Starting with a survey of the different kinds of problems custom functions can be used to solve, this session will introduce a number of key concepts that developers will find useful when approaching custom functions. The focus will be on problem solving techniques and ways to create code that is effective, self-contained and portable. The session will include a demonstration of methods for debugging complex and recursive custom functions, and ways that custom functions can leverage variables and circumvent stack limits, along with a range of techniques for building robust custom function code.
