How would you like a Salesforce App that tracks how many crickets were eaten by a chameleon? Sound strange? Well, that’s just what one developer did in the Salesforce Be A Builder Campaign.
This week we are taking a bit of a break from our regular tips and tricks and would like to bring you a bit of fun. A few weeks ago, Salesforce unveiled their ‘Be A Builder’ campaign, which featured a series of instructional app development videos and a dev community group encouraging fun app builds, sharing and even prizes. The campaign was very well received and garnered a lot of attention and engagement. People from all around the world tuned into the videos, followed along with the instructions and learned some quick tips and tools for making their own apps. They used their creativity, built and shared their creations with the hashtag #beabuilder.
In a follow-up blog post last week, Salesforce Admins unveiled some of the better results of the campaign. One participant built the previously mentioned app for monitoring how many crickets his pet chameleon was fed. The app featured Lightning Custom Components, Reports and Dashboards, Quick Actions, Apex Code, and Custom Objects. Just goes to show you that Salesforce really can be customized for just about anything under the sun!
