Develop on the Customer 360 Platform

Learning Objectives

After completing this unit, you’ll be able to:

  • Describe how code extends the functionality of the Customer 360 Platform.

An API-First Platform

When we build features on the Customer 360 Platform, we take an API-first approach, which means that we provide robust API access to just about everything on the platform.

As always, trust is our number one value. The platform supports OAuth standards to protect your data.

You'll find all of the resources we mentioned in the video at the bottom of this unit.

A Modern Developer Experience

Salesforce tools make developing on the Salesforce Customer 360 Platform simple. You get integrated, end-to-end lifecycle management designed for high-performance agile development. You can develop in single-use scratch orgs, work with code in a version-control system directly from the command line, and implement continuous integration to streamline your development process.

The Customer 360 Platform is built with the Lightning Component framework, which allows developers to build on skills they already have to create apps, user interfaces, and reusable custom components in Salesforce. The Lightning Component framework makes it easy to work with the latest web standards while providing specialized features to work with Salesforce data and metadata.

Our developer experience is flexible, which means that your team can build together, using tools they already know and love.
