The new Lightning Experience combines three major components—Lightning Design System, Lightning App Builder, and Lightning Components—to enable anyone to quickly and easily create beautiful, modern enterprise apps. If you wish to take up the challenges that Lightning throws at you head-on, then look no further because this practical course will be your faithful companion and ensure that you make best use of the Lightning platform.
With this practical course, you'll initially explore the art of working with standard components and build a basic layout for the application. Then, you will add more advanced components using the Lightning framework. Finally, you will also build and migrate reports and dashboards to make your app look more professional. Than you will learn how to roll out to Lightning in an existing organization and work with some really amazing point-and-click features to enhance your application’s user interface. Finally you will create custom Lightning components and custom Lightning events and communicate between components using events, make calls from Lightning components to remote methods, and handle server responses asynchronously using callback functions.
Contents and Overview
This training program includes 3 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.
The first course, Salesforce Lightning Recipes starts by walking you through the three major Lightning components and will help you enable and configure a Lightning solution. You will explore the art of working with standard components and build a basic layout for the application. Then, you will add more advanced components using the Lightning framework. Finally, you will also build and migrate reports and dashboards to make your app look more professional. Towards the end of the course, you’ll make use of the Design System to work with Salesforce data and lay out the entire page with the components that you’ve built, before integrating Visualforce in your application.
The second course, Hands-On Salesforce Lightning Development entails all out-of-the-box functionality available in Lightning Experience. You will learn how to roll out to Lightning in an existing organization and work with some really amazing point-and-click features to enhance your application’s user interface. Lightning App Builder gives you the power to build apps visually, without code, quicker than ever before using custom-built Lightning components. By the end of this course, you’ll be able to build efficient apps based on the new Lightning experience and make your Lightning apps available in the Lightning App Builder.
The third course, Complete Salesforce Lightning Application Development will show you how to enable, create, and configure a Lightning solution. You will dig into component attributes, expressions, value providers (and attribute data types and other aspects of attribute definitions) and create an efficient component via attributes and expressions. Then you will create a Lightning-enabled Apex Controller that exposes data and logic to the client application. Next, you will create a Lightning application in the Developer Console, use static resources in your Lightning Application, and preview your Lightning application in the browser. Finally, you will create custom Lightning components and custom Lightning events and communicate between components using events. You will then learn how to create Apex methods that can be called remotely from Lightning component code, make calls from Lightning components to remote methods, and handle server responses asynchronously using callback functions. Towards the end of the course, you'll learn how to manage the state of your Lightning application using the URL's hashtag and use Lightning's Component event and Application event.
