Product description

Product Description

Advanced Apex Programming is neither a tutorial nor a book for beginners. Intended for developers who are already familiar with the Apex language, and experienced Java and C# developers who are moving to Apex, this book starts where the documentation leaves off.

Instead of trying to cover all of the features of the platform, Advanced Apex programming focuses entirely on the Apex language and core design patterns. You’ll learn how to truly think in Apex – to embrace limits and bulk patterns. You’ll see how to develop architectures for efficient and reliable trigger handling, and for asynchronous operations. You’ll discover that best practices differ radically depending on whether you are building software for a specific organization or for a managed package. And you’ll find approaches for incorporating testing and diagnostic code that can dramatically improve the reliability and deployment of Apex software, and reduce your lifecycle and support costs.

Based on his experience as a consultant, Salesforce MVP and architect of major AppExchange packages, Dan Appleman focuses on the real-world problems and issues that are faced by Apex developers every day, along with the obscure problems and surprises that can sneak up on you if you are unprepared.

This third edition contains updates through Summer 15 (API 34) along with significant new content on asynchronous design patterns, optimization and maintaining Apex applications.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional resource for those looking to add on to Apex development skills 3 January 2017
By William A Rohrbach - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a phenomenal book in terms of the amount of practical and applicable knowledge that you immediately can use in developing for the SalesForce platform. The author has put together an impressive amount of content in the book and the early chapter on triggers was exceptional. He offered a lot of great code samples that build up over the course of the chapter. I found this book to be a great resource for those that have some experience with Apex and SalesForce development already. If you are completely new to Apex and SalesForce then I would encourage you to use Trailhead from SalesForce to get some entry level knowledge and then use this book to take you to the next level.

I found Dan Appleman's books incredibly useful and insightful when I was working in Visual Basic Classic (VB6). The same when I moved to Java and the trend continues as I've moved to Salesforce. I picked up something I used at work in chapter 1.
