Zoho Developer Hangout (ZDH) - Episode 3 | Building Custom Functions and Automation Designs

We're happy to introduce the third episode of Zoho Developer Hangout, where our developer community members come together to discuss the automation capabilities and integration between Zoho applications and other third-party applications.


In this episode, our community member, Christopher Mowers, Zoho Developer Team Lead at AspenTech CRM, explains the most important aspect of coding, i.e. automation design. He provides a live demonstration highlighting the difference between a standard function and one that adheres to best design principles. Through this demonstration, Chris shares insights on the considerations one should make before writing Deluge code and offers best practices for efficient execution without compromising optimization.


Don't miss the opportunity to learn from Chris as he demonstrates how to enhance code runtime and effectively manage API calls, making your coding skills even more proficient.


Difficulty level: Moderate. A basic understanding of coding is needed.
