Join Sara Morgan for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Visualforce: Improving Performance.
- In this video, I'll describe what you should know before watching this course. In my first course, Developing with Visualforce, I assumed that you had no prior knowledge of Visualforce, and even Salesforce, for that matter. But in this course, we are going to jump right in to how you can optimize and enhance your Visualforce pages, so it will be necessary for you to understand some Visualforce basics in order to get the most out of this course. If you do not know a lot about Visualforce, then I suggest you watch this first course before continuing on.
As you will learn in this course, proper understanding of these basic web technologies is essential to being a good Visualforce developer, so the more you know about them up front, the better developer you will be, and you will also get more out of this course when we talk about them specifically. If you are brand new to web page development, you might want to first check out one of the lynda.com titles, HTML Essential Training by James Williamson, especially the later chapters on controlling styling, and basic scripting.
