I am proud to announce that yesterday my online course for lynda.com, “Improving Visualforce Performance” was released. The course is a little over 2 hours long and it focuses on what you need to know to get the most out of your Visualforce performance. It is not a beginning level course (like the first one I did about Developing for Visualforce).
I based the course on a post I did over a year ago called, the “Top 5 Tips for Improving Visualforce Pages“. That post has been the most popular post on this blog for sometime, so I knew this was a good topic.
The course goes into great detail (with examples) of all the tips I covered in that original post. I spent a lot of time developing the examples and scripts for this course and I have to admit I am pretty proud of it. The 5 tips it covers include:
- Reducing or Eliminating View State
- Evaluating SOQL for Efficiency
- Reducing use of Action Tags
- Taking Advantage of the StandardSetController
If you are interested, lynda.com offers a free 10 day trial that you can access here. And until Monday, August 24th, they are offering 30% off the first billing for monthly and annual subscription plans.
I would love to know what you think of the course and what recommendations you have for future course as I plan to be doing more of them.
