Salesforce DX and the Admin

Salesforce DX and the Admin: Where do they fit in?

You know what Salesforce DX is by now, right?

At Dreamforce 2016, Salesforce announced Salesforce DX-a new and improved way to develop on the Force.com platform. According to Salesforce, Salesforce DX would help developers “build together by deploying version control over everything across your code, org configuration, and metadata and leverage modern collaboration technologies such as Git and third-party test and build automation tools.”

Since the announcement, developers everywhere have been itching to try their hands at the Salesforce DX. Fast forward to TrailheaDX 2017, a 2-day developer conference, where Salesforce ushered in the beta of Salesforce DX to the public.

While Salesforce developers everywhere applaud Salesforce for a remarkable job of bringing the platform up to par with modern software development practices with DX, admins are left wondering if they still fit into the development process.

Salesforce has become one of the most accessible development platforms in the world by supporting both programmatic (code) and declarative (click) development. Unfortunately, the company has yet to lay out a clear way for admins to contribute to the development and release processes of a project using Salesforce DX.

So, is it still possible for admins to contribute, review, and deploy changes from a Salesforce DX environment? We believe that it is possible and this AutoRabit blog postwill show you (the Admin) how.

If you’re an IT manager and want more info on DX and where it impacts you the most, DM me or leave a comment.
