Developing with Visualforce Course just went Live!!!

The Visualforce course I designed for Lynda.com, Developing with Visualforce just went live. You can access it here and even if you are not a member, you can view 4 videos for free.  DevlopingWithVisuaforce

I am pretty proud of the course. I spent a lot of time trying to think through the best way to teach this stuff to beginners. I hope that I succeeded in some small way. I would love to know what you think, good or bad. I don’t mind getting bad feedback because it helps me to get better.

This is just the beginning too. I plan on doing a whole series of courses. This one was an introductory course, so keep that in mind if you are already very familiar with Visualforce. I stressed using declarative solutions and use of standard controllers whenever possible. I really do believe in the KISS (Keep it Simple Stupid) methodology.

Check out one of the free videos Lynda.com makes available:

Oh, and this is the info on the course:

Course Description:
Start developing custom interfaces for the Force.com platform (including Salesforce) using Visualforce. Sara Morgan walks you through the basics of Visualforce, explores its MVC backbone, issues instructions for downloading a free developer edition of the software, and helps you decide if Visualforce is right for your organization.

Along the way, you’ll encounter a series of coding challenges that let you practice and expand your Visualforce coding skills.

What is Visualforce?
Registering for an account
Building a Visualforce page
Building a tabbed page
