Improving Visualforce Performance – New Online Course Released

Improving Visualforce Perfomance

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:

  1. Reducing or Eliminating View State
  2. Evaluating SOQL for Efficiency
  3. Reducing use of Action Tags
  4. Taking Advantage of the StandardSetController
  5. Incorporating Best Practices with JavaScript, HTML, CSS and Images

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.
