Course Overview

Stony Point developed this Salesforce developer training class to help experienced software developers quickly learn how to become a Salesforce Developer. A student will learn the basics of Apex and Visualforce and best practices for integrating Salesforce with other systems. This class is an alternative to the Programmatic Development using Apex and Visualforce (DEX450) class offered by Salesforce. The Stony Point version of the class offers relevant, real world Salesforce programming examples.

A student successfully completing this class will be well prepared for the Salesforce Certified Platform Developer I exam.

This class is delivered by a senior instructor with many years of real world programming experience and will cover the following topics:

  • Understanding the software development lifecycle on the platform and utilizing the Metadata API, Unmanaged Packages, Managed Packages and Change Sets

  • Visualforce fundamentals, including but not limited to: Consuming standard and custom controllers and controller extensions using Visualforce, utilizing components within Visualforce pages, and creating custom Visualforce components.
