Salesforce DX is a series of tools, features and APIs to make it easier for Salesforce teams to adopt modern DevOps. It encourages developers to adopt best practices already common on other platforms and software development stacks, like using version control, and automating more parts of the release process. SFDX comprises several features to help, including:
An iteration on the Force.com migration tool, with improvements to pushing and pulling metadata to and from orgs
Short-lived orgs that are easy to create and tear down, designed as an alternative to dev sandboxes
A series of plugins for VSCode, following the effective deprecation of the Eclipse-based Force.com IDE
A new packaging model to better facilitate encapsulation and composition of functionality
