My Takeaway for Trigger Framework – MyTriggers

After custom metadata type is released, not only Salesforce applications start to use it for app configuration but also trigger frameworks use it to control the trigger logic.

If you have listened to Szandor’s talk, you will see that MyTriggers trigger framework is one of those heavily leveraging custom metadata type.

One of the biggest features in MyTriggers is that it uses custom metadata type to control and visualize the trigger logic so that admins and business users could also understand the logic without checking the code.

In my opinion, regardless of which trigger framework do we pick up, it is more important to understand what features the selected framework supports and how it was implemented by looking into the code. You could check this play-by-play to learn from experts Dan Appleman and Don Robins :).
