Book Review - Visualforce Development Cookbook



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 lot of 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 particular issue. This book has solutions with step-by-step instructions for such technical issues. For an example, we have already developed Visualforce pages with JavaScripts and jQuery. But we are getting issues when developing them. This book has the recipes for Visualforce developments with JavaScripts and jQuery. It will help us as guidance to Visualforce developers with JavaScripts and jQuery.

My favorite chapters are Visualforce chart, Javascript, Force.com sites and jQuery mobile. There were lots of things to learn.

Still, there are few books on Visualforce and this book covers almost all the cookbook recipes. I would recommend this book for those who have some experience on Visualforce developments.


Disclaimer - I haven't purchased this book - I was sent a copy to review by the publisher.
