Refer to the practical guidance provided in this book to develop Salesforce custom applications in a more agile, collaborative, and resilient way using Salesforce Developer Experience (DX).
You will learn how to use the Salesforce Command Line Interface (CLI) to simplify working with projects, metadata, data and orgs. The CLI integrates with your development tools of choice such as Visual Studio Code, and CI/CD tools to implement DevOps pipelines. Readers will also gain an understanding of the package development model, which improves application quality and maintainability by grouping metadata into highly cohesive, loosely coupled containers.
Salesforce DX supports application development throughout the entire development lifecycle where a version control system, rather than a Salesforce org, is the source of truth. It became generally available in late 2017 and has now reached a stage of feature richness and stability that it is becoming more widely adopted.
Beginning Salesforce DX provides development teams with practical, how-to examples of using Salesforce DX that go beyond the Salesforce documentation. Commands and their parameters are described, including any gotchas, and the outcome of the commands on a Salesforce org is explained.
What You Will Learn

• Understand the key Salesforce DX concepts and the Salesforce CLI
• Work with Dev Hubs, projects, orgs, metadata and version control systems
