In 2015, Salesforce University unveiled 3 shiny new Certifications for the platform:

As I already held the Salesforce Developer 401 certificate I had the option of taking the App Builder transition exam. I'm really pleased to have passed it and in this blog post I'll share some of the resources I used for my revision.

The Unstoppable Process Builder

Process Builder not showing Delete/Deactivate button

Process Builder, or Lightning Process Builder is fantastic tool developed by Salesforce.com to set up complex automation without needing Triggers.

If you haven't used Process Builder before, I really recommend the Trailhead module on it.

I recently visited a customer who had a process running but was unable to deactivate it. They were seeing this error:
08:43:49.439 (5439388332)|FATAL_ERROR|System.DmlException: Insert failed. First exception on row 0; first error: CANNOT_EXECUTE_FLOW_TRIGGER, The record couldn’t be saved because it failed to trigger a flow. 
This is a write up of the fix I deployed.
