Chance for Glory 3: Contribute to Two Cool New Flow Extensions: ProcessBuilderAndWorkflowRulesConverter and Flexcards

I wanted to invite anyone in the Flowhana who can write some code to participate in a couple of team efforts that are spinning up.

On the Apex side, we want to extend the Process Builder Converter tool. Current work items include adding support for PB processes that couldn’t be converted in Summer ’20 but can be converted in Winter ’21 (example, if you use a related object reference), and implementing the first conversion support for Workflow Rules.

On the Lightning Web Components side, we’re creating a new screen component called a Flexcard.

Here are the stories currently being focused on:

You don’t have to be an expert coder to contribute to these projects. In fact, one of the coolest things about UnofficialSF is watching noncoders become coders, beginner coders become intermediate coders, and intermediate coders build advanced skills. I’d say that the basic prerequisites are:

  1. you need to have successfully built either a flow invocable action or a flow lwc screen component.
  2. you need to understand git reasonably well (up through section 3.5 of this book)

As long as you’re willing to be responsive to code reviews and are reasonably diligent about trying to write clear code, you’re very welcome.

You also don’t have to worry that you’re making a big commitment. First of all, the work is divided into reasonably sized stories, and if you find yourself getting in too deep, don’t worry that you’ll leave others annoyed. This is hobbyist stuff and it needs to be fun and satisfying or it’s not worth doing.

Interested? Drop a comment below and we’ll get in touch.
