Apex and Visualforce

I tried learning Apex coding only to realize it will take a while to learn significant enough to create the triggers that I want which I can do with native declarative tools.

I want to know if Visualforce is faster to learn than Apex and if it's even possible to learn without learning Apex first?

Hi Richard,
For development, Apex is mandatory as you will also need to write logic for your vf page which again require Apex writing skills. :)

You can start learning, with below links:
https://trailhead.salesforce.com/en/content/learn/trails/force_com_dev_beginner
https://trailhead.salesforce.com/en/content/learn/trails/force_com_dev_intermediate

These include not just Apex, but basic of Salesforce development, along with some Configuration parts.

Hi Richard,

If you want to learn only design of pages then you can try first with VF pages but if you need to do any DML operations then you would need Apex.

But you can start building up pages and append with simple validations and small updates.

Try to complete all trailhead modules related to Apex and VF pages which can give more idea on impmentation.

Hope above information was helpful.
