Using Force.com, you can build enterprise applications with world-class value, scalability, and reliability--and do it in days or weeks, not months or years.

Throughout, Ouellette covers all you need to know about user interfaces, database design, workflow, analytics, security, and much more. All his code samples can be run and adapted using a no-cost Force.com Developer Edition account.
