Why Learn PeopleTools Development?

PeopleSoft development skills have been in great demand for several years now. Unlike several other skills like Java, .Net etc., which have a lot of people working in, PeopleSoft PeopleTools is considered a niche skill. That is why PeopleSoft Developers easily earn more than $100,000 per year, which is much higher than the average salary of a programmer or developer working in IT.

Wondering why? Of course there is demand but the secret lies in the fact that it takes years to master PeopleTools.

All this changes now!

No longer do you need to attend a 5 day boring class and expect to retain all that was taught in a series of boring lectures and average quality supplemental material.

You can now learn PeopleTools at your own pace and master each and every topic. Realize your dreams of becoming a high skilled PeopleSoft consultant, command higher billing rates, lead & manage bigger teams, upgrades and critical implementations.

This course will provide you with the skills necessary to become a proficient PeopleTools developer. Through this course, we build an application to introduce and explain concepts, from simple to complex. We'll start by creating a simple one-page application. We'll progress by exploring various controls to prompt and display data on a page, and move to manipulating the page through PeopleCode, maintaining calculated fields, and use effective dating and parent-child scroll levels.

The application that you'll build during this course comprises elements of PeopleTools development that every PeopleTools developer should possess, and what every project manager or technical recruiter expects you to know. The video lectures are accompanied with notes alongside the video to help reinforce the material.

What Is Inside this Course?

The course is divided into three distinct sections: Essentials, Progressions, and Mastery.

In Essentials, Application Designer, the PeopleTools Integrated Development Environment (IDE) is demonstrated, it's sections identified, and how definitions are opened, and organized into Projects. The common steps of PeopleTools is described, and you go through each step as you begin to build an application.

PeopleTools Progressions expands on Essentials by introducing Translate Values as an attribute of Field Definitions, and how you can make effective-dated changes to these values. You'll discover the behavior of some of the common page controls, such as radio-buttons, drop-down lists, prompted value lookup, and Effective Dated prompt tables. You'll learn about Related Display fields, and how they are bound to Display Control fields. You'll also learn how to create a custom search view.

PeopleTools Mastery introduces how PeopleTools enforces Referential Integrity, Scroll Levels within a component, and the purpose of Derived Work Records in your development. You'll learn how to manipulate the behavior of page controls based on the values of other fields on the page. And you will learn event driven PeopleCode, the programming language of PeopleTools.

All of these concepts are learned and reinforced through the use of careful explanation and demonstration as you build a significant application directly on a PeopleSoft instance.
