In March, we’ll be talking about the business reasons for Lighting Web Component adoption, how get more apps and flexibility into a single Salesforce org, building architectural diagrams like a pro, collaborating with our #AwesomeAdmin friends on content about careers AND integration, and more. There’s lots ahead in March, and we’ll be updating this post as resources go live.

Let’s take a quick look at some of what you can expect.

On the blog:

  • What Architects Need to Know About Aura vs Lightning Web Components: Lead Developer Advocate Alba Rivas takes a look at impacts of choosing to migrate from Aura to Lightning Web Components. From changes in toolchains to simpler developer on-boarding and ways to get distributed teams on the same page faster, you’ll get an in-depth understanding of the tech and ways to build a business case for migration.
  • Correspondences: From Admin to Architect: For the latest installment in this series, Customer Success Architect Marie van Roekel joins Salesforce consultant/Admin/Golden Hoodie recipient Paul Ginsberg to talk about what’s behind titles like ‘Admin’ or ‘Architect,’ trends they’re seeing in the ecosystem about these roles, and their own career journeys.
  • We’ll also have a piece from Salesforce Program Architect Denis Krizanovic, walking through a way to shift your mindset around building, shipping and maintaining a multitude of apps within a single Salesforce instance — and how you can empower multiple stakeholders and teams to move fast and not break (anyone else’s) things.

Of course, these aren’t the only posts ahead in March. Other posts will look at topics like: how to approach Einstein Discovery projects, considerations for dependency management with Unlocked Packaging, and more.
