February 2007: Apex Momentum Continues
The first month of the Apex Code Developer Preview Program was an enormous success. Due to popular demand, we're pleased to begin delivering the program more broadly starting this week. If you haven't already done so, be sure to sign up for the Apex Code Developer Preview Program and start familiarizing yourself with Apex Code capabilities firsthand. Also, don't forget to drop by the ADN Discussion Boards to get your Apex questions answered and share your feedback with the ADN community. We look forward to your help in shaping the future of Apex Code.


Apex Day Wrap-Up

We've posted some highlights from Apex Day, including a slideshow and videos of some key developer sessions. While there's nothing quite like attending in person and participating in one of our live developer events, this is the next best thing. To view the videos, you must log in as an ADN member.

Watching the Wiki Grow

Apex Wiki content is growing rapidly and ADN members are busy contributing useful resources, including a great new page in the Composite Framework section where ADN member William Guwei provides sample code for avoiding the creation of duplicate accounts. We're sending William an ADN t-shirt as a token of our thanks. We're eager to see your contributions to the Apex Wiki, and we'll send a t-shirt to anyone who adds something that catches our eye. If you want to contribute, but are unfamiliar with the ways of the Wiki, visit Wiki Help to get started.

ADN App of the Month: FTP Attachments  
February marks delivery of the first AppExchange application from an Indian developer. Built on the Winter '07 release architecture, Enzigma Software's FTP Attachments allows you to store salesforce.com attachments on your own FTP server.
