Dreamforce 2018 Speakers list is out, So how many from SFSE managed to get a Session or two on it. Similar questions have been asked in past so wondering what SFSE speakers offering in DF 18.
I am doing "Continuous Integration with Salesforce DX: Concepts and Connections". It'll be based on a talk I gave at PhillyForce earlier this year.
My Theater session is up. It is on using the MetadataComponentDependency pilot to create a graph of an orgs "Happy Soup". You can then visualizse that graph in various ways to look for things like potential packages, disconnected code, where a particular field is used, ...
When moving to Salesforce DX unlocked packages you need a fast and easy way to identify the modules that make up a Salesforce org and how they are related to each other. This also applies when needing insight into how a specific field is used by other components.
By using MetadataComponentDependency queries along with Gephi, an open-source visualization and exploration tool for graphs, we can rapidly untangle the dependencies via a range of layouts and metrics. These interactive visualizations aid developers in understanding the shape of a Salesforce org, leading to benefits as migrating Visualforce pages to Lightning components and identifying potential packages from complex metadata relationships.
The final examples will have labels on the nodes, but here is the general idea from a fresh scratch org where there are for custom objects. Two linked via a Master-Detail relationship and two via a lookup relationship.
Or a more complicated example with the Dreamhouse app:
