Starting with an introduction to the model, key features, and advantages of the platform, this book delves into the design and development of applications on the platform. Particular emphasis is given to building the data model and user interfaces of the application, designing the application for multiple users, and protecting data related to your application.

This book also covers the most important features of the 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, e-mail service related features of the platform, and deploying a application.
