With Salesforce1, if you’re a Salesforce developer, you’re now also a mobile developer. To help you on your journey of Salesforce1 development, check out the Salesforce1 App Developer Guide (HTML | PDF). This is the book that I worked on along with many other talented folks here at Salesforce.
The great thing about this book, if I do say so myself, is that it’s all task based. You learn all about Salesforce1 development by doing. Of course, there’s lots of conceptual information in there, if you’re interested. Whether you use the declarative tools, code, or a combination of both, this will get you started with Salesforce1 development.
Each chapter has code examples, and you can download the accompanying code for the book as a package from GitHub. Some of the things you’ll learn include how to:
- Make a Visualforce page available from the navigation menu
- Create a Visualforce custom action and make a Visualforce page accessible from the publisher
- Create a canvas custom action and make a canvas app accessible from the publisher
- Call an action from your code using a REST API call
- Extend the Salefsorce1 user interface with Flexible Pages
As you may have read in a previous post, there was a full library of developer books and other materials available at Dreamforce. If you weren’t able to make it to the conference, don’t worry, they’re all available online here.
If you’re a Salesforce developer, be sure to check out this book and start taking your users into the mobile world!
