Today, Nate Totten, Product Manager for Developer Tooling at Salesforce, is on the show to share his insight and wisdom on some of the various tools now available to developers. We discuss a few changes that have come to tooling, especially VS Code and the Salesforce CLI, and what we can expect to see on the developer roadmap in the months ahead.

  • Updates for VS Code, including new autocomplete
  • Convenience features recently added including improved support for ApexDocs
  • Updates to the tools that help managing your local code with orgs
