Publication of My 2nd Book- Learning Force.com Application Development

Image
Cloud computing has made significant changes to the IT/software development industry. Cloud platforms are one of the important directions of cloud computing.

Book Review - Visualforce Development Cookbook

Image
I have started to work on Force.com platform on April, 2011. At the beginning, I haven’t any knowledge about Salesforce.com technologies. I have identified the Force.com discussion board as a home for a newbie since there are lots of experts to answer our technical issues. I found “Bob Buzzard” (Keir Bowden) in the Force.com discussion board and he was playing with the technical issues. He helped me a lotof my technical issues. He is an answering machine. He has a tremendous blog. I followed his way and I have used his achievements as a reference.
It is with great privilege that I write this review of Visualforce Development Cookbook which authored by Keir Bowden. It is aimed at developers who have some experience on Visualforce and packs over 75 recipes in the 300+ pages.
This book covers all the techniques that we use in day to day developments in Visualforce. Sometimes we struggle to come up with a particular solution. Sometime we will waste considerable time to sort out the particul…
