Last week at Dreamforce ’13, the salesforce.com Developer Relations team introduced a number of new books, including Visualforce in Practice. I had the opportunity to be a coauthor for this book along with some of the best minds in the Force.com developer community, including Michael Floyd, Don Robins, Matt Lacey, Ryan Sieve, Peter Gruhl, Dan Appleman and Lior Gotersman. It was a fun project, and I’m proud of the final product.
The book is intended for intermediate Visualforce developers, and provides some great examples that you can apply in your own Force.com development.
If you did not get a chance to pick up Visualforce in Practice at Dreamforce, an electronic version will be released shortly.
The topics covered by Visualforce in Practice include:
- Thinking in Visualforce
