Since Salesforce's announcement of its new-age platform, companies large and small have been wondering if it makes sense to make the switch from Salesforce Classic to Salesforce Lightning. Many CTOs have made the point: "If it's not broken, why fix it?" Inherent in this statement is the implicit understanding that along with the change-over come all the risks of adopting a bleeding-edge technology as well as the need to retrain their users in the new technology and UI.
This month's DUG session will uncover the strategies that you must execute upon to move your Org to Lightning, the immediate advantages gained, the justification to your company's leadership and the dangers of remaining with Classic. I'll start with 'how you must think of Lightning'. That is, what is the paradigm shift in a developer's thinking that is necessary to get there from here. I'll also cover the architectural skills that you need to master immediately... before you undertake the transition process, and finally I'll go over the 'gotchas' that you could run into if you step wrong in your transition.
So, what is Lightning? How do I manage the change? What is the paradigm change from Classic? What happened to my tabs? Where are my buttons? What in goodness' name is a Component? All will be answered at this month's Dallas Salesforce Developers Group meeting.
Pssst. Secret agenda. Don't tell anyone...Your DUG leadership will have just returned from the MVP summit and Midwest Dreamin' in Chicago. To the extent that we can skate around our NDAs, we will bring you the insiders' preview of what you'll see at Dreamforce 2016. Be in the know, plan on attending this months Dallas DUG meeting!
