Mastering Salesforce Devops: A Practical Guide to Building Trust While Delivering Innovation

Rate this book
This practical guide brings DevOps principles to Salesforce development. It fits together two major movements within the IT world: the movement to Software/Platform as a Service (SaaS/PaaS), and the DevOps movement. While SaaS and PaaS allow companies to invest in their core competencies rather than maintain their own infrastructure, the goal of DevOps is to optimize the process of delivering software innovation and value.

The release of Salesforce DX in late 2017 unlocks the possibility of a true DevOps workflow on Salesforce. But DevOps is new to the Salesforce world and there is not a widespread understanding of its goals and methods, and so adoption of Salesforce DX is still in the early stages.

Mastering Salesforce DevOps explains how to build a powerful and comprehensive DevOps workflow for Salesforce--allowing you to finally deploy the world's most innovative platform using the world's most effective and efficient techniques. It addresses the need for a comprehensive guide to DevOps for Salesforce, allowing teams to bring proven practices from the IT world to resolve the hardest problems facing Salesforce developers today.

This book is a gem, it has helped me to understand the intricacies of Salesforce, Software Engineering, DevOps and Release Management. I recommend this book to all the budding architects out there, since I know that this book is not just about DevOps, it's so much more. It has helped me appreciate and widen my horizon of thinking about the whole Software Building and Delivery process as opposed to just isolated parts that were assigned to me.

I am taking my time reading it and refer to it frequently for advice which I can immediately apply in the real world scenarios I seek out to solve for my clients.

The easy to understand language and detailed explanation is really helpful to help novices like me understand and value of Enterprise Architecture. Books like these help me appreciate the value of books even more that how you can learn so much from others' experience.

This is a very well-written, profound and up-to-date book covering all important parts for learning and enhancing knowledge about DevOps for Salesforce.

Because of "serving as a reference book" it is sometimes not easy to read from the beginning to end, but the author makes that clear upfront.

While reading this book I had many "Ah, that's interesting/good to know!" moments and so I'm looking forward to go through this book again and again.

I can definitely recommend this book to both beginners and more advanced people.

Thank you Andrew for sharing your extensive knowledge!
