Developers can use the programming model alongside the existing Lightninig developer services and low-code tools to create reusable code block for Lightning apps. The pace of Salesforce growth and the requisite need for developers has outpaced the ability to for the market to supply them. According to recent research by ACT, The App Association: “Nearly a quarter-million job openings for software developers in the United States remain unfilled.”
Are Salesforce shifting to a Open Standards-Based Model?
- The Base Lightning Components, a library of more than 80 building blocks that accelerate app development.
There is support for the latest versions of Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and version 1.X of Apple Safari. The Lightning Component framework is also built on the open source Aura framework. This allows developers to create code that is independent of Salesforce data.
Enterprise Times: What does this mean
Companies are now able to leverage a wider range of Salesforce Tools to increase the output of development teams. The tools now available include developer tools such as Salesforce DX, Lightning App Builder and Lightning Flow. Organisations should be able to onboard new employees faster now. They can also use the tools to develop apps that integrate with IoT, Einstein, Salesforce CRM and other Salesforce applications faster.
Mike Rosenbaum, EVP of Product, Salesforce commented: “We are constantly working and looking for ways to help our customers go faster, innovate and deliver new products to their customers and employees,” said: “With Lightning Web Components, we are giving developers a new, sophisticated, standards-driven framework for building enterprise apps on Lightning. Every time we have released a new platform capability, we see an acceleration of innovation in our 150,000 customer base and we are excited to see what our community of developers will be able to create with Lightning Web Components.”
