Salesforce unveiled the Salesforce Platform for Slack at the TrailblazerDX developer conference. That includes automation in Slack via an Apex SDK for app-building and connections to the company’s Flow low-code platform to enable simplicity.
At that conference announced a new toolkit for its developers to build integrations and customize apps on Slack’s apps.
With the Apex SDK, Salesforce developers can use the regular Apex programming language to customize Slack apps made using the Block Kit UI framework. The Apex SDK permits access to data in Salesforce, without the need for middleware.
