This book is not intended to be a deep-dive on security, programming, reporting, configuration, etc. but more of a high-level overview on salesforce.com, Force.com development, tools, methodology and other resources. We will not cover all aspects of salesforce.com. We wrote this book to (hopefully) become an invaluable resource for anyone new or inexperienced with the Force.com platform.
For new administrators and developers coming on to the platform, we see a gaping hole in existing reference books. This book is not intended for end users or advanced developers. This book is for people somewhere in the middle; let’s say a business analyst or a new Java or .NET developer. We would like this to be the first book you pick up after your boss walks in and says, “Let’s take a look at salesforce.com and see if we can build some applications in the cloud”.
This book contains the information that we wish we had when we started developing applications on Force.com.

Where was this book six years ago? As a Certified Salesforce.com Administrator, I made quite a few mistakes along the way, many of which could have been averted if I'd had this book in my possession. This book fills a much needed niche between the Advanced Admin 301 and Developer 401 and 501 courses and I greatly appreciate the authors' contribution to my personal development with the Force.com platform.
An essential guide to Salesforce.com; from honing the skills you already have to stretching you to try things with Salesforce you thought "only developers"' could do. Jeff and Wes provide information and instruction that's not only easy to grasp but the kind of things that will make you a Salesforce.com hero in your organization. It's the "I've got Salesforce, so now what" guide to applying the power of the cloud to real business situations and making the most of your Salesforce investment.
This book is the missing manual for all developers/administrators who work on the Salesforce CRM and Force.com platform. There are many hidden gems which you won't find in the official salesforce documentation. Highly Recommended for both beginners and veterans.
