A Skeleton Crew (aka Skeleton Force) is the minimum number of personnel needed to operate and maintain functionality.
This blog introduces the reader to the Force.com platform. A platform for building and running business applications in the cloud. Since a business application is in the cloud, it allows the business to focus on the business needs and not on the hardware to support the business needs. Hence a Skeleton Force.
Initially, I intend this blog to describe the declarative or point-and-click functionality of the force.com platform.
