New Trailhead content: 4 Modules and 1 Project

As of today, there is new Trailhead content available. So for those of you that already finished all the Trails, Modules and Projects: You have something to do during the holidays. 🙂 In this blog I will outline all new content.

Developer Intermediate Trail

This module focusses on integration with external apps and systems using SOAP and REST callouts. You will learn the difference between web service and HTTP callouts, how to authorize an external site with remote site settings and performing callouts to retrieve data from and send data to external services using SOAP, REST and web services.

This is a temporary available project, so be sure to get that badge before the deadline!

 

Modules that are coming soon

There are 2 new modules in the Developer Intermediate Trail that will become available soon:
