This is a one day class that takes place on Saturday, July 16th, 2016 from 10:00AM - 4:30PM with a break for lunch.

In this class, you'll get a crash course in app building on Salesforce's "low-code" platform. Using Salesforce's point & click tools, you will create a simple employee-facing business app that runs in both a web browser and on a mobile device. All without writing any code!

What this class will cover:

• Overview of mobile app development
• Crash course in app building concepts including data modeling, user interfaces, business logic, reports, and dashboards
• Hands-on Trailhead (https://developer.salesforce.com/trailhead/) project building an app in your developer environment that is yours to keep and build upon
• Resources for future self-guided learning online

Wait, but…?

Why learn Salesforce? The job market for Salesforce professionals is growing and this is a great time to jump in. For more information, check out these Resources (https://admin.salesforce.com/resources).

What about license fees? Purchasing Salesforce applications for your business requires user licenses, but the tools for learning to develop with Salesforce are free:

• Developer Edition (https://developer.salesforce.com/signup) account (it’s yours, no one will call to sell you anything)

• Salesforce1 Mobile App (AppStore and Google Play)

• Trailhead (https://developer.salesforce.com/trailhead/), the fun free way to learn Salesforce

What about coding? A lot of app building can be done without code, but a robust enterprise application always needs some code. If you want to learn more about coding with Salesforce’s front end and back end tools, explore the Developer Beginner Trail (https://developer.salesforce.com/trailhead/trail/force_com_dev_beginner) in Trailhead.



This class takes place on Saturday, July 16th from 10:00AM - 4:30 PM with a break for lunch.

Lunch will be provided.
