Behind every advanced Salesforce developer is a strong understanding of fundamental coding techniques in Apex. In this course, Apex Academy #2: Fundamental Salesforce Coding Techniques (the second course of the Apex Academy series), you'll learn the six core Apex tools: variables, collections, dot notation, IF statements, loops, and DML. Next, you'll discover SOQL and Workbench, an SOQL editor, and how to write SOQL queries. Finally, you'll learn how to use SOQL with Apex and test classes, watching demos along the way to solidify these concepts. By the end of this course, you'll know how to write better code in Apex, and you'll be a better Salesforce developer for it.
