX18 and was highlighted by the keynote Continuous Development on the Lightning Platform. We also had quite a few sessions that focused on specific areas of Salesforce DX. Watch five of the top-rated sessions and learn about what you can do in Salesforce DX!
