Top Five Things I’ve Learned So Far About Lightning Components January 27, 2016 - If you are reading this, Lightning Components are something you’ve probably heard about by now. However, if your situation is at all like mine, you’re probably finding very few people doing much of anything with them yet, especially when it comes to doing so for commercial customers. Sure, you may know some folks who […]
Son of a B*tch — More Drinking Admins December 16, 2015 - This past week Apex & the Limits released the first of what we hope to be many videos. We recruited several of our fellow MVPs to lip sync while three of us took turns singing the lyrics. All the credits are up on the video, so you should go Son of Bitch — Admins Drinking! […]
How To Report Problems to Your Support Circle December 9, 2015 - As a consultant, I see many orgs, have written many many lines of code, and work on numerous projects simultaneously. This is always the case and if you are working with a consultant, they’re likely juggling many projects as well and have also written so many lines of code that one project tends to bleed […]
Are You Going to Tahoe? December 4, 2015 - I’m not — and I’m never going to be able to forgive myself for it, but due to some personal things going on, my family just couldn’t swing having me away that weekend. That being said, I’m asking you all to consider going. Maybe you missed Dreamforce, or maybe you are “missing” Dreamforce, maybe this […]
Timeout November 18, 2015 - To the few precious readers that I manage to attract to my blog, I want to apologize for missing a couple of weeks. There was a user group meeting, and then a trailhead workshop, (locusts, a terrible flood, I wasn’t my fault I swear to Gooooooooooood!!!) that I had to prep for so I missed […]
Apex Logic Through Formulas: Part 3 November 4, 2015 - I’ve had to reach into my own bag of formulas to find an example for this week’s entry. Last week I was focused on our local user group so we didn’t have an entry, this week I’d like to make up for that a little bit. This week’s formula is a bit more involved but […]
Apex Logic Through Formulas: Part 2 October 21, 2015 - Last week we dove right in with a formula from SteveMo. This week, I want to take a small step back and rather than just transform a formula into Apex, I’d like to talk on a more general level. Often times our formulas are checking for equality between two fields, or one field and some […]
Apex Logic Through Formulas: Part 1 October 14, 2015 - Last week I mentioned that I would be starting a new series of sorts. Today will be the first entry in that series. My hope is to bridge the gap between point and click development, and slinging code for those admins/developers that are hesitant to make “the leap of faith” into the world of of […]
New Mini Series Starting Soon October 7, 2015 - One of my absolute favorite conversations at Dreamforce this year happened during my last night in San Francisco. I was out until the wee hours of the morning with a group of people and happen to be fortunate enough to sit next to SteveMo and Adam Daw. For those of you that don’t know Adam, […]
So Long DF15, It Was VERY Personal September 21, 2015 - Introduction: I began composing this entry upon returning to my hotel room after the closing of the Benioff/Harris Q & A session. I wanted to capture what was going through my head (and heart) before I lost it. I didn’t get to finish the whole thing as there were places to go and people to […]
