Challenge Overview

Use your JavaScript and Salesforce skills to build a reusable Lightning component for dependent picklsits similar to this. The component would have two picklists, one initially populated with data and the second would not be populated until a value is selected from the first one. The second picklist is dependent on the value of the first picklist to load data from the controller... hence the challenge name. So, an example might be the first picklist is populated with accounts and when you choose an account, it populates the second picklist with all of the contact names for that account. Or perhaps, selecting an opportunity and then the related opportunity line items in the second picklist.

The component should be as generic as possible and configurable to be used with various objects. Perhaps implemting some sort of event notification.

Reliability Rating and Bonus

For challenges that have a reliability bonus, the bonus depends on the reliability rating at the moment of registration for that project. A participant with no previous projects is considered to have no reliability rating, and therefore gets no bonus. Reliability bonus does not apply to Digital Run winnings. Since reliability rating is based on the past 15 projects, it can only have 15 discrete values.
