Admins and SFDX

The sfdx command line can do some awesome stuff.  It can login to multiple systems, move metadata between orgs, run tests, export records, be used to create reports…this sounds like stuff admins do.  All too often, sfdx is focused around the developer, and doesn’t explain its usefulness to admins.  With the rise of source control and CI/CD, admins will find themselves more tightly integrated into a development team.  It’s time for admins to get into sfdx too.  In a hands on demo, we’ll use sfdx to move metadata, automate creating a hundred new fields and extract data for custom reporting.


Building User Customized Apps

Stop telling your Salesforce users how to work.  Instead of building to the lowest common denominator across your organization, create solutions that offer end user customizations and persistent preferences.  By using custom settings, CMTs, visibility rules and a few other tricks, you’ll discover that you can satisfy everyone’s needs by putting the user in control of how Salesforce looks and behaves.  This session will feature content for admins, declarative developers and programmers alike.


Your Unit Tests Need Work

Everyone knows Salesforce requires 75% code coverage.  However, just because the code is covered, doesn’t mean it’s really being tested.  Can you delete some, or all, of your Apex code and still see passing tests?  I’ll cover the three A’s of proper testing, look at unit tests for declarative functionality and demonstrate Test Driven Development inside Salesforce.  Although aimed towards developers, this session should be understandable by advanced admins and members of a software development team.  If you have any aspirations to become a developer one day, be sure to check out this session.  Get your code coverage to 100%, build a comprehensive automated test suite and put yourself in a position to do real CI/CD.
