What is Code Builder?

Salesforce Code Builder is a web-based development tool for improving coding for the Salesforce platform. It's similar to an interest-based version of Microsoft's Visual Studio Coke, making it simple to use for individuals who are already familiar with VS code. 

It's a new development toolkit that's open and customizable, and it's incorporated into a new web-based environment (IDE). This means that by having access to the most recent Salesforce development tools, developers, administrators, and architects may increase their productivity and inventiveness.

This community-driven, open platform facilitates the publishing and consumption of VS Code extensions, allowing developers to create a feature-rich IDE experience that supports DevOps workflows and source-driven development.

Einstein for Developers

Introduced in beta for VS Code during Dreamforce in September, Einstein for developers stands out as a generative AI coding tool designed specifically for coding languages exclusive to Salesforce. Developed with CodeGen, Salesforce's open-source Large Language Model (LLM), it transforms straightforward English prompts into executable code.

Exciting news for Code Builder users – Einstein for Developers is now available for both Code Builder and VS Code! Easily integrate it into your workspace by installing it directly from the extensions menu within Code Builder.

Salesforce Perspective 

Code Builder boosts developer efficiency by making a standardized tools experience accessible to all Trailblazers, empowering anyone to create on the platform. Administrators can swiftly initiate their journey with a preconfigured experience that includes essential Salesforce tools. In contrast, seasoned developers can expedite their workflow using a fully-featured Integrated Development Environment (IDE) personalized with preferred extensions from the Open VSX marketplace, all conveniently accessed through their browser.

Required Editions 

Code Builder is accessible across all Salesforce editions, encompassing Enterprise, Performance, Professional, and Unlimited Editions.

Notably, it is not accessible within the EU Operating Zone, a specialized paid service catering to data residence requirements. Nevertheless, Code Builder is supported in European Union enterprises that fall outside the purview of the EU Operating Zone, adhering to standard product terms and conditions.
