You’ll come away with best practices and a sneak peak into upcoming features on the roadmap.
Route Your Triggers Like a Pro
Tuesday, September 25, 10:00 AM – 10:20 AM
Did you have a closer look at your trigger handlers recently? In many cases, platform events can encapsulate and orchestrate your business logic much cleaner than triggers and are easier to integrate with from outside of your org. Custom metadata types enable you to make your triggers and platform event handlers configurable for yourself and – caveat emptor – customizable and replaceable across namespaces. And what about this new Trigger Context Enum? Learn to route your business logic like a pro and to conduct the traffic in your org and/or packages in reliable, performant and – if you want to – configurable ways.
