About this event

This class takes place on Saturday, May 14th from 10:00AM - 4:30PM with a break for lunch. 

In this class, we aim to demystify mobile app development and give you a crash course in Salesforce app building. You'll build a simple enterprise business app without writing any code. Salesforce's "low-code" platform does have front and back end programming tools, but a lot of app development is done without code. Using Salesforce's point & click platform tools, you will create a cloud database, mobile user interfaces, simple business logic, reports, and dashboards. Your sample app will run in both a web browser and on a mobile device using the free (always, forever, it's yours) Developer Edition of Salesforce and the free Salesforce1 Mobile App. 

What this class will cover:

• Overview of mobile app development

• Hands-on project building a real, working app that is yours to keep

• Resources for future self-guided learning online


Students should be fairly familiar with using internet and mobile applications and Googling for answers to all of life’s questions. You do not need any prior Salesforce experience.

Tech Requirements:  

Please bring a laptop, not an iPad/tablet. The visual development tools only run on a modern browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer 9 or later).

Financial Need:

About the teacher:

Mary Scotton (@rockchick322004) has over 20 years of experience in enterprise software and loves the ease of development in the cloud. As one of the early members of the Platform Product Management team at Salesforce, Mary designed the core “point & click” tools that make customization and app building accessible to non-programmers. She holds several patents for those designs. These days, she spends her time educating, enabling, and having fun with the awesome Salesforce Admin and Developer community. She is focused on raising the visibility of underrepresented people in tech, and encourages hard conversations and radical inclusivity.
