A Sneak Peak of Einstein for Developers

Einstein for Developers is an AI-powered tool that assists Salesforce developers in writing code more efficiently and effectively.

It is available as a Visual Studio Code extension and utilizes the power of Salesforce’s CodeGen large language model to generate code from natural language instructions.

For example I asked Einstein for Developer to “Write an apex code to accept an account id and populate the account’s billing address to all contacts mailing address for that account”

And here is the Apex code that it came up with:

// Apex class to populate the Account's billing address to all its related Contact Mailing addresses
public with sharing class AddressUtil {
    // Method to update the Address on Account and Contacts
    public static void updateAddress(Id accountId, String billingStreet, String billingCity, String billingState, String billingPostalCode, String billingCountry) {
        // Update the Address on the Account
        Account account = [SELECT Id, BillingStreet, BillingCity, BillingState, BillingPostalCode, BillingCountry FROM Account WHERE Id = :accountId LIMIT 1];
        if (account != null) {
            account.BillingStreet = billingStreet;
            account.BillingCity = billingCity;
            account.BillingState = billingState;
            account.BillingPostalCode = billingPostalCode;
            account.BillingCountry = billingCountry;
            update account;

            // Update the Address on all related Contact Mailing addresses
            List<Contact> contacts = [SELECT Id, MailingStreet, MailingCity, MailingState, MailingPostalCode, MailingCountry FROM Contact WHERE AccountId = :accountId];
            if (contacts != null) {
                for (Contact contact : contacts) {
                    contact.MailingStreet = billingStreet;
                    contact.MailingCity = billingCity;
                    contact.MailingState = billingState;
                    contact.MailingPostalCode = billingPostalCode;
                    contact.MailingCountry = billingCountry;
                update contacts;

You can use it Einstein for Developers to create boilerplate code, get code suggestions, and scan for code vulnerabilities.

One of the major benefits of using “Einstein for Developers” over other similar tools (e.g. GitHub Copilot) is that it is trained for Salesforce languages and frameworks. The other major benefit is it will evolve every time Salesforce releases new features on the platform. For example when Dataweave in Apex was introduced, Einstein for Developers could write Apex code to use Dataweave.
