Salesforce Bootcamp Part 2 - App Building Fundamentals

Salesforce Bootcamp Part 2 - App Building Fundamentals

Salesforce Career Success Bootcamp - App Building Fundamentals Pack - Build a Time Tracker Application.

This course is the second course of my Salesforce Career Success Bootcamp Series of courses - there are a total of 11 courses in this Bootcamp Series. 

This course, the App Building Fundamentals Pack, is intended for someone that is trying to land their first Salesforce job and have been told that they lack the appropriate level of experience. No certification or prior Salesforce experience is required. 

We create several different applications in the Bootcamp series, and this course is where we build the first one. Also in this course, we create the foundation for additional apps that we will complete in later courses of this Bootcamp series.

We will be creating a simpler, utility type application in this module - a Time Tracker App.

As we progress through this course, we will be creating custom objects, fields, validation rules, page layouts, record types, and more.

The end goal of this course is for you to come away with a firm understanding of the anatomy of an app on the Salesforce platform and gain hands-on experience in building an app.

This experience will help you expand your knowledge of the Salesforce platform, and also to come away with real-world applications that you can use in your own life – whether in an existing job, or helping you land you first, or next, Salesforce job.

I surveyed my students to find out what the biggest challenges were that they faced in launching their own Salesforce career. The most reported obstacle to starting a Salesforce career was a lack of experience. I created this Salesforce Career Success Bootcamp Series to empower you to 'Make Your Own Experience' rather than passively waiting for someone else to bestow your first Salesforce job randomly.
