Do you want to be able to confidently design and build apps that support business processes within the Lightning Platform?

By the end of this Salesforce book, you'll not only have learned how to build data models, enforce data security, and implement business logic and process automation, but also have gained the confidence to pass the Platform App Builder exam and achieve Salesforce certification.
