Announcing the Salesforce Handbook

Salesforce has some great articles at and the community has chipped in with some excellent content but there is still something missing.  There’s a beginning book for Salesforce users ( for Dummies) and an advanced development book (Development with the Platform) but there is no comprehensive guide for analysts and developers just coming on to the platform. This is the niche that Wes and I want to fill with our new book:

The Salesforce Handbook
A newcomer’s guide to building applications on and the Platform

We are targeting this book for business owners, analysts and developers  just getting started. Just think of all the new Vmforce Java developers that will be investigating the platform in the coming months! So if your boss walks into your office and says, “Let’s look at this thing and see if we can build something”. We want this to be a reference that you can pick up and essentially find out everything you need to know about Salesforce from a high level with links to other articles, sample code, blogs, Salesforce docs, etc. that interest you.


let us know where we can find the book


Will do :)


We'll be updating the blog as we go along, and you can follow the book at
