Scope. The scope of the guide seems overwhelming. It covers every nuance of the package platform – setting up an org with data, running tests, uploading, deployment, help and training – for someone new to the platform, they might be frightened off to think of all the infrastructure that is needed before they can start solving their business problem.
- To be fair, much of the ground we cover needs to be covered on every platform, whether is Java, .NET, Node, or Apex. About both Continuous Delivery and Force.com. A driver for the guide is to set out everything we wish we knew in 2011, when we started to develop our first managed package. The guide is comprehensive and opinionated because we want to make setting up the pipeline as painless as possible. We also want to provide enough context so that other practitioners an offer specific advice as how we can improve.
