Cloud platforms allow developers to create apps and run them on the cloud, including platforms used in building on-demand applications and platforms as a service (PaaS). No-one can dispute the sheer power and breadth of the Force.com cloud development platform and its influence on thousands of developers across the world. The staggering number of technologies on offer can cause confusion among developers when it comes to using them to build real-world applications.

Particular emphasis is given to building the data model and user interfaces of the Force.com application, designing the Force.com application for multiple users, and protecting data related to your application.

This book also covers the most important features of the Force.com platform such as preserving data quality with validation rules, automating the business process by using workflows and approval processes, data management operations and tools, reports and dashboards, email service related features of the Force.com platform, and deploying a Force.com application. Through the course of the book, you will learn not only declarative (point-click) developments, but also programmatic developments such as building custom pages using Visualforce and custom coding using Apex. By the end of the book, you will have learned about the Force.com tools including the Force.com IDE and standard Visualforce components that are used to develop build Visualforce pages.
