5.0 out of 5 stars Well-written and extremely useful guide to programming in Apex
By CathyW on December 31, 2020
This book is intended for intermediate and advanced Apex developers, and I consider myself to be an “advanced beginner”. However the concepts are explained very clearly, so I was able to understand and learn functionality that I haven’t used before.

I found the chapter on common mistakes, and the section on performance to be particularly interesting and very helpful. The code examples included in each chapter helped to illustrate key points, and the sidebar notes in the text that referenced websites to learn topics in more depth were quite useful.

I expect to refer to this book frequently, and I highly recommend it to any Apex developer who would like to learn new techniques and improve their code, no matter what their level of skill.

My copy of the book was courtesy of Packt publishing.
