Tis the season for Star Wars buzz, and with a record breaking opening weekend behind us, there’s more excitement than ever for this classic franchise! Many of us geeks look to our fandoms for life lessons, and the Death Star is a classic example of a failed project. With its astronomical budget and fatal flaw allowing for its instant destruction, it is the archetype of a project management disaster. Well, the team at Trailhead agree, and built a lesson to walk you through creating a project management tool that just might save you from Lord Vader’s wrath.
The Battle Star App Trailhead lesson is perfect for the aspiring admin, Salesforce noob, or anyone who wants to brush up on how to build a custom application in Salesforce. It’s filled with fun Star Wars jokes, so nerds like me who already know how to do all the stuff in the lesson will be just as entertained. You’ll learn how to build a custom App from the ground up starting with custom objects and fields, then diving into business logic and beyond. And for you technophobes, no need to fear, no code is required for you to use the force! Now it’s time to roll up your sleeves, throw off your hood, get out the lightsaber, and start slicing away at this fun lesson. May the force be with you, and remember, “do or do not, there is no try.”
