Lightning Developer Week - Jaipur Developer User Group

Salesforce recently organized a global event Lightning Developer Week where over 80 user groups participated from all over the globe. Target was to make everyone (salesforce developer and admins) comfortable with Salesforce1 Lightning.

Salesforce1 Lightning lets everyone build apps very quickly and it's very easy, so it's helpful for not only developers but admins as well. Lightning delivers a framework and new set of tools by which anyone can build application quickly irrespective of the experience level.

Jaipur Developer User Group also participated in this global event. If you are not already a part of it, then do it right away to be updated with the latest news on events we organize in Jaipur.

It was a co-indecent that Lightning Week was going on and it was raining heavy in Jaipur, besides that around 60 developers show up which was beyond my expectations. Me as the organizer was very happy to see this enthusiasm of developers working in Jaipur. Not only Jaipur as few were from very far. We thank all who joined us and made this event a great success.

After the introductory session Bhawani Shankar Sharma gave presentation on Lightning Introduction. He explained the basic so well that every one was so happy after attending the session. It was like they are already Lightning experts.

After Bhawani, Gaurav Kheterpal took over and smashed away. He has a great quality of keeping the audience engaged in his session. He dived deep in Lightning and showed what exactly we can do with it.

Now it was too much of lightning (just kidding) so Abhinav Gupta ( MVP) was on stage speaking on how to build chrome extensions in Salesforce. He always speaks so polite and in simple language which makes easy for all to understand better. It was really an awesome session.

After all these awesome sessions, it was time for some good food and to say good bye :-)

Special thanks to April Kyle Nassi and Kavindra Patel as without their support it would never be possible.

Visualforce Code Generator - Coding Via Point And Click

First of all thank you so much for such a great response on my previous post of Visualforce Code Generator.

After receiving some great feedback from all of you and specially from Patt Peterson (Developer Evangelist Architect at Salesforce) we've done some enhancements in it. Now it will be way more easier for developers and admins who want to create Visualforce page without writing any code and just by points and clicks.

At many instances we've to create edit or detail page of our objects (custom or native) so we can override them with some of our enhancements included in it, and we (specially me) find this very tedious. So I've created a utility where you just need to follow the following steps :

1) Install our package from AppExchange

2) Open our app "Code Generator"

3) Click on Tab "Code Generator"

4) Select your object > Select record type for which you want to create the page > Then select layout (Edit or Detail) > Then give your page a Name > Then you have two options, either select all fields to get all fields on your page or select some of you want limited fields (please note mandatory fields will be checked default)

5) Once done click on "Proceed"

Now we are ready, as your visualforce page is inserted in your org. You can now go to Setup >  Build >  Develop >  Pages and change if you want.

See it's that simple to install and use. Really looking forward to your feedback on our AppExchange listing.

Happy coding with just "Point and Click"!!
