  • 11:00 AM – 11:20 AM
  • Moscone West, Developer Theater
  • Beginner
  • Sales Cloud, Salesforce Platform
Using a version control system for the first time can be intimidating. However, learning just a few Git commands can go a long way towards keeping track of code changes and restoring previous versions when bugs are introduced. Armed with just a few basic commands, developers can take the first steps towards using Git with Salesforce. Starting from an existing org, the session will walk through creating a Git repository, creating a branch, committing changes, and pushing those changes to a remote repository.

Crafting Flexible APIs in Apex Using Custom Metadata

Integrations need to evolve as an application’s data needs grow. Don’t get stuck rewriting your code to handle new data, future proof your integration by using Custom Metadata! A properly architected and configurable API can greatly reduce maintenance costs and allow Admins to own the configuration of a custom API integration. Attendees will learn how to create a custom and configurable APEX REST API that accepts a JSON payload from a webhook and uses Custom Metadata and Entity Definitions to dynamically map data to Salesforce Objects.

  • Beginner

With recent enhancements to the Lightning Data Service, creating a basic form that can create, view, or edit a record has never been easier, and it doesn’t require writing a single line of Apex. In this session, we will focus on an introduction to the Lightning Data Service, the advantages of using it, and how it can save development time. You will learn how to make use of the new recordForm component, and creative ways of using it within the Lightning Experience to boost usability and productivity.
