Getting Started With SFDX Part II -Triggers

In our second installment we solve a Trailhead module using SFDX source driven development. And also get into some Git fundamentals. We will develop our solution in a scratch org and then deploy it to our DevHub to pass the Trailhead Challenge. I also make a few embarrassing mistakes along the way.


Public Static Void…. I give up

One of the things that frustrated me when I was starting to learn to code was the syntax – or grammar- around creating a method in Apex or Java. I felt like every tutorial sort of blew past it and I was stuck trying to remember and understand what combination of cryptic terms to string together. I have tried to touch on this in other videos. But I don’t think I did a good job. This time all we are going to talk about are those few words that are part of every method in Apex you will ever right.

Getting Started With SFDX – Part I

I am very excited to share this series. We are going to take on the Trailhead Apex Triggers module. But we will go it with SFDX style development. I think one of the best ways get comfortable with SFDX is to use it in your Trailhead challenges. So will be creating a git and Github repository, doing our development in a scratch org and pushing the code to our dev hub for the Trailhead challenge evaluation.

Apex Loop Structures Part I

While and Do While Loops

I recently had a request for a video on Apex loop structures. Loops are a fundamental part of almost every program. To keep the videos shorter I decided to make one with the While and Do While Loop. Part II will have the For Loop, Enhanced For Loop and the SOQL For Loop.
