Visualforce helps users to build sophisticated, custom user interfaces that can be hosted natively on the platform. It achieves this with the use of a tag-based language, similar to HTML. These add-on applications are built using Apex (a proprietary Java-like programming language for and Visualforce (an XML-like syntax for building user interfaces in HTML or Flex).

Visualforce Developer’s Guide is a mini [again this implies the book is very brief, perhaps it would be best just to include the page count rather than implying how short it is] guide to developing a custom UI interface. It gives examples to help the reader understand and use Visualforce development tools in their custom UI interfaces. Throughout the book, readers will learn how to reuse the code with the help of custom components, and minimize the Visualforce and Apex code through Visualforce dynamic binding.

Visualforce Developer's Guide introduces the reader to Visualforce, giving them an understanding of the MVC model and the Visualforce architecture. Special importance is given to building a rich user interface by leveraging JavaScript, jQuery, CSS, and HTML with Visualforce.
