  • Key prerequisites for working with Scratch Orgs and Orgs using VSCode
  • Learn some nifty shortcuts in VSCode – cmd-p, ctrl-tilde, code ., code folder
  • Learn how to create Projects for use with Scratch Orgs (DX)

  • Awesome! Thank you so much, I was worried that was the end of the series, just as it was started to get to the nitty gritty. These videos have resally helped me getting to grips with DX for implementation at our organisation!
